1995 CBR600 Chain?

I need a new chain for my bike. It just had a new sproket put on it and I dont want to wear it down by waiting to long to put a new chain on.

The new chain indicator on the swing arm is a about a millimeter passed the "replace chain" marker so I think it is about time.

Can you guys recommend a website or a place where I can get a good one at a good price. Also, I am relatively handy, but have never replaced a chain before. I have the service manual so I think I can figure it out, but do you guys have hints or special pointers for putting it on.

Thanks,
I appreciate any help.

I always use http://www.kneedraggers.com/

and a DiD x-ring chain only $92 for the 520.

But you need to ignore those alignment marks on the swingarm.... get one of these chain clignment tools. Its cheap and won't cost ya much if you buy it with the chain.

Here's a thread on the tool

Here's the link to the tool (which can be found in that thread as well)


Don't believe me in that those marks are off... read my "toothless at the GAP" thread

its a simple job if you have the right tool. If you link the new chain to the old. You can thread it around the front sprocket without removing the cover.
