    I am running the Tsubaki nickel-plated chain right now. It is awesome. Side plates aren't the classic dogbone shape.... it is a tough mo-fo chain....

    You might check out the EK ZZZ chains. I'm running one now and it's really holding up well. I think it's one of the strongest 530 chains out there. I found the best prices at Parts411.com.

    A Dremel tool, and a chain tool. I'm doing mine today. Finally. After sitting in the box for a long, long time. RK chain for me. I get decent mileage out of them, and they are fairly forgiving of lack of maintenance.

    I've got the same setup. Adjustments every 1000 to 1200 miles. Build for tough work and longevity. Spend the extra bucks, you get what you pay for.

    Re: need new chain

    I take it you are going to replace both chain sprockets at the same time as the chain, right?

    It's been a popular trend, lately, to replace the front sprocket with an 18 tooth unit, to get the speedo dead on, as well as improve your mileage.

    Just something else for your consideration.

    I replaced the chain and sprokets last summer with a DID chain, 18T front and new steel rear,
    all purchased from White Buffalo Racing. They had good prices on all of the pieces. I am quite
    happy with the new gearing, especially up here in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. With the
    17T front, I was always hunting up and down between 1st and 2nd in some of the really tight
    uphill switch backs, as neither gear was quite right; the 18T lets me stay in 1st most of the
    time in these situations. The correction of the speedo is just icing on the cake.
