DID or EK with o-rings seem to be popular choices here
+1 Just did the 14T front-47T rear with an EK. When the weather clears I'll give the '94 a spin. OM

+2 DID O-ring



Over 4000 miles and no need for adjusting, and no signs of needing it any time soon.



Clean and light oil occasionally to stop surface rust, but mostly just jump on and ride.

Anything is better than stock. Due to the extra costs associated with the outboard countershaft support bearing, it is a good idea to go with a ringed chain of any type or brand.

Might as well change the sprockets, too, unless they are brand new. Otherwise, the new chain will rapidly wear to match how worn the the sprockets already are. If you have a few hundred miles or more on the stock chain, might as well run it as long as it goes, then do the entire set.
