A good chain for my bike

Hey guys I just got my R and I'm looking for a really good gold chain.
Which one you recommend and what size. Also a website to get it.

Thanks a lot!

I found one here...
http://www.amazon.com/DID-520ERV3-12...=did+520+chain

Is this chain good for street use? Or should I look for something else?

On stuff like that you can order from your dealer or
Motowheels
Sportbiketrackgear
Revzilla
Etc

Also if you do the 520 get the rear and front sprocket

that chain is only rated to 750cc.

If you don't want to change sprockets you'll want a 525 chain.

I like the did x-ring chains. By DID site this is the size you should use:

Amazon.com: DID 525ZVMXG-110 Gold X-Ring Chain with Connecting Link: Automotive

chain specs.
D.I.D Racing Chains and DirtStarŪ Rims


It comes 110 links so you'll need to cut the chain to length.

Ok, thank you!
520 zvm-x I don't need to change the rear and front sprocket, right?
Why the other guys are saying the other one will be better?

With a 520 chain you will need to change sprockets to suit.

The original chain is a 525, with sprockets to suit.
For street riding a 525 will be a better solution. Unless one wants to replace chains quite often.

I assume 525 refers to the length of the chain?

what length is needed for an 1199 with a Ducati 41T?
