    My local Yamaha dealer wants $91 for an O ring chain for my 2009 TW200.

    That's not that bad depending on the manufacturer.



    Otherwise, eBay...

    *With 130 links you may need to cut it to length, depending on your gearing.

    O-ring chains aren't cheap. Your dealer is about $30 high. Try an independent shop or google 428 o-ring chain.

    That's pretty reasonable for a dealer, aka a stealership



    Dennis Kirk has them for ~$93.

    Motorcycle Superstore for ~$89.

    Bike Bandit for ~ $99.

    Sheesh, the prices have gone up $5-10 over the past couple months. Good thing the government claims there's no inflation.

    Find an independent bike shop that will look at you as a person. Chances are if you show them that you can get the chain for a reasonable price on the web, they will try to come close or explain why not. Most importantly, they will be there when you need help on this or some future problem. I like bargains, but I also like having good technical support or general knowledge when I need it locally. Even my local Kawasaki dealer will cut prices when I show him I can get it cheaper on the web. They need to make a profit, just not as big a profit as standard retail normally provides. During a recent tire purchase my local shop guy could not beat MCsuperstore, but said he'd still mount the tires for an extra $5 because I bought them outside his shop. Worked for me. JMHO. Tom

    I got mine off ebay for 70 something ish, lytle racing group.com was the seller. Luckily my tdub only had 50 miles on it at the time, so didn't have to change sprockets along with it.

    I got a DID o-ring chain for either 69 or 64 on amazon. It was a 124 link iirc so you will need to cut 2-4 links depending on sprockets. (stock is 122 link)



    I don't know if DID is the best to get or not but mine kicks ass. I've put 2600 miles on it with no adjustments at all yet. With the cheap 20$ chain it needed an adjustment after just one 50- mile ride, and it was about out of adjustment room after 2-3k miles.

    2006 CBR1000RR

    2007 CB919 - 70k Miles and still runs like new!

    * 2001 TW200 (Sold after 15k miles of fun)
