Thanks for the input everyone. I'm definitely willing to pay for good quality.

Oh well, thats what it took for me to through a few thousand more dollars at it to take it from a basic xrr to the fire breathing dragon it is today.

THe one thing that really pissed me off is after I posted a critical review of Primary Drive on Rockymountainmc.com, they contacted me to see if the chain was really to blame. After I proved to them that it was the chain's failure, they refunded me the cost of the chain, and removed my review of their product. Jerks, hiding the truth.

DO not buy Primary Drive anything.

RK Xso is quality made in Japan chain. Not comparable to primary drive. IMO:-)

Oh, I know. RK (also excellent chains) is not to be compared with PD. I just wanted to emphasize that putting a chain on the xrr is not the same as say a 250 where anything will work without fear. It is not a good way to save money. In fact, if the xrr used a slightly longer chain, the wife's CRF would be getting the hand me downs.

I would shoot for something around or over the 7000# mark tensile strength.

If anyone's got a line on a good running engine on the west coast (PNW is best), I'm in the market (again)

Green Mtn. maybe, off Seabeck Hwy? Pretty fun place to ride, although there are hikers, mtn bikes, and horses.

Ouch, not sure it would have completely prevented that, but the XRsOnly case saver is pretty burly and seems like cheap insurance?

Nope, not green mountain, I am very familiar with that area. This was just a bunch of random brush picker trails and logging roads.

I'm a fan of the rk chain 520exw

I run it on my XR currently and also run it behind my very healthy built KX500 and it puts up with that abuse with a huge paddle
