wouldnt you be better off with a standard DID for the same price?

If I was going 2 go that wrought, then I think I would spend the extra and find a DID o-ring chain for a good price...or go 2 a shop and get a discount on one... I was browsing eBay and saw this x-ring (normally over 100 bucks)...its backed by a 1 year warranty, and its just a chain... How bad could it be???

I'm not a big fan of the non-rivet master link though.

How many do you need?

For F4i OEM sprockets 16/46, you need a 108 link chain.

I bought my chain off eBay X-ring different than the one your looking at. Had to cut it cause it was a 120 link. Happy with final product kinda wish I would have got the gold chain though.

I bought an ebay 525 couple years ago. It sheared a pin after about 2weeks and a few hundred miles during a full throttle upshift from 2nd to 3rd. I was beyond lucky that it shot threw the countershaft sprocket cover and onto the road instead of jamming up something like the rear wheel or breaking something as it went. You are playing with your life if you buy one IMO. And for the record the clip masterlink was still attached correctly when I recoverd the chain.
