I just bought a 07 YZ450 and I was wondering what the best chain would be for the money. Should I also change the sprockets also, I am not sure if they are cheap to. Thanks

Dirty Little Secret: The Renthal Gold R1 is actually a Regina ORN-6 with custom outer plates. The Regina is $15-20 cheaper however, and is my favorite. I believe they run freer than the DID chains. I've had the same one on my '03 now for over two years, and it's still OK.

I put one on the '06 the day I got it home last June, and I didn't readjust it for the first time until January. Incredible chain.

If you get the chain on the OEM sprockets before they are worn and damaged by the stock chain, they hold up quite well.

DID's are great. I have a DID 0-ring and love it.

The D.I.D Chains are awesome, the renthals do have a tendency to strecth, they make good sprockets though...:censored:
