    Chain has never let me down

    This will be the third X-Chain that I've put on my 09 F800GS. I always easily get between 10k to 14k on each one and have yet to have any one of them start to show signs of sticking or the infamous "popping" noise that you sometimes hear about.

    Goes right on like it belongs there

    My first DID chain but I don't think it will be the last. Just cutting it to length gave me a good idea of the quality of materials. I ride easy, got over 20k on the stock chain, I expect double that from this one.

    DID 525 VX CHAIN

    I have used DID chains for many years, never had a problem with one, I get excellent wear and long reliable life. I have tried cheaper chains but in the end they cost more because of the short service life. Good product, fast shipping, good price, another happy customer.

    DID 525VX

    I've had good experience with DID before and expect the same from this chain. Side plates are slightly larger than some of the other chain manufacturers. I don't know if this protects the X-rings a little more but it does seem to add some weight.

    DID 525 ZVM

    I've used all the different chains, RK, Tsubaki, and DID. I've never had an issue with DID. I use steel over aluminum rear sprockets, stock fronts, and DID chains exclusively now. On my Ducati, the last chain was on 4 years, and did not need any adjustment, even through tire changes, I never touch the adjusters. Highly recommended, I wouldn't use anything else now.

    Seems to work like a chain...

    Yeah, like the other reviewer; DID is a pretty good fit on the quality/value scale. Right now it runs and feels like a brand new chain, because it is. If I were really organized I would have saved this link for 3 years and reviewed this chain when it had 14,990 miles on it. Then this review would mean something.

    quality and value

    Have run many a DID chain for lots of miles in the past and the quality and value of this 525 x-ring is no different. Once measured and cut to the right length, installation was easy. Only several hundred miles so far, but expect performance and wear to be excellent.
