Hey Indy WR450, 5,000 Miles! what the, you gotta be single and have no job. Thats an amazing amount of dirt riding. Do you race a lot or just play a lot?

I just checked my bike and it also has the D.I.D 520-vm X-ring chain. Why would some bikes come with it and others not? Does Yamaha supply the chain or does the dealer do this when they assemble the bike? I can't say this bums me out!

I haven't had any problems. In fact I have been amazed at how little the chain stretches. It loosened up a bit around 35 miles or so. I adjusted it and haven't had to touch it since (~ 200 miles on the bike now). :)
