OK,,,I've search but couldn't find anything,,,may be I'm not typing in the right key word....Need some quick help please...

I have DID 520 with 15/42 combo...had it for about 4-5k miles. How long do I have to go before it needs to be replaced??? It had been clean and lube every 500 miles,,,,doesn't look streched,,,havn't had to adjust it much at all except for normal scheduled maint.

Reason I'm asking is I'm putting new tires on tomorrow and wonder if I should replace the chain also,,,going to the track this Friday for birfday...:)

Thanks in advance y'all,,,

Butch....

your good for atleast 3 times that or 15k miles, before you should even consider replacing it. That is considering proper slack and lube like you stated.

yeah man your nowhere near needing to replace it yet. as long as your cleaning and lubricating like you said...with the 520 i dont think youll get 3 times as much but should be at the very least 10,000 miles or more

i race with a 520 chain, it broke in less than 4000 KM, I clean it regularly and I raced in 4 races and 3 trackdays. I think that problem is this: the only tracks I go to are about 600KM away from my house ( no tracks near me ) and on the way there are sand storms ( Saudi Arabia ) and every time I reach my destination I wash the bike but this time I did not.
