Not enough info provided as to why you are asking about the chain. If it is the original chain from new, consider changing the chain plus sprockets as a set. Many prefer using the DID X-ring chain, while other are finding the EK chain and master link easier to install. Make use of the search facility on this site, examples of hits https://www.stromtrooper.com/dl1000-...free-play.html, https://www.stromtrooper.com/dl1000-...891-chain.html, https://www.stromtrooper.com/dl1000-...um-dl1000.html. Perhaps use the wording chain master link, as chain could be confusing.. cam chain vs drive chain or the wording sprockets.

I have been running DID Chain 525 ZVMX chains (I have a K6 Wee), from the Sprocket Center. I change the front sprocket with the chain, as it is usually starting to hook. I get longer use out of the rear sprocket.

Last chain lasted for 34,000+ miles. I lube at the end of the riding day while the chain is warm when traveling, and every couple of hundred miles when just riding around the area. I never clean the chain (the V-Tom Method).


YMMV
