I was thinking of going with the D.I.D. 520ERV3 Gold X'ring Race Chain. I currently have an RK 520 X-ring chain. However, I was told that I would get a little more power to the rear wheel with the DID. Do you guys have any suggestions? Also, just how easy is it to replace the chain. I was thinking of buying the little pocket chain breaker and riveter that MotionPro makes and doing it myself.

i agree ., ID or RK., just as good., no extra power thats for sure., but a good sales pitch., LOL

I'm on a DID ERV2 520 on my GSXR 600 and love it. My R6 track bike has a RK GB520 XSO chain. Comparing specs from both DID and RK, the RK had more tensile strength. Either way both DID and RK are both respectable companies with good products.

if you want more power to thr rear, take an ice pick and take all the O rings out of the chain. cuts down on the chain life but offers less restriction

Hey actually it was an instructor with MMI (via Orlando, FL). And I think I worded that incorrectly. He wasn't necessarily comparing RK to DID, instead he was comparing the RK that is currently on my bike (which has had better days), with a new DID 520ERV3. So I guess I'll be going with the DID. As for breaking the chain I see sooo many different options. What's the best to go with. The kits for around $100 that come with the chain breaker and riveting tool. Let me know.

Hey Wiz...What's a good one? Better yet, which type do you have now?
www.streetandcomp.com They have an EK chain tool that is serious rig. I have done 5 chains with it and it shows no signs of wear. I have broken a motion pro tool before. I don't think they show it on their web so you will have to call.
