Will my chain survive a long trip?

OK, same sort of question... the stock chain has about 24,000 km (14,400 miles) on it and the trip will add another 7,000 (4200 miles) for a total of about 31,000 km or 18,600 miles by the end.

It seems OK at the moment and the sprocket teeth look fine too.

I'm inclined to leave it alone.

Check how much it has stretched. Instructions are in the owner's manual.
