Put this chain on my 15 yz450. Have had it over a year and is very durable. It is a little heavy but I know it is more of a street bike chain. Bought the master link clip type instead of the press on type it comes with. If you are tired of going through chains on your 450 and ride a lot, I would recommend this

This requires a chain tool to secure the rivet type master link, but is more secure and reliable than the clip type.
I have had this chain on my '02 XR650R for about 100 miles and so far it is doing great. As stated by other customers, it comes with a rivet style master link. I purchased the clip style for easier installation.
Great product, BUT, the description should denote master link installation and/or prepare customer to buy clip master link also.
My OG chain was obviously not well cared for as it only lasted about 10k on my 09 Ninja 250. I needed a 106 link, but bought this 120 link (in bling bling gold no less) for less than the cost of all the 106 link chains I was finding in boring old steel color. Cut it down to 106, installed, and my bike is my main commuter to work again. Its hard to judge its durability after only just installing it, but I think durability all comes down to how well you take care of it. As for ease of install, its not bad, but you either pay a shop a bunch of cash to do it, or you spend a lot of cash and invest in a good rivet tool.
It got here fast was easy to put on and is great at accelerating in all gears and speeds
This chain looks great. Love the gold color. Haven't had any issues with it. I also clean and lube my chain every 400-500 miles though, that may have something to do with it as well.
Superior chain never had a problem with them I have ran over 10 of their chains
Installed on my TRX250R X-rings keep sand out & lube in worked well on my trip to Dumont Dunes no stretch yet (burned 4 gallons of pre mix) looks good & performs well!
This chain is outstanding. Quality I expected, good looks and the best thing, MS pricing!! The best, what more would you want??
Chain works great with my 04 r6. No problems after about 300 miles or so. It came with a rivet connector which would have been handy to know in advance since i dont have the special tool. But he local bike store had a clip connector for 5 bucks so it wasnt a problem.
however, only comes with a riveted link. must buy a master link separately.
After scouring the web looking for a reasonably priced, high quality chain, I settled on this option for my '03 EX250 Ninja. RK is one of the only brands recommended for my bike because of it's reputation for reliability. I've been riding on it for 3 months now and I'm now confident in this chain's quality. The X rings require less lubruication and the gold look compliments my green plastics.
Perhaps the only down side to this chain is that the gold color (At least on mine) is a little bit paler than it appears on the box. Still, for the money, this is an excellent pick.
Only problem I had was that I didn't realize you needed a special tool to install the included master link, other than that its a great chain
Great looking chain, love the gold links. Very happy with the X-O ring design, noticed a good performance increase in acceleration after installing this with a gear set, even though the front and rear sprockets are still at factory cooth count. It was super easy to install with the breaker and rivetor tool I have. Again, looks great, preforms wonderfully, VERY PLEASED ! !
Great looking kit and can't beat the value!
The over all product was excellent, but for the average person they should use a master link that has a clip not rivit. The master was not supplied. It was extra. Also after installing the master you might want to put silicon on the clip it to keep it from coming off.
I installed this chain along with the renthal sprockets -1 front +2 rear on a '03 CBR RR and the conversion is fantastic! Not only livens up de bike, it feels like a totally different machine. The fit is great, the look is superb and it just simply rocks! Great replacement for the oem unit, much lighter and they arrive pre-lubricated....
Fast shipping, awesome product
