what is the life/mileage of the OEM to begain with and why replace if not used up?
It depends on a few things, really. It's consumable by nature so no two bikes will wear the same. Riding style, chain adjustment, offroad vs. onroad use.

My experience was that mine was worn enough to warrant replacing as I had it down to the frame for powder coating. At ~13200km the chain had cut over halfway through and the rollers were now dragging. So I replaced it. I wasn't as meticulous as I am now with chain maintenance, and that bike stayed dirty and lived outside so I think I'm probably on the short end of the life span.

It's a real pain to replace because you have to drop the swingarm to do it, so most don't replace them as often as they should be
