on EK!

I only use DiD. I have a gold face with gold inners and outers. x-ring as well, of coarse!

DiD is the best, nothing else will do!

Thats what I was afraid of, I heard of another person who had an EK chain, and had the same thing happen after about year..dont know if this is par for the course with these chains or not...the colored ones are kinda cool...but thats 2 bad reviews I've heard now with these..will probably steer clear of em.

The other rider I know that used one, was riding a Ninja ZX 7, mostly stock.

Doesn;t sound too good. I guess that's the price to pay for vanity.

Why do you want a colored chain? Just go with a DiD and you'll be good to go.

I just replaced my OWM chain and sprockets. I bought a Suzuki OEM chain again - a DID. Comes in a Zook box with DID stamped on the links.
