I had an the Regina ORN6 on my YZ426 and it was unreal. After the initial ride I adjusted it once in 6 months (riding every weekend).

Yeah, I know thats why Im buying one, I heard they don't rub agianst frame, cases, and are strong as hell! Just wash bike, lube, and its good.

I was just unsure which one, the ORN6 or this other one, the other one is more money, but I was unsure which one Gray said to get. Oh, the YZ450F is a 520x114 right? Or can I go 520x120 and just cut some links, don't matter?

Thanks.

The Regina ORN6 is the one.

"Cutting" them can be a problem, though. O-ring chains really should be supported by the outer plate on the side opposite that where you're pushing the pin from. This requires an exceptionally strong pin press type of chain breaker such as the #805330 on This Page. This type pushes the pins out of both outer plates at once. Motion Pro makes one, but if you don't grind the pins down to the plate, it isn't anywhere near strong enough. Not even close.

What I do is to use the type 1 breaker, #805000, on the same page. The downside is that it pulls the inner plate part way out on the pin bushing, and the link has to be pressed back together with the same sort of tool you'll need to assemble the master link. It works out OK. If it seems like too much, have a shop install it. It'll be the last time your chain has to be removed for quite a while.

Okay thanks guys. One last question, if I get 114 link will I not have to cut any links off, and just put it on and ride? And no thanks on the offer, Im buying a lot of other things for the bike at the same time, so I want to order it all new and through this site.

Thanks.

If you stick with the stock gearing....just put the 114 on and ride.

114 links...but you can use a breaker and get the 120.

That's what I do...
