Re: What type of DID chain do I have???

Not sure what you're asking. Are you asking if they're 520 or 530 sized? If stock, it's a 530 size.

Any way to tell if the sprockets are stock? No extra holes, no colors, etc.

Should also be stamped on the sprocket itself.

Yes, you can measure the chain or sprockets....

530
3/8" wide rollers on the chain
0.343" thick sprockets

520
1/4" wide rollers on the chain
0.227" thick sprockets

My AFAM sprocket had 520 stamped on it, I thought the stock ones did as well. Maybe I'm wrong. Do what Baketech suggested, whip out the measuring tape and you'll know for sure.

Well, tape didn't lie I guess...

3/8" wide rollers....

That mean it's a 530.....

Thanks again for your help Baketech and all who assisted..
