I was lookin at new chains and many of them say up to 1100cc or 1000cc. So with mine being an 1100, I couldn't build it anymore because the chain couldn't handle it or what? Or is that just the marketing info, not really realistic?

You can go down to a 520 chain but I like the security of the 530 Tsubaki is a good chain, also make sure you get a "O" ring chain, they keep the chain lube in place and the chain will last longer.

What Bobby said. I went for the EK chain that was using a Hayabusa as a marketing mule. I also do NOT go the 520 route, though it can be done within a 'spec'. I just want my spec to be a lot higher....:D

Yeah what Bobby said...530 is probably the best compromise (O-ring as a minimum, x-ring as a preference). Am using a DID at the minute, but as soon as that stretches out, I'll probably go for an Iris.
