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 ORH Gold X-Ring Chain

    JEFF in CA

    really impressed

    Got this chain to replace my existing RK X-ring. Have put about 10 hours of moto and hare scrambles on it and am highly impressed. I maintain my chains well and they are always adjusted to correct specs. This chain got one very small adjustment after the first hour of riding and it hasn't changed since. It has been through some serious rocks and performs like a champ. The master link fit correctly and was easy to install. This is the only chain I will ever purchase from now on. It is a truly excellent value and matches well with the Primary Drive brand sprockets.

  • DID 520 Chain

    DID 520 Chain

    xavier in QC

    Std chain 520 x 106

    This chain has no o-rings and is delivered with a clip-type master-link. I will install a rivet-type master-link asap. I will also take care not "sitting on the chain" i.e. verify tension with you seating on the bike, not when up on side-stand. There is a lot of difference. TECH NOTE: We recommend following the manufacturer specified chain adjustment procedure.
