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 520 ORM O-Ring Chain

    Primary Drive 520 ORM O-Ring Chain

    Aaron in NV

    wide chain

    I have not ridden my bike with this chain yet and, I'm not sure anyone else reviewing this product had the same problem but, this is a very wide chain. It's almost three mm wider than the chain I removed and is causing really bad friction on the chain guide. I'm sure after a couple rides it will wear down the guide so it will become less noticeable. However, it's bad enough where I think I will definitely notice it riding. If I were trying to go out and finish well in a race, and I'm not, I would probably return this chain. It takes a lot of effort to turn my wheel by hand. Other than that, it does seem like it is and will be a reliable product.

    Primary Drive 520 RDO O-Ring Chain

    Very impressed with this chain, has not needed adjusting since the first couple rides. About 30 hrs on it so far, MX only, will probably last another 20 at least. I will get their X-ring chain next time, less rolling resistance. Very good value from Primary Drive.
