I finally got around to installing this chain and it is awesome. No problems so far. A few friends run this chain so I tried it. The quality is outstanding
2 months in and it’s still looks now.
Ive run these chains on crf450rs for 10 years, chain last full season, hardly have to adjust , usually only after first ride, never used riveted links, always DID 520 vx2 x-ring clip and have never broken one,
I would recommend this chain to any one that owns a four stroke....my son owns a 2017 CRF 450r honda....This bikes has cam work ....head work... bike pulls hard.... I ...have made one slight adjustment... since the chain was installed two weeks ago...very pleased ...
So cool, makes it all come to life while riding
My chain came with a rivited master link which requires a chain riveting tool to install. In order to match the strength of this chain I would recommend a riveted link to match the chain strength. Chain has stretched the least of any chain I have ever bought. I usaully go though two sets of chain and sprockets a season and this chain has required the least maintenance to date. Out of the package the chain almost feels like a non o ring chain as far as flexibility and should eat up less HP at the wheel. This will be the chain I run going forward.
2009 KX450F. Greatt chain. Very smooth and stout. Bike rolled so much easier and quiet. Old chain was beat, but the difference was night and day.
Yes its higher priced than most, but Im getting at least 250 to 300 hours use out it, thats in conjunction with a Renenthal twin ring, cleaning & lubing (Bel Ray super clean chain lube) after every ride , mainly in Northern Calif
Really good chain only the master link has to be pressed on
