    New Chain

    Hey guys,

    Which chain I should buy fro my beloved TW?
    I read online about O ring, X ring and no Ring
    Some say that O and X rings make your bike exspecially if not so powerful, lose some power due to increased friction via the rings
    I would like to purchase a DID chain, which exact model I should buy?

    Really up to you which is better because there will be a million opinions out there.
    If you are running the stocker it's is a "no ring" DID. The cheapest one Yamaha could buy.

    I went with the DID 428VX:

    No matter which/what you choose if you have actually worn you chain done to nothingness you might want to do a close inspection of your sprockets (both) as well.

    I put on an X ring. Supposed to be less parasitic drag while being equally long lasting. 122 links for stock.

    This 428VX is an X-Ring right?

    Comparing the X-Ring and the no ring at all chain, how is different the lubrication?

    Jannaruto,

    Side question: the member map shows you in Singapore. Do you ride off road, and if so, where do you find areas in an urbanized city-state?
    God made mud. God got lonesome. So God said to some of the mud, "Sit up!" "See all I've made," said God, "The hills, the sea, the sky, the stars." And I was some of the mud that got to sit up and look around. Lucky me, lucky mud. I, mud, sat up and saw what a nice job God had done.

    I put an o ring on my TW and could not detect any power loss.

    No I am not saying that is mandatory but reading here and there and knowing how friction works is easy to assume that, if you put an oring somewhere there should be an increase in friction somewhere, that's why I am asking since, I don't know if you know my other threads, I really care about my bike top speed since I even reached 130kmh constantly across multiple runs, being the engine very very low powered anything could make it loss that small amount of power it has, like I changed my exhaust, bang lost 15-20kmh, the chain of course will not have that effect but I don't want to create another point of "loss"

    P.S. the exhaust will be modified in the future to re-gain that powerloss in top end
