Need to replace chain (DL650) : question about links.
Never replaced a chain before. Found a few places that sell DID525 style chains, but I've got a few questions:
The manual says the OEM chain is 116 links, but these seem to be nonexistent as aftermarket parts. Lots of 120's, no 116's. Would a 120 make much difference?
There's a gabillion different variants on the 525. VMX, V2, ZVM, etc, etc. I'm not looking for ultra performance here. Just a sturdy, reliable chain. Any recommendations here?
I've heard wind of some kind of DID master link clamping doojigger needed for putting the chains together. Where should I be looking for one of these?
