I like DID they make a x-ring "gold" chain. its one of there best. They do have some chains better but they are made for motocross where they would be replaced often. The x-ring vm gold seems to be a compromise between strenght and durability.

I had one on my cr250 so I'm not sure if you can get it for your quad but I'm sure its the same thing.

I put one of these on a couple weeks ago and it seems to be a good chain.

Non o-ring chains are what some racers, run. From what these same racers have studied, the o-rings actually rob horse power.

Sidewinder has a seriously high tensile strength... something like 35k
Sidewinder also makes Stainless Steel, Sprockets! I ran their chain and sprockets on a previous bike and they wore like, no other! Durability is name of the game @ Sidewinder.

i have heard that o-ring chains are not very good in sand because the sand gets into the chain and wears it our quicker. is there any truth to this?

That is not the one I had. I think that one is a set or two above the chain I had. I paid like $100 for mine. I think some of the more expensive chains have more tensile strength and are made more for racing, whereas the one I had was made for durability. I have never heard of these sidewinders but it seems like a lot of people like them, I would go with a chain thats geared toward more durability than one for high HP.

The link you had was for a 530 chain, is that the size chain we run on rappys???

I can get you a good chain. I have a couple options at decent prices.


Yes chains are that much. If you want to be cheap I have $20 chains but they probably wont last.
