standard chain

I've been looking at chains today(x-ring sealed chains), but I'm not sure what is on my bike right now. Isn't 520 standard? and if I have a stock swingarm (not stretched or any t like that) shouldn't 110 links fit just fine?

lastly, I was wondering about the differences/benefits of 520/530 chains/sprockets. Any help is greatly appreciated...

Stock for your bike should be 530 X 108 links.

520 and 530 are incompatible with one another's sprockets.

You have a 929, which is almost the same as my 954. Our stock chain size is 530 x 108 Links.

You should also have a 16T/43T stock sprocket set up as well.

If you have a 520 installed now then I don't know what to tell ya.

Why do you want a 200? Most people with out machines go to a 180/55/17 for it's taller aspect ratio and quicker turning.

Stock for ours by the way is 190/50/17.

well, honestly...I dont want a 200...i think its too big and I actually have a 180 on it now. But I was trying to get another red one and the only thing I could find was a 200. But it turns out they sold it anyway, so I think I'm going to try the 190 and see what its like. If it sucks, I'll go back to the 180 (which I have no problems with as it is)
