    RK’s 520EXW XW-Ring Chain is the simple, fool proof answer to your motorcycle or ATV chain questions. The 520EXW’s metal components are made from a specialized high carbon steel alloy that is shot peened, heat treated, and pre-stretched to create a chain that lasts for an incredibly long time. So tough in fact that it will outlast other 520 chains by 10%.

    Another factor that makes the EXW such a long wearing chain is the unique design of the XW-Ring which closes off the chain rollers with an additional sealing surface that helps retain more lubricant compared to traditional O-ring seals. Not only will it last long, but with an 8,500 pound tensile strength, RK has made this chain strong enough for any off-road application with a 750cc displacement or less.
    When you need a chain that is packed with features to keep it going mile after mile, snag the RK 520EXW XW-Ring Chain for a no-nonsense performer.

    Specs:
  • Sealed XW-ring design
  • Includes clip type master link
  • XW-Ring has additional sealing surface
  • Chain is shoot peened, pre-stressed, and heat treated
  • 10% longer wearing than other 520 chains
  • 8,500 pound tensile strength
  • Recommended 750cc limit for dirt applications
  • Chain material is high carbon alloy steel

Awesome chain!
This is a great chain. I have a Suzuki 250 and this is the best chain I have found. I would definitely recommend it.

Chain chain
Rocks on my two stroke. Reduces brake fade, rider weight, cougar to young'n ratios and over all preferred by them old guys with the kx 500s. Once one of them told me so.

Holds up forever
I ran this on my bike for about two years and it just now is showing signs of wear. Cant beat that longevity on this style of chain.

RK XW-Ring Chain
These chains are awesome. I'm on my fourth or fifth one and I usually get about 150 hours out of them. They could probably go longer but the o-rings start to get pretty dried out. Never had one break. Installing masterlink takes a trick or two but what o-ring masterlink doesn't?

Good Chain.
Great chain. When paired with front and rear steel sprockets it should last a long time.

Woods riders will want this chain!
East/Mid Atlantic woods riders should try this one out.
They last forever as long as you clean with the hose or pressure washer after each ride and then hit with some Lube after it dries.
I ride all year including the winter with studs and routinely get 1 to 2 years out of these chains and my Supersprox steel rear sprockets with a couple front sprocket changes during that time. Western PA muck is rough on chains but this one is a winner!

One tough chain
I gave this chain a try to see how long it would last on some of our local sand tracks and this thing has been very good, it hasn't stretched one bit. The rolling resistance is quite a bit more than a normal 520 chain but that's to be expected.

Great chain for a big bike
These chains seem to last a long time. we put them on several 450 bikes and 300 stw strokes. they have a great tensile strength, and wear very very well. The x rings touch the plates in two spots where an Oring only touches in one. they keep the factory grease in and the dirt out. I only oil the chain to keep it from rusting on the outside. they do not seem to kink like a lot of chains do. NEVER use a power washer in the chain area though. we clean the bike with a simple water hose, a bucket of soapy water and brushes 99% of the time.

RK is my choice
I have used others and let me tell you these chains take abuse, Ive bought 3 now from RK, No other brand made me think like hey let me buy that chain again, it was always like well i guess ill try a different brand now. Not anymore ive found my chain brand. This is worth it. When your riding hard in hard conditions for long hours you need a chain that will take the abuse from the sand,mud, water etc. and this my friends takes it for a long time.
