JPR Performance Chain

Has anyone used the JPR Performance chain on a 950. Any reviews on the 525 they sell for around $100?

I've never used one but it seems pretty dumb to not just spend the extra 70 bucks and get a DID brand chain and not have to worry about it breaking or wearing at some insane rate.

You break a chain and at best it'll only be expensive.

I know nothing about this brand of chain but I can say this...

On one of my big trips last summer my stock chain finally gave up the ghost (with nearly 20,000 miles on it)! I tried to buy a new set of sprokects and a new DID chain but the shop didn't have any sprokets in stock. So instead I bought a "bargain" a non-descript $117 dollar o-ring chanin (some brand I never heard of).

Now, with less than 4,000 miles on this "bargain" chain I get to re-adjust it every other ride and it is sloppy as hell. The post above probably says it best: spend the extra money and get a good one. Otherwise, the big KTM Twin will eat them up.

chain

Roger that,
Loud and clear. Only thing I guess I might throw out is as many know a lot of these products are made by the exact same manufacturer in china/japan and sold under diff. brands. One brand calls it MVXZ and the next calls it Heavy Duty. Takes a little research but can save $$$
Thx

Your New chain wore in to fit the Worn sprockets.

Which is exactly why I didn't spend the big bucks on a nice chain only to sabotage it on the 1,500 mile ride home. If only that shop had the right parts...
