I replaced mine on my 450 at 6500 miles of tight single track (lot's of hours)
It was stretched for sure but otherwise fine.

The 1200 miles is only a guess,from what the previous owner told me and what I've put on it. It was noisy when I got it, went out to start it one day and died,couldn't restart it. Long story but found cams out of sync,adjuster for chain was maxed out.I talked to a couple guys we agreed chain shouldn't have stretched,put it all back together,tried to start it chain jumped and cams out again.
Well my guess is it has alot more than 1200 miles on it if it's that stretched.
You can replace it every year or two depending on how hard and much you ride.
My 07's OEM chain is only $13, too bad the older ones are that much more expensive.
