What chain types do you guys use or recommend, was thinking of trying H/D instead of 'O'Ring. I use the WR on & off road.

It has been my experience that nothing lasts as long as an o-ring chain. The o-ring does have more drag though. I think most pro motocross guys use non o-ring chains because of this, that & o-ring chains are heavier.

Last year I bought one of those x-ring chains for my street bike. They are claimed to have less drag than o-ring chains. I couldn't really tell much difference.

My stock chain has almost 500 miles on it and it seems to still be stretching. I ve adjusted it twice with in spec, and then after awhile it seems to stretch as I hear the chain slap the swing arm under heavy acceleration. Any one notice the same thing.
