|Effe||It is always much better/safer to change the whole set rather than only chain or sprockets...|

Go for the stock sprockets (damn good stuff) and a D.I.D. chain.
LDH, get in here and fix this guy up with Da Kine set up, damnit!!!!!!
OOPS should have read the entire thread!!!!!!!!
Done, done and done!!!!!!!!!!!!

|HondaCrazy||what did you go with?|

|borninusa||I talked to LDH...bought the set from him..and its installed|

|HondaCrazy||I have been looking at the same set, might as well get the best if it is not that much more...I just need to decide on 17/44 vs 16/43 and 520 vs 530...|

The DID 530 is the way to go. They ain't no $225 either.
*EDIT* sorry, $225 for the chain and sprockets.
$141 from here. Chain only
D.I.D. 530VM Gold X'ring Sealed Street Chain (Rated To 1000cc's) Sprocket Center
$195 for the set
Or better yet, PM LDH for a set.
If you want to do it right, it'll cost.

|Cotten Mouth Chris||go with the ldh chain and sprocket set you wont regret it|

Last question (well, hopefully last one).
I am not sure if I want to spend $225 on a chain (you know how wives are at times). I am sure that particular chain is high quality and a great price...but is there a cheaper option that is still of quality..another brand?
|09-05-2011 12:48 PM|
|borninusa||Whoops..sorry about that last question. I see the answer I need above.|

If you look on his thread, I think there are 4 options. I am so not the mechanical type guy I dont have a clue.

|The Shadow||Or, check out LDH's thread, just do a search for 919 17/44 and you will find it... DID520 ZVM 520 chain and sprockets, $225 shipped.|

If you're going to replace the chain you should also replace the sprockets , you can get a complete set (cut to length)here
RC-51 00-06 Sprocket Center
I've bought from them before ,fast shipping and good costumer sevice

|Toast||Check out your sprockets and see if they need replacing as well. Hopefully they won't...so you wouldn't need the chain and sprocket set, just a chain.|

Would this be what I am looking for? Good price or no?

I have a 2002 919 and I am in need of replacing the chain. I bought the bike used and it now has 13000 miles on it. I think its the original chain and according to the chain guide...its darn near the end.
So I would like to replace the chain. The thing is, I have never bought one. The last couple of bikes I have owned have been shaft drive.
What chain do I need to get? Options I am looking for and websites (if anyone has a good one)
