Purchased For CRF250L
Bought this chain for my 2017 CRF250L. I got it with 106 links (stock chain size) and it works with the 13 tooth front sprocket and 42 tooth rear sprocket. 620 miles on the chain and it still looks new.

Best chain i've bought!
I put this on my bike with new sprockets, adjusted it when i put it on and i've ridden my bike in a variety of conditions from fire roads, hill climbing, single track with rocks, roots, and everything in between about 15 times and its about time for the first adjustment. Amazing product!

Going strong, 2k miles so far
Easy installation, looks great on a black bike. I had to replace a sub-frame bolt that stuck out the backside of its hole too far and rubbed intermittently on the chain, but it needed replaced anyhow.

Nicely made
Just. Began using chain. So all I can say is that so far so good. Compared to other chains I've used the connecting link went together better than any other chain I've previously used. I have 10 motorcycles so if this chain works out. I'll continue to buy them. Rated this 3 star's because I've just begun using it. If it works out will give it 5 stars.

great chain for less
my riding buddy bought one of the primary drive x-ring chains many years ago. it is still on his bike and he rides almost every weekend. i purchased a DID narrow x-ring chain for 2 times the money and it is holding up as well. the primary drive is as good if not better than any chain i have ever purchased.do not let any one fool you. buy a x-ring chain for your bike and it will last and last. the weight difference is not going to make enough difference to keep you from winning a race.

Is the master link rivet or clip style?
Tommy T on Nov 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This includes a clip style master link.
I have an 05 KTM 525 exc. I run 14/52 will 520x120 be sufficient or will I need more links?
Jacob G on Oct 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You will need at least a 520x122 chain. Your stock size rear sprockets are 14/48 so since you went up 4 teeth in the rear, you will add 2 links for every 2 teeth you add. Your stock chain size is a 118 so you will add 4 links since you added 4 teeth to the rear.
Does the chain include a master link?
A shopper on Oct 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the master link is included.
Does the chain include a master link?
Bill H on Oct 5, 2016

I am getting a 13/48 set up, will the 108 link chain work on a 00' kdx 220?
Rebecca N on May 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the 108 chain size will fit on this machine with the sprocket sizes.
I have a 2016 kx450f with a 13/53 ratio. What size of chain do I need?
Gunner T on May 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Where your rear sprocket is 3 teeth bigger than your stock sprocket size you will need to go up 2 teeth on your chain size which will be a 520x116.
I just got around to putting on my new chain, Does It come with a master link? opened the package and theres no master link...
Alex S on Nov 11, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hey Alex, i have been using this chain for 8 years great chain and the best value out there. All my boxes have had a master link in the box. Sounds like human error and you drew the lucky (or unlucky) box. I always make sure I have a spare master link in my tool pack. Chuck. Colorado KT 300.
Was told o/x ring chain will rob power from a 125 2 stroke. Any truth to this?
michael a on Feb 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Technically, the sealed chains do have a little more friction than the non-sealed chains. Will you notice it? Probably not. If your a trail rider, the ease of maintenance on the sealed chains is probably worth it.
Hello, this 520x108 chain for my wr250r with 14/49 tooth gear setup is too short of length. How would I add a couple links to my chain and where to buy the couple links?
A shopper on Nov 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I personally would not do that you'll have two master links to close together tried it before did not work I will just get a longer chain from Rocky Mountain Enter an answer to this question.
Will this be long enough for 13/51 on 2013 crf450r if not what size should I run on sprocket size?
CLAYTON L on Mar 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: If you are u sure of chain length needed just order the longest size available then cut to length. The risk of buying too short of a chain is not worth the couple dollars you'd save.

