Anyone have any ideas to help this chain be looser? It is still very stiff after months of riding.
I can't import chain lubes and so just buy whatever o-ring spray chain lube is available.
When looking at it from the side many links are still in a bent position having not straightened out after rolling off the sprocket.
Can it be soaked in ATF or something?
I think its a DID chain.

Take it back...

If it was defective from the factory, I would take it back to the dealer or contact a rep. from DID.

My old Sidewinder, and my current RK were both a little stiff, but they would move more than enough to go around sprockets...
