    Best chain to get

    My OEM chain lasted nearly 30,000 miles. My replacement DID lasted 17,000 miles. I'd like to get a chain that lasts as lonmg as the OEM chain. What's the best chain to get? Wish I could recall the OEM brand. This is for a 2001 ZX9R

    I have had good results with

    EK X Ring

    Also look at countershaft sprocket where wear occurs

    If you went a tooth smaller that alone would do it

    I did a little digging and found out the OEM chain was an EK so I bought an EK X-ring.

    My sprockets are stock sized.

    also if you are only changing the chain you wont get the same milage out of said chain with used sprockets.
