I'm looking to buy a new timing chain for my 08 yz45f. I usuallybdo my shopping onbrocky mountain atv and when I did the "machins specific" search for timing chains it came up with the Hot Cams chain and the Pro X chain. I was hoping someone on here with experience could tell me
which timimg chain would be the best to buy. Your input is greatly appreciated!!

The $60 ProX chain is a Borg-Warner Japan product.  The $20 OEM chain is a Borg-Warner Japan product.  If you simply have $40 that you don't want, send it to me instead and buy the OEM chain.
