I've never heard of D.I.D's silent chain but why don't you give it a try and let us know if it makes a difference.

I thought the Yamaha OEM chain was the only chain available?

OEM chains have been fine so you can't go wrong with one of those, Feel free to drop $80 if you like but please let us know how it works if you do.
