Details

    The Renthal 520 R-1 Works Chain is designed specifically with racing applications in mind. With the shot peened link plates giving the chain a 7,644 pound tensile strength, it’ll handle every bit of power when you pin the throttle. Longevity is taken care of by the chromized pins and corrosion-resistant gold finish that everybody loves. Chamfered inner-links keep the chain on the sprocket and prevent hop-offs, and with pre-formed bushings that extend between plates to reduce friction, the R-1 Works Chain won’t have a problem keeping your back tire spinning.

    Specs:
  • Unsealed, non-o-ring design
  • Master link included
  • Gold corrosion-resistant finish
  • Designed for racing applications
  • Pre-formed, friction reducing bushings
  • Shot peened link-plates
  • 7,644 pound tensile strength
  • Chamfered inner-links
  • Chromized, corrosion resistant pins
  • A Perfect match for Renthal sprockets

Great Chain
As good as any of the top tier mx chains. I buy this one because it good safe durable chain. But the main reason I buy this one is its the only one that comes in 114 link which means I do not have deal with cutting. All the others are 120 link

Great quality chain and it comes pre greased. After 10hrs of use seems to wear evenly. I got it at discount during the Black Friday sales, can’t beat RMATV prices anywhere

Excellent chain
This is an excellent chain that is equal to any other high end chain out there. Looks good with the gold plating. Never had any problems with this chain and has a good wear rate.

Great chain.
Ordered the R1 Works chain 520 x 120L and ended up using 116 with a 14/49 ratio on my '17 150. Quick install and had no issue breaking the chain with a generic chain breaker I picked up from my local hardware store. Watch the tension after your first couple rides to see if your chain stretches at all. (This is normal)

my bike calls for a 520x118 will a 520x116 or 520x120 work?
A shopper on Jun 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The second number in these simply designates the number of links in the chain. If you have your old chain you could count the links in it to see if one of the shorter ones would work. One thing to keep in mind is a new chain will be slightly shorter. It's normal for these chains to stretch some.
Do I need a “chain press tool” to put on the side plate on the master link for this chain?
Keith K on May 15, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No you don’t, simply just slips on than add the master clip and you’re good to go
