Best stock size chain for my 2006?

Looking at a direct replacement, what brand/model do you all suggest? Also is this close in price to going to a 520 conversion? Thanks all!

I read, I think from Rogue, DID chain and AFAM sprockets. All kinds of tips on his site.

a decent 530 replacement chain will run you the same, if not more, than this 520 conversion. i run this kit on my 08 without any issues. when you replace a chain, you need to replace the sprockets as well.

^ Thats not true. You only need to replace the sprockets if warn or conversion.

9 times out of 10, if you are replacing a stock chain, you have thousands on everything. once the chain and sprockets "mate", if you replace just the chain, you will wear the chain out much faster versus replacing the sprockets as well.

I went with a 530 Ek MVXZ in Black. I really like it.

I put it on after having a 520 kit with the same chain.

I wore my sprockets out with the 520 after not as many miles as I would have hoped for. I had driven sprockets for the 520 and the same driven sprockets for the 530. The 530 is just a more durable design IMO. The sprockets are much thicker with the 530, obviously, and since it is a street bike it doesn't bother me to have the extra material if it means it will last longer. I will sacrifice the weight difference for longevity. I would check my chain and alignment all the time with the 520, as I still do with the 530, but it didn't make a difference. It sprockets still wore out much earlier than I wanted.
