New chain cost info?

Time for a new chain and I was thinking about the new DID 530ZVM2 gold chain. It's probably overkill for a 94 900RR, but I might as well go big.

I have seen it online for $144.95, anybody know whre to get it cheeper?

I edited my post as I had it listed as a 525ZVM2, but it turn out I need a 530.

thats about the cheapest your going to find it. Dealer cost from Parts Unlimited is only $122. So your at like cost+20% which is a smoken deal.

Re: New chain cost info?

When I replace my chain I also replace the sprockets. You can get good package deals from Cal-sportbike w/ a fireblade discount. I got a DIDERV520 w/ AFAM sprockets for around $200.

Re: New chain cost info?

Yep getting the sprockets as well. Found the chain at White Buffalo Racing for under $130... That seems real good!

No the question is alloy or steel rear sprocket?

If you don't race and are looking for longevity, stick with steel. What about chrome molly, thoughts?

Look, lean, believe!!
