New Chain & TUbliss from Slavens

HI, I need to get a new Chain to replace my stock one, can someone recommend one. I'm heading to Alaska this June will have a full load on. Also has anyone tried the TUbliss inner tube replacement from Slaven's Racing?

I have been running DID ZVXM-2 525 size chains on my 950's for years. Not cheap, but they work and lasy pretty well.

Also, I run the TUbliss system on my current 950SE (front only) and I also ran it on my previous 950ADV. I also run the TUbliss system front and rear on my KTM 250. I love them. On the 950 they take away the constant pinch flat concern. The do the same onh my 250 but also allow me to run really low air pressures with my trials rear tire.

I have probably done a total of 6000-8000 hard off-road miles on my SE with no troubles. I carry a plug kit and also a spare tube for catastrophic failure but I have never had to use either. Great product.

I agree
DID ZVXM-2 525
very best available

also use the stock KTM front sprocket
aftermarket sprockets could have the wrong Rockwell Hardness factor and destroy your countershaft

never tried a Tubliss because I was told by pros it is not recomended on the big bike , will feel like you have a flat , dangerous and unsafe, so I took their word for it because they are pros and offer reliable info

Disagree with that, not running on a 950 but a 660 front that is 200kg fully fueled (950 weight). Makes the front feel a little bit softer hitting square edges on a track. Nice!

IMO it's either a VX2 or a ZVM-X chain, there is no such chain as ZVXM-2.
