    I've always used DID chains on the race and street bikes. Been using the 520ERV3 race chain for the past while, very happy with it.

    I have a did on mine, and no complaints here....I've read that they are all about the same though.

    All the good companies (DID, RK, AFAM, etc) are about the same. It's what chain within their line that you buy that matters.

    Yeah but ditch the AI sprockets. Especially Vortex. They have issues. The best are steel sprockets with AI carriers.