Write down what your final length is after cutting then you'll know what to buy next time.
I have a 2004 suzuki z400 with 13/40 will this work?
trey b on Dec 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: i know that stock is around 96 links i always buy longer and cut to fit, maybe 110 link. i run this chain on my sons bike and mine it barely stretches at all and last a long time highly recommend this chain, the best for the money
What length chain do I need for 13/50 gearing on a 2018 CRF450R?
John R on Jul 18, 2018
BEST ANSWER: You should be promoted to add your bike into the system to help you get the right size. The length will be determined by the user at installation. Meaning you will remove the links you don’t need. I only had one option for length, and it was plenty long.
Will this primary drive 520 orh xring chain fit my yz250 without rubbing?
A shopper on Jul 19, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Its not the brand that dictates rubbing, its the size. You’re a 250 2 stroke so it came stock with a 520 chain, if you get a 520 chain it will run the same as a stock one. The sizes are numbers like 420, 520, 530 ect. Get a stock size but different brand and it will be just fine. Every chain will rub in the rear chain guide, thats normal.
If you have a CRF450R you may need part # 1006590001 to space the front sprocket outward?
Ryan S on May 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: When using a 520 o-ring chain a counter shaft spacer is needed.
I've heard that these o-ring style chains wear more quickly in the dunes. Is this true? If so what other chain would you recommend for my ltr 450?
Dylan B on Feb 21, 2018
BEST ANSWER: If anything the o ring chain would last longer with proper maintenance!
It says it fits a 2012 KX450f but will it rub the engine case. do I need a spacer. ?
Joseph K on Aug 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: nah dude, youll be good. send it.
I have a 14/49 sprocket set up on my 2012 kx450f will this chain work?
Payton L on Sep 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This chain will work. Your chain size is a 520x114.
I am following the video with my 2015 CRF230f. With the 14/48 set up which size chain should I order?
Brandon W on Oct 24, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The chain size you'll need is 520x110
2013 crf450r and i want to go up to a 51 tooth sprocket what chain size and chain would you suggest?
Keenan C on Sep 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Most bikes will have a 3 to 4 tooth option. Your owners manual will give you the specs. I prefer to keep my sprockets and chain a set match. Being a weekend rider I have changed the sprockets twice and the chain once. When I used the mictomiter to check it before and after two rides it was only 3 thousands of an inch. It also will very to riding style. The 520 chain should work for your increase of one more tooth. Hope this helps.
Can I get a spare master link for primary drive gold x ring chain?
A shopper on Sep 18, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the part number for the master link is 1021240021.
Is this a O-ring chain?
Trevor M on Aug 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Its a X-Ring Chain. X-Ring Chains are very similar to O-rings.
Just to verify, My stock Wr250r came with a 13 tooth in the front and a 43 tooth in the rear with a 520x108 Chain. Im upgrading my sprocket sizes to 14 in the front and a 50 tooth in the rear, should I be getting a chain that is 520x124? The Wr is also known for the chain scraping the swing arm, I just want to make sure I am getting the right sizes for everything. Thanks!
Sean S on Jun 24, 2018
BEST ANSWER: If you are going put on 14T,50T You will need a chain that is 116.
I have a 15 crf450r with 14/52 sprockets. Will a 520 120 link chain be long enough? Or what length chain should I get?
Alex P on Jun 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: For every 2 teeth added you need to add 2 links. Your stock machine had a 13/48 with a 520x116. You added 5 teeth so you will need a 520x122 chain.
I have a 09 KTM EXC 530 NOT SURE what stock gears are but I have 14/43 what chain size do I need??? N if I want more beginning power what gears do I get n chain size...not looking for top end speed but more starting out for like on hills??? Thanks
Jerry K on May 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Stock gearing is 15/45. The higher the number in the rear sprocket the more bottom end. The higher the number in the front sprocket the higher the top end. Every two teeth being added you will need 2 links. For example if adding 4 teeth you will need to add 4 links, if adding 3 teeth you will need 2 links (chain adjustment). Hopefully this helps.
What size chain do I need if I run a 14 front and 50 rear?
jeremiah j on May 14, 2018

I have a KTM 250SX 2013 I think I need a 520x120 is that correct?
francisco c on May 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: If you still have your stock gearing of 13t/48t then you'll need a 520x116 chain.
I have a 2016 ktm 350 xcf and my gear ratio is 14x52, what chain will I need?
Gabriel M on Feb 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Your stock gearing is 14x50 which calls for a 520x118 chain. Going up two teeth on the rear requires you to go up on the chain 2 links. For 14x52 you will need a 520x120 chain.
I have a 2015 Wr250r. The stock set up is 13/43 and was looking at going with 14/47. What size chain would I need? I think the stock chain is 520x108.
Corey J on Feb 15, 2018
BEST ANSWER: 13+43= 56
14+47=61
61-56=5
108+5=113
this is how you calculate chain sizes. so you would need a 520x113
2003 kx 125 12/51. Will the 110 stock length still be correct? Stock gear is 13/51
michael a on Feb 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: yes that will be fine.
I have a Honda crf 250L I want to put a 12 tooth sprocket on front and a 45 tooth on the rear. I'd like to know about what length of chain do I need?
A shopper on Jan 29, 2018
BEST ANSWER: for every 2 teeth you change you adjust your chain 2 links. so if stock is 14T and 40T 14+40 would be 54. so you want 12+45 is 57. so that is a 3 link difference. so you would need 2 links longer. so your stock chain size is 106 you would need a 108. i hope this helped.
