Renthal o-ring chains

On this used 03' yz450 I bought, the renthal chain has o-rings that look dried and cracked. The whole chain looks dry and probably hasnt seen a good oiling lately. Can I bring the o-rings and chain back to life or is this chain shot to hell?

give it some oil and try it,i use 3 fingers off the swing arm 2 the chain and it should be tight 2 ur index finger if its wanked get a new 1 soon

Run it until the links start to kink. :D

judging a chain by when the links start to kink is not a good thing. My Regina O-Ring (Renthal) kinked the links when new...and then when broken in it was fine.

If you can see the o-rings are cracked...go ahead and replace it.
