Stick with your stock size for starters. I have used the Rk chains with success.

yeah i did but when you get arrested on it and the towing company sticks it in their outdoor impound lot for a several days in the 32 degree weather and rain it tends to get a little rusty :BangHead: impound lots, and they a$$ raped me on the fee to get it out. Oh well called the Sheriffs office on them when i got it out and got my money back and they got a little ticket from the Popo for breaking the law on the Standardized Texas Towing fee lol I got you good fuka

how many miles on the chain and sprockets? Stay with stock unless you have a specific purpose, like stunting or tracking

Yeah if it doesn't have any tight spots in the chain clean and lube it and youll be fine.

If you just want to spend that extra money I have a gold Rk for about a hundred bucks or a Regina for a little bit more.

Drop a tooth on the front sprocket with the chain and you will pleased.

South West houston i meant where you from like the U.S or where because they make some chains that have little flags of them it looks pretty cool just go with a D.I.D O ring gold chain.
