The Chain and Sprocket Kit for the '14 DL1000A: 27000-31810.
Try any Suzuki dealer for ordering. The part number is straight out of my '18 Suzuki Genuine Accessories catalog.

Places like Bike Bandit (and many more) have all the parts schematics w/ the associated part numbers available online.

I always just grab aftermarket. RK DID etc for a "o" 'x' whatever chain and then sprockets, usually a steel front as it's turning a bunch faster, and then a hard Aluminum rear. At least price it out... Suzuki list price for a front sprocket is over $50, rear is too, and $212 for a chain...

Chain and sprocket kits at MotoSport are like $150-175 for all 3 parts.... Job is fairly easy with the right tools and some time... a buddy helps too... extra hands....

THE LIST:
99 TL1000R - Blue and White
02 GSX-R1000 - Blue and white
94 RF900R - Black - SOLD to get....
14 DL1000 - Cool tan color!!! WOOT

I just paid 205$ tax in for the suzuki kit. That's canadian money.
I tried to go aftermarket, but it was more expensive.

Also, suzuki canada claimed it was back order, but my dealership had two for the '14 strom 1000.
Always call the dealership, just in case.

I got the hand guards on special too.

Odd. Up here in Canada Suzuki has it on their site for $182. https://www.suzuki.ca/en/node/3597 But the US site only has the 2002 to 2010 https://store.suzukicycles.com/c/par...rive-chain-kit for $199

Aluminum wears faster than steel. No reason for it on a Strom, it's not like it's saving any significant weight!

No one is talking about chain tools. A rivet chain needs to be riveted! You can spend $100+ on the tool or you can take your chances with a cheap Ebay type set, $25ish. Either way a tool is needed even if you just need one to cut the chain to length.

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. 1 Cor 13:13

Yeppers on the tool... and get a decent one... about $50-60. You will usually pay a shop that to do one chain.

I go Aluminum as I found as it wears out, the front steel is usually close too (turns 4 to 5 x faster so more wear) and I always do all three at the same time. A half worn chain on a new sprocket will kill it way faster.

I also like doing my own as I can take my time and make sure I roll the rivets right, and I just like knowing I can do it on the road if I need to.

I usually buy the chain longer and then press out a few links that I can take on trips and also an extra master.

You can rivet the link without a special tool, and as long as you take your time, can be as good. Just need to flatten the two pins a wee bit for the link to stay on. I use a nail punch and hammer to burr it over. Use micrometer to make sure its similar width once burred to the other pins and no more than that (don't want to rivet the link solid!).

Kind of hard to cut the chain without a chain tool though. Be tough to press a pin out without bending a plate.

I'll buy the tool, not worth the aggravation to me.
