I got the X-ring PU chain and sprockets. Not bad at all. Steel is the way to go with 4 strokes. The chain is holding up well. Price is good and so is availability. Only downside is that the sideplates rust quicker than the pricier chains.

I'm running the stock chain with the Ironman 13T on the front and a 50T Primary Drive on the rear. Definately go with steel sprockets.

Ditto on that. Aluminum is for beer cans.

I run the Part Unlimited o-ring chain on my 650 with good results. I noticed when I bought it that the tensile stength was up there with the higher end chains and with it being an o-ring chain I figured I would give it a try. Probably has over 1000 miles on it now with need of and occasional adjustment, though not bad. I run the 14t Moose front sprocket with the stock 45t out back off road and the 15t front for road trips.:cry:

For what it is worth I run the D.I.D. X-ring chain on my CRF 450 and am very pleased with it also. They were just a little more money, and were highly recomended here on TT so I went with that one on my new bike. :cry:
