What type / size chain are y'all running on your hawks? I know the standard is 530 X 102, but I was wondering if their are any brands, or types, better than others (especially for durability).


Thanks for any help!

I put on an EK 530 last summer. So far no problems.

Ive got DID chain sofar I've put 8,000 miles on it and it still looks to have 80% of the adjusters left. I don't know what people are averaging for chain life though. So I don't know if thats any good.

Thanks for the replies! My chain is about an inch out of adjustment, half way out on the adjuster range, and dry. I sprayed the chain lube on it, but I found out that I dont have a wrench (that fits) to adjust the axle nuts.

Looks like another trip to Sears.
