    Was looking at my new to me TW200 today, and noticed the chain is stamped D.I.D 428, is that a stock chain, it does have a 47 tooth sprocket, so fingers crossed that it is aftermarket!

    I think the stock chain is manufactured by DID, as well. Check if it has o-rings and that'll determine if its stock junk or not.

    Be nice if it was, saves you 70$ and it should easily last 20k miles at the least. Might even outlive the bike! My O-ring chain & sprockets are at 4,500 miles now and all are still like new, in function at least. Chain looks a little dirty cosmetically but it's still fine!



    If it the stock chain, may as well run it until it's wasted and get yourself a whole new drive system - 14/47 sprockets if you're mainly using the TW for street riding, and a nice O-ring chain. Whole package shouldn't cost you more than 100$.

    The 47 tooth sprocket would make me think it's aftermarket, but without being able to see it . . . . . it should be easy to see if it's o-ring or not, if so, you scored.

    D.I.D. makes about a dozen different chains in 428. Some good, some great, some suck.

    428 V o-ring chains: 130, 124, 122 links? I am getting new sprockets, 14/47,48 or 49. I've read the older models run 14/49? I have a 2010 that i'd like to run at a little lower rpm at 65-70mph and to possibly make it through an intersection in first gear after a red light. What length do I need?

    Whatever fits. Stock length is given as 120 or 122 links. 120 fits those TWs that came with 14/45 sprockets installed in some markets. 122 fits those TWs that came with 14/50 sprockets installed in other markets. Different OEM sprockets explains the different chain lengths. It has been reported that 122 links fits 14/47 sprockets just fine.

    Is KMC a good brand? I found a few on ebay for $40 + $8 s/h but they are gold. Or should I just bite the bullet and buy a DID for twice that?

    Their HG series is 5,000 lbs., which is right up there with some of the best. Never tried one:

    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.
