Good chain for the price. I have had many rides with it with no real issues other then gold plating getting worn off. No real bad stretching after the first ride.

Primary Drive 520 ORH Gold X Chain
I run this chain on all my bikes for several years. The chain has very minimal stretch for the about two hard rides and that's it. Wash your bike, let it dry, spray WD-40 or another type of oil on the chain to minimize any rust, keep the gold plating looking fresh and it will last for several seasons.

Very good quality, looks great, fits tighter so you will need to readjust your slack preference, but that may be due to chain stretch that I am not used to.

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.
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
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!
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.
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
BEST ANSWER: I would be happy to get this for you. What is the make, model, and year of the machine this is going on? Once I have this information I will be able to further assist you.
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.
Hi. Was going one tooth bigger ON THE back from stock. Do I need a longer chain?
A shopper on Nov 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Most bikes have the adjust ability to compensate a 1 tooth change but its hard to say with out knowing what bike you have.
I have a 2014 yz450F (White/Red) and am looking to pair this chain with a Red 49T Renthal Twin Ring rear Sprocket (only specified that it fit honda?) and a 13T front sprocket. While it seems everything should fit, I just want to be sure.
Hayden R on Oct 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: yi am not sure that it will. we only carry the most popular colors which for honda wold be red and Yamaha is blue. if you know that they are the same and it will fit the you are more then welcome too.

What size of a chain would be needed for a 2010 Yamaha YZ250F? I just bought a 52 teeth rear sprocket.
Ryan N on Jul 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: For your bike, with the stock 13 tooth front sprocket and a 52 tooth rear sprocket, you would need to go with a 520x114 chain.
I have a 2017 Yamaha WR250R. I plan on running a 14 front 49 rear, what size chain is that going to be?
Gary W on Jul 17, 2017

Does anyone know what the width in mm for the Primary Drive 520 ORH Gold X-Ring Chain is? My stock SIZE is 17.8mm and the one i currently have is a 20.5mm and it is rubbing the case.
Vitaliy M on Jul 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The X-ring chains are wider then normal chains due to the rubber o-ring in between the plates. some bikes need a spacers behind the front sprocket to run the X-ring chain. your stock chain will not be an X-ring. Thanks for your question!
2015 Ktm 500exc. Deciding on 14/48 or 14/50. Will 120 chain length work for either option?
Brian S on May 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The 120 chain length will work with the 14/48 tooth. However, if you go with the 14/50 you will need to make your chain a 122. For every two(2) teeth you add to the front or rear sprockets you will need to add 2 links to your stock chain size. With the 50 you'd be going up 5 teeth from your stock size meaning you will need to add 4 links to your stock chain size.
