Suggested Chain

Hey guys im looking to buy a chain im assuming I need a new one because mine is tight in some places and loose in other places which tells me its stretched (i think lol) It has started slapping even after adjustment..

Either OEM or aftermarket im not looking to spend to much if someone could find a cheap oem or suggested aftermarket and could link me up that would be great

Thanks alot guys

its stock sprockets also

I just bought a new front and back sprocket plus a chain at vortex racing for around 260$ shipped. Motorcycles Unlimited is quoting me about 120 for labor so you might be looking to spend around 350-400 for installed. REPLACE YOU'RE SPROCKETS TOO!!!!

You should always change all 3 at the same time. Look closer at you're sprockets, they're probably misshapen towards one side. Putting a new chain on the old sprockets will cause the chain to wear to the pattern of the sprockets and wear out quicker. Someone else can probably word it better and give more defined reasons but that's basically it.

Renthal sprockets with a DID ERV3 520 gold chain. If you want some more acceleration, do a -1/+2 conversion.

It looks okay as long as it's a high quality chain. I've seen some crappy chinese brand chain's go to quick. Call up Motorcycles Unlimited if you haven't already and ask how much a chain and sprocket will run you. Don't forget to tell them you're from MotoHouston.

I can probably help you install the chain if you need it. I'd have to borrow a riveter if you get the riveted master link. Clip style is a snap to install.

The sprockets may look great, but they still have some wear on them. Old sprockets will make your new chain wear faster

Just got this kit (-1, +2) and its bad . Also sprung the extra $50 for the DID ERV3 Gold chain (only problem is if you plan on self installing it, it has a rivet master link) otherwise any shop could do it. Found a guy in College Station to install all 3 for $75.
