Great chain

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.

Good chain for the price!

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 - description needs rewritten.

Great product, BUT, the description should denote master link installation and/or prepare customer to buy clip master link also.

Just what I needed

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.

Good Looking Chain

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.

Good Puchase

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.

High Quality

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.

Excellent purchase

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 performance, very nice looking !

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 ! !

Chain

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.

520 conversion on CBR

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....

Q: Can be used with a clip style master link?
Over 11 months ago
It comes with a rivet style link, but would it be possible to install it with a clip-style link? is this clip available?

A: Yes. RK makes a clip style master link for this specific chain (search RK Racing Chain GB520XSO C/L Clip-Style Gold Connecting Link) on the internet. You really should consider using the rivet link though, they are much more durable. I keep a clip style in my kit just in case I ever break one of my rivet links on the trail, but I have never used it. "Breaking" and riveting a chain is incredibly easy if you have the right tool. I have an RK UCT 4060 Universal Chain Breaker, Cutter, Press-Fit and Rivet Tool Kit. A little pricey, but it is one of the best tools I have ever owned and small enough to carry in my pack on long trail or desert rides. Read the directions well and make it happen. You will never use a clip again...I promise.

Go to the following link to see the RK UTC 4060 instructions.
