Does anyone know the stock chain or equivalent? Is it a DID V? or VM?

It's one of a kind. It's a staked link from Honda directly. You can make any other chain into one with a new staked link. However, go spend the money on the honda chain again, you won't be dissapointed. Other chains are good, but the honda staked is the best, IMO.

Is the OEM Honda replacement chain exactly like the stocker (staked from the factory).?

Short of paying through the nose for a new Honda staked chain the best option is the DID X-ring. It's like $68 from Rocky Mountain. The XR650 needs and deserves nothing less.

DID X-ring 520VM is a great chain for the 650

For the money, the DID X ring is the way to go and it's a step up from the stock chain. RK also makes a top notch chain.
