Is there a break in period for chains? I know they stretch a bit in the first 500 miles but do I have to take it easy on the chain for that time too? Reason I'm asking is I'm going to the track tomorrow and I want to change my chain today. Its about a 200km (120miles?) ride to the track. Will this be enough?

Never really thought about it. However, I think that a few 'sighting' laps would be a good idea to make sure that everything is ok.

thanks guys, I went anyway, (it was the dragstrip by the way) that's all that's open so far. First time out, ran a 12.07 on a very slippery track. No problem with the chain. I just had to adjust it when I got there.
