    Looking to replace the oem one now after 20k miles, just looking in the net and some sites are saying a did heavy duty one but others are saying an extreme chain, any one know if the heavy duty one is up to the job? Or have a recommendation ?

    You can't go wrong with a DID chain of any description.


    Race proven and fitted from the factory by a lot of OEM's.

    Does it need replacement yet? You should get 30k + from the original.

    I had aftermarket chain and lasted a fraction of time of original

    I have the Renthal gold sprocket and DID gold x ring heavy duty chain and they came very highly recommended but it's a buyers market out there for choice
