Hi,

Went to the dealers to get a new chain and sprocket set. I had my mind set on RK 520XSO but dealer didn't want to sell me that, said they recently broke a couple of RK MX chains in newzealand (I have to add this happened while training for MX1 world championship and does i no way resemble my skillset), and also have had trouble with breaking them on the roadrace/roadbikes they sell - they said I could have DID 520V at same price, which I did not knowing any better.

Comparing the specs of the 520V and the 520XSO, seams like the 520V is a little wimpy for my 250 two stroke - but thats just paper anyway, do any of you have experience with either in a similar setup ?

Thank you mmz77. Do you use your chain for MX or trail ?

I went to the dealer today with the DID specification chart. They said the 520V chain was their wrong, and gave me the 520VM chain instead.

I ride all woods and never had a problem. MX shouldn't be any different due to the fact I'm on the throttle constantly in the field. :cool:
