   D.I.D. X-Ring Chain & Sprocket Kit

D.I.D. X-Ring Chain & Sprocket Kits are a high quality replacement that offers longevity for higher CC sport bikes and sport touring bikes. D.I.D. X-Ring Chain & Sprocket Kits feature low friction x-ring chains, D.I.D. chromoly steel front sprocket and heat treated high carbon steel rear sprocket. D.I.D’s Patented X-Ring chain design has the best sealing properties of any O-Ring chain. D.I.D X-Rings keep the dirt out and lubrication in for the longest wear life. When replacing your chain and sprockets look no further than D.I.D.


   Features
  • The X-Rings twist between the side plates instead of being squished to reduce friction and minimize power loss.
  • D.I.D X-Rings keep the dirt out and lubrication in for the longest wear life.
  • D.I.D Chain and Sprocket Kits may contain either a gold or unplated steel ZVM-X or VX chain.

Way better than expected and I'm a true skeptic.
The chain came out of the box a perfect length. I didn't have to cut links out or anything. The gold color looks awesome. Its a pro set of units. I highly recommend this set. Im gonna buy this same set for another bike I own. Well worth the money. If you like your bike yer gonna love this sprocket and chain set.

Tim C on Mar 2, 2018
D.I.D. products have been good to me over the years (45) and I know if this dosen't fit I know you have a good return policy!! also it's no cheaper to buy these things individually FREE SHIPPING is a no brainer
Old Fart on Feb 18, 2018
I need these parts to insure the chain doesn’t brake when I’m riding. My friend Mike said you guys had great prices on motorcycle parts. He was right. Thank you!!!!🙂 Oh and navigation through your website was relatively easy. That makes a difference whether I stay and shop or on to an easier website. Thanks again!!!

Aldo C on Feb 12, 2018
I needed a new chain. Looking for something heavier duty than stock, but not changing the teeth.
Zak K on Feb 9, 2018
Got good reviews and I had one on another bike and it lasted a long time.
Robert R on Jan 20, 2018
I ordered this after many reviews I've read on the V-Strom forums. I do already know that DID chains are probably the best out there, so it was an easy decision. And the price for this kit was cheaper than Cycle Gear or Amazon...
B I on Dec 26, 2017
This was highly recommended by multiple user forums as a great aftermarket upgrade for my '09 Wee-Strom, not to mention over $40 cheaper (and faster delivery) than Cycle Gear.
Von K on Sep 13, 2017
had this one before on my bike, it made about 25 000 km on this before I replaced it now very happy by that!
kristoffer s on Sep 4, 2017
It fit the bike and I wanted durability. I have used these chains and sprockets before with good results.
Brian W on Sep 3, 2017

F W on Aug 27, 2017
Exact fit and D.I.D quality.
Ken F on Aug 24, 2017
Forums recommended DID as a high quality chain/sprocket kit to replace the OEM kit on my CBR600RR. The price was reasonable, and I like that they are identical to OEM.
P H on Jul 24, 2017
Great customer reviews and my son made this recommendation, he has been riding and working on sport bikes a lot longer than me, so I value opinion.
Bob on May 8, 2017
DID X chains have never let me down and are long lasting.
William M on May 6, 2017
The previous owner put the -1, +2 chain and sprocket kit a while ago so I've been wanting to get the gas mileage back. Today I was adjusting the slack in the chain an noticed that the chain goes from tight to loose as I rotate the rear wheel, so I decided to order a new kit right now. Hopefully nothing bad happens with this old chain while the new chain comes in, this is the only vehicle I have to commute to school and back. Keep me in your prayers
Braeden M on Apr 28, 2017
it fit perfectly my bike
Samuel L on Mar 30, 2017

Paul B on Feb 18, 2017
It wasn't overpriced and was factory ratio so it doesn't involve more cost to fix the speedometer and odometer problems a new ratio would create. Also not gold in color.
Kevin M on Feb 17, 2017
Recommend in the Honda Manual for replacement chain,

Is the master link, a, stake or clip. Thanks
chuck on Feb 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question! This will come with the "stake" (Rivet) type master link. Please let us know if there if there is anything else we can assist you with.
Are the Links on this chain Gold? It does say natural color, but the photo from reviews has a nice gold chain!
A shopper on Jul 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question! Each kit is different, some are gold some are natural, it depends on the machine. If a machine has the option of either gold or natural you will have the option to select the color. If you only see natural for the machine you picked unfortunately the gold is not available. Please let us know if there is anything else we can do for you by contacting us by email at [email protected], Live Chat or by phone toll free at 1-888-339-3888. We are always more than happy to help.
Do you need a rivet tool to install this chain or does it come with a snap clip link?
PM123 on Aug 16, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question! for this kit you will need a rivet tool in order to install this. Please let us know if there is anything else we can assist you with.
Can I get a master link that does not require a rivet tool for this chain?
ADAM S on May 24, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hello Adam, I have attached links for the clip style master links for both 520 and 525 chains. Unfortunately D.I.D. doesn't offer a clip style master link for a 530 chain. Please let us know if there is anything else we can do for you by contacting us by email at [email protected], Live Chat or by phone toll free at 1-888-339-3888. We are always more than happy to help.
