CHAIN LIFE EXPECTANCY

Is there a certain mileage that the chain must be replaced, or does it get replaced when it is too long and the the rear axel cant go back any more?

A lot of things can effect when to change a chain. The chain it self cold either be as you stated to long or have other issues such as rust, stiff links and physical damage. One thing not to forget with a chain being to long is worn sprockets can generate the same effect. Make sure your sprockets have good teeth. Sprockets are usually made of softer metals so they wear out faster.

^ what he said.

I don't know what's normal mileage on the 1000rr, but my 600rr got about 16,000 miles on stock drive train. My motard will stretch the chain before the sprockets are done (pointed).

I take mine off every oil change...3000km and clean it. I've done over 20000 km with a chain and I just replaced it because I wanted to. And I'm not easy on that bike

I keep my chain and sprockets clean, adjusted and lubed PROPERLY and can get 15-20K miles. I'm certainly not easy on my bikes.

Sounds like you're making unnecessary work for yourself. Just use one of these and you won't wind up buying a new master link every oil change.

Same here. I've seen TOO many guys with rusty chains. Clean/lube at least every 500 miles. Always change sprockets and chain at the same time. Keep 'em serviced and they'll last like TheX said. If it "squeaks" before the 500 mile interval, service it then. A chain/sprocket set ain't cheap. Always buy a reputable/proven brand, even though it may cost more.
