replacement of timing chains- when?

hello to everyone
i want to know when is time to replace the timing chain on a Superhawk?
mine has 65 000 kms - aprox 40 000 miles.
there is no suspicious sounds from engine, i have manual CCT's.
i look in the manual but i don't find any specification about when to change the timing chains.
so i'm asking you..

Never, chains aren't belts. There are Superhawks out there with over 150000 miles (+240000 kms) so you have nothing to worry about there. It is the CCT and not the chain that fails.
