    How much do you ride it and on what sort of terrain ?
    The ORing chain's have a lot of friction, so can rob some of your power, dirt still get's in too.

    I use a DID 520DZ2 on my IT200, it is cheap and strong, last's a lot longer than most H/D chains, it's light too so doesn't rob too much power, and is rated up to 450cc engines
    It cost's around $65

    The next one up is the 520VX2 Enduro X ring, which sell's for around $85

    Yeah that's pretty much my thought's on chain's too.
    But i went the 2nd one from cheapest, 420NZ3 on the Braaap, the expensive one's are harder to clean, and still wear out too.
    I'd rather replace a $50 chain twice a year, than pay $80-$100 twice a year.
    It all add's up, and that extra money could be spent on making more power etc
