Got it quickly and very satisfied
This is a great replacement for the stock chain and sprockets
I am a Renthal chain fan. Best chain out there. I've never had one break.
Ive have this chain on my kx450f to my wifes KX85 and my race quads. Very reliable. Love the gold look!
After trying several brands of chains about 4 years ago, started running the R1, and found out they outperformed any of the others that I had tried. Even on a 250 4-stroke ridden very hard on motocross tracks, the chains stretch very little and lasts for many hours of riding. I generally have to adjust only once or twice after first installing, and then it seems like I don't have to re-adjust forever.
I and my boys race motocross, we all use a version of this chain and it has never failed to deliver on he track. I work at Motosport.com and I'm super picky about my parts and modifications. I would recommend this chain to any of our customers or my racing buddies.
I don't use x or o-ring chains on my dirt bikes, and in my opinion this is the best chain overall for price and durability.
Only chain I will buy. Outlasts the life of the sprockets every time. Easy to cut. Never had a problem.
Chain wear is best measured by using a chain tool and measuring the elongation or amount of “stretch” over 16 pins, each chain has a maximum allowable measurement before needing replacement and below is the information.
Here’s the length on the R1 520, 259mm or 10.197 inches.
Don't try to push the pin back in, it's not worth it when that pin slips back out and you end up in the hospital. Take a close look at those pins and you will see that they are slightly mushroomed on each end to hold them in place. If you try to push it back in you won't be able to re-create that factory made mushroom. Bite the bullet and buy a new chain.
The stock length should be 114 links, but you may have to count the links if you've changed your gearing any to get a solid answer.
