My 650R was bought slightly used in 02. I've been riding the hell out of it now almost everyday since than.

My question is, is the stock chain this O-ring marvel that I have had on it all this time?

Cause if it is, hats off to Honda :devil:

This is a long wearing, high quality chain!

Oh I keep it clean and take good care of my bike. But I've never had a chain perform like this one...

Roger that. I used my OEM chain for several years. It's a DID VM chain. This is what my new chain is. An even better chain is the DID ERV 2 or 3. This is what the Honda Baja teams use.
