I am going to buy a chain and want to know what is the best one to get for the money. I like the looks of a gold one since my bike is yellow, looking to buy from TT.

Also, how do I know it bolt right up to my bike with the stock sprockets, or do I need to take a few links out?

Thanks!!!

This may be wrong, so don't flame me if it is. I have heard that DID and Renthal both make great chains, and I know the chain on my 426 is 120 links I believe on stock sprockets, so it might be the same for the 450, as it seems many bikes use 120 link chains.

I think they should give people a test before they buy bikes... if you can't read the manual you shouldn't be riding a dirt bike.

Oh yeah, if you order a 114 link chain you will be fine with the stock sprockets, if you buy a 120 chain, just have you're shop/dealer take 6 links out, no biggy.

I disagree..buy a chain breaker and do it yourself, very simple.

Well, I bought my chain at my shop, so I told them to take some off...(it's free).

Oh, yeah the Honda dealer I bought it at is cool, I ride with the guy and was going to buy a CRF their too, but I went with a better bike instend. :thumbsup: I buy a lot of stuff from them, as far as Movies, sunglasses, gear, tear-offs, etc...go. I buy all my parts through my Yamaha dealer though (it's a Car dealer, plus a Yamaha dealer), he's really cool...cuts me huge discounts and everything, but they dont have any gear or whatnot so...I guess I could use a chain-breaker, won't hurt to have one. If I ever need some links off Terry (Honda dealer) will take some out for free though, same with Yamaha.

Too lazy to be cheap, I was too lazy to get the master link off the stock chain so I took bolt cutters to it. HAH.

HAHAHA. And I am too cheap to bolt cut a chain, even a cccrrrraaaappppyyyyyyy stock chain. My poor butt might need a back-up chain some day.

Since you are too lazy to be cheap could you buy me a chevy S-10? You know since it is too much work to be cheap. Just think of it as a favor because I am keeping you lazy because you are buying something expensize for me and not cheap. HAHA :thumbsup:
