D.I.D 525 ZVMX X-Ring Gold Chain - 120 Links:

D.I.D's engineers are continuously improving chain designs in order to handle the tremendous horsepower loads of today's high performance motorcycles. In developing the new DID ZVM-X series, D.I.D focused on "Rigidity." Traditionally, "Tensile Strength" has been the bench-mark to indicate overall strength, but tensile strength is only a laboratory static measurement of a chain's fracture point. Rigidity, on the other hand, is the ability of a chain to withstand the forces that occur in the real world that riders experience. Increased rigidity means better power transfer from the engine to the ground, greater resistance to stretching under load, and overall improved performance that meets the demands of the current high-power bikes and the people who ride them.

  • Increased rigidity for better power transfer and greater resistance to stretching under load.
  • Overall improved performance that meet the demands of the current high-power bikes.
  • Designed to meet requirements of machines bigger than 1000cc.
  • Same excellent characteristics of the ZVM chains, but its new X2-ring design provides 40 percent greater wear resistance and better overall chain life.
  • Average tensile strength of 10,408 pounds.
  • Wear life index: 4000.
  • For use on Superbikes; maximum rated displacement 1300cc.
  • Weight (per 100 links): 4.65 pounds.
  • Includes a rivet-style master link.
  • 120 links.

Sunstar 525 RDG DualGuard Sealed Chain - 120 Links:

Sunstar's heavy duty, street motorcycle chain model is the RDG series (RDG = Road Dual Guard) for 520, 525 and 530 applications. It uses Sunstar's DualGuard sealed ring street bike chain technology where the sealing ring has an 'X' shape - meaning there are two sealing points and two lubrication pools versus the one-sided, single-lip design of a standard O-ring. This sealed ring design type dramatically improves lubricity in high heat conditions while providing lower friction and longer chain life - and it is available for just about every street motorcycle on today's market.

Great Look, Easy Install

I purchased the chain and sprocket kit for my 2006 CBR 600rr. The DID chain looks great compared to my old chain which was binding and shot. The Vortex sprockets went on with no problems. Would recommend for any potential buyer.

Awesome kit! 01SV650

I have an 01 Sv650s and this kit worked out perfectly for me. The vortex sprocket looks good and seems to be holding up well after a couple thousand miles, there is little if any wear. The chain is a beaut and certainly is a good tough chain for the 650cc, I deff trust it over the stock one. Fairly easy to clean and maintain with brush and kerosene. SEEMS as it may be a little heavier than stock but id rather have the strength than a wimpy one that can snap.

MotoSport Staff
Over 7 months ago Location: Portland, OR, USA
This sprocket kit would work great. Most of the kits shown on our site will will work with your CBR600rr. You are going to be more interested in gearing changes, to make the changes to the acceleration of the bike you require. We have a complete guide to help assist with gearing and sprocket choices which can be viewed here : http://www.motosport.com/blog/the-ultimate-sportbike-and-motorcycle-drive-guide

Chain and sprocket size?
I have a suzuki gsx-r 600 year 2002. What is the best size for this bike? 520 525 525 Front 15 16 17 18 Rear 41 42 43 44 45 46 47 My goal is to get faster acceleration , I do not mind if the top speed is a bit lower . So many option that is why I need an expert advise Cheers

This is more rider preference than anything. If you are looking for more bottom end, or faster acceleration there are a few changes you can make. Chain - Going with the 520 chain will be lighter than a 525 and 530. With a 600cc bike it is still safe to use and will lighten the load on the engine. Gearing - If you are looking for a subtle change, go up 1 or 2 teeth on the rear sprocket from the stock tooth count. If you are looking for more of a drastic change, you could go down 1 tooth from stock on the front sprocket. Changing 1 tooth on the front is about equal to changing 3 on the rear.

Whats the front and rear teeth for a 2001 CBR 600F4i?
If i change the teeth at either the front or rear, will it adjust the speedometer calibration?

Over 4 years ago Location: Portland, OR
16 / 46 It all depends on how much you change it. Yes, changing your gear ratio will change the accuracy of the speedometer.

What is the difference in 520, 525, and 530 chains?
Top 10 Contributor
Over 4 years ago Location: Portland
They are all different widths and are not compatible. Smaller motorcycles use 520 chains and sprockets larger liter bikes use 530 and then some overlap inbetween @ 525. If you don't know what size you need give us a call.

What color is the chain that comes with the kit?
how many teeth are on a stock 08 r6 front sprocket
Top 10 Contributor
Over 4 years ago Location: Portland
The color depends on which chain you pick, most are silver or gold. 45t stock. Go up 2 teeth if you want more torque.
vtwinmaniac Over 4 years ago
Is this chain a GOLD color?
MotoSport Staff
Over 4 years ago Location: Por+land
Since this is a kit it gives you a couple different chains that you can select from so it's hard to tell what chain you are talking about. If you want more information feel free to call one of our sales reps.

How do i determine how many teeth i need on the front and rear sprocket kit for the suzuki gsxr 600, 2006?

Over 5 years ago Location: Portland
If you are looking for the factory gearing, your owners manual should have that information. This bike should have come with 16/43 from the factory.
