    Good chain choice??

    Well i decided to change my chain cause it was looking alittle worn so i decided to go green as usual and got a green EK 525 on my zx7r ,i also changed the front and rear sprockets as to keep all of those components fresh,now here's the thing should i have gotten the D.I.D instead or is the EK a decent chain because from what i hear the EK chains are what come stock on all Kawasaki motorcycles. Fact or fiction and what would you have picked???

    No idea, about the difference on DID and EK, most likely both are the same. How much did everything cost you ? I am still on stock oem chain and sprockets after 2 years and 27,000 kms....but the green chain is what I will be getting...

    Thumbs up

    I replaced my stock chain on my Busa with a EK ZVX 530 and man that baby was tough it lasted 24 thou km and that is dragraced ,wheelied,very high speed runs and other abuses.I replaced it with the only chain i could get at the time cheapbacki and it sucks. I always rivit my master links,so i buzz them off with a angle grinder when its time to replace them and the EK was a bear to grind off the Tsubaki was like butter.I will wait this time and go back to EK ZVX.

    The EK's are used on the world's fastest top fuelers (eg Spiderman). I've picked up the same chain as newbusa for my 1100, based on a bit of research. It is visibly built like a brick shithouse and I'm pleased with the physical comparo between it an eg Regina. It goes on for this season...yummm!!
