Looking for a new chain for my Ninja250...

I don't need or want anything fancy. I just want a decent chain without spending a lot. What do you all recommend?

If you don't want to go big and crazy like the one I have (we were talking about this in another thread recently you can check it out) then you could pick up something like this: http://www.motorcycle-superstore.com...640&division=6

On sale, too.

How many miles on the bike/current chain setup?

You need to replace the 3 pieces. That is both sprockets and the chain at the same time.

Thanks!

be sure to check out local shops... you may be able to find package deals on all 3 pieces... but regardless where you get it... buy them as a set...it's cheaper

A chain is a chain is a chain. What I mean is this... A DiD 520 chain is not model or brand specific.

Sprocket specialties will also have sprockets. But you have to go titan to get case hardened.

I don't like them as much but they do make them for about EVERY bike out. And I checked.. they make them for every ninja 250.

Since this bike is my first and I am sure I will want to upgrade a year or two down the road I decided to just buy a sprocket set and chain off of a new 2007 250. They where cheap and new and will do the job for me. Thanks for all of the info. and help!

That is what I figured. I decided I didn't want to dump a ton of money into this bike...I already spent more than I should have. LOL

I plan on doing all of the work myself. I got the wheels pulled off now and as soon as the chain and sprockets come I am going to drop the swing arm to grease it and at that time install the chain and sprockets.

Sounds like you got it under control. Aren't you close to me (me in downriver)? I could stop by if you need a hand.

Yeah, these bikes are fairly easy to work on. I am pretty mechanically inclined, it's just I am new to bikes.

I am in Wyandotte. Thanks for the offer!!!!!! I will shoot you a pm if I get jammed up for sure!
