Motorcycle Chains

Without a motorcycle chain, how can you ride? You can’t! Chains are an important component of the drive system.

Over time, every chain will progressively stretch. This isn’t an indication of low quality materials, nor is it caused by the individual pieces stretching. Motorcycles require chains to move at high velocities under great loads and heat, and this wears out each link where it connects to the next. Over time, the grooves created by the links make the entire chain slightly longer. While you can use a chain tool to remove a link or two, eventually the chain must be replaced.

We have 520, 525, 530 motorcycle chains and many more. Some are standard chains, but we also have O-ring and X-ring styles as well, and these are particularly good if you dislike the regular maintenance that chains require.

Since chains are so essential, it’s important to only use chains from brands you trust to deliver exceptional performance. We understand this, and that’s why we’ve chosen to carry some of the leading brands in the industry. Here are just a few of the names we stock:

  • DID
  • EK
  • RK
  • MSR
  • Renthal
  • Primary Drive
  • Diamond
  • Pro-Taper

With so many options, you’re sure to find the right chain for your motorcycle. Some are made of gold. Others utilize experimental technology such as XW-rings. Some are designed specifically for high performance racing. Regardless of your preference, you’ll find it here. Go ahead and browse our selection to find out for yourself.

    Primary Drive Chain and Sprocket Kit

    This kit is awesome. Fit completely up to my bike with no issues. This was the first time that I have bought a chain and sprocket kit that I did not have to take links out of the chain. It comes ready for your ride. And the Steel sprockets are holding up well. The chain holds lube really well and rolls really nice. I have always ran other race chains and always took care of them but this chain seems to move freely and with ease. I race every weekend and ride trails and such during the week and I have only had to tighten my chain one time! Great product, great price and even better fit up.

  • DID 520 Chain

    DID 520 Chain

    Jesse in FL

    It works but stretches bad.

    Worked fine until after the first ride stretched. I thought its Okay its normal so I adjusted and rode again. Stretched again okay so I adjusted again. Rode it again and kept on stretching. This was all with 5 hours on the chain lol. I highly recommend getting a chain a little better if you have a built motor with a lot of power.

  • Primary Drive 520 RDO O-Ring Chain

    Primary Drive 520 RDO O-Ring Chain

    JAMES in NH

    false economy

    This was a cheap looking chain when I pulled it out of the box. Have never seen a chain with cut-outs in the side plates. It looked weak and sure enough it was. Every one of the inner plates cracked at the pin. This was on a DR350, not exactly a high HP chain abuser type of bike. Probably lucky in that respect because a more powerful bike might have broken the chain, which could have ended badly. Waste of money and potentially dangerous, I will never buy one of these chains again.

    Good O-Ring Chain

    I have used this chain on various bikes from wr450f, yz450f, wr250f, and drz400s. From the street to the dirt, through the mud, and back on the street this chains has held its own !
