I admit I was nervous at first I'd ride slow and increment speed every day and check visually to make sure it was still in place without changes. It works exactly like advertised, I've ridden about 6000 miles worth matching EK chain and I seem to go up to 2000 miles between stretches, mostly commuting no racing or track but I ran as fast as 150 mpg in freeway where traffic and cops are absent. Great buy, so much easier to install and precise than using difficult tools to rivet. I will stick to this rivet and EK chains going forward. 84,000 in bike ride daily and have had several brands including RK, this is best since OEM Infiniti chain which lasted me 30,000 miles
I couldn't believe that the front plate to the master link wouldn't slide onto the pins. But after reading some reviews it seems I'm not the only one. With some very light grinding with a dremel i was able to make it work.
Came nicely packaged. Really nice install and fitment. I paired this with a 42T rear sprocket and got nearly a 1,000 RPM drop in 6th. Hills may require a downshift now, but the engine handles the highway speeds much better without feeling like its going to explode. Same manufacture as the OE sprocket on my bike, so I would assume it will last quite a while as long as you maintain your chain every 300 miles.
Came nicely packaged, and was a direct fit with zero issues on install. I paired this with the 15T front sprocket and am very pleased with my new cruising RPM's. Now the bike feels "ok" at highway speeds vs the previous high RPM struggle. Almost a 1,000 RPM drop in 6th. 6th gear going up a hill may require a down shift now to keep speed, but the pros far outweigh the cons for this change.
