I have misplaced my service manual temporarily. Is the stock chain on a 03 WR450 a RK or DID. I need some spare master links and I'm told they are slightly different.

The Stock chain does not have a master link.
You must use a chain breaker to remove it.

The first thing I did was drill and punch out the link and install a master link. Never did like the rivet method. :)

Its a DID 520 VM. Make sure its a x-ring and not the o-ring. The x-ring 'VM' master link is a gold color. The shop first sold me a grey color link cause the stock chain was grey, "idiots".
