Heavy Duty Or Not
« on: October 10, 2019, 09:32:03 PM »
Evening all, Tiger 800xrx 2015. Ill be needing a new chain and sprockets fairly soon, Ive always bought DID X Ring Extreme chains in the past when I had my XJR1300, now that Im on the Tiger is there any benefit going for a heavy duty chain or should I just stick with the standard chain? If going heavy duty what do you recommend and is there anything I need to look out for, danger of rubbing on anything etc, on the XJR I had to drop down a tooth on the front sprocket to stop it rubbing!

The standard factory chain is the most basic O ring chain. For me it was certainly an upgrade to the X ring top of the range item. :028:

Right I've decided to go for the heavy duty D.I.D Chain, front sprocket theres a choice of cushined / damped or without, whats the recomendations of the good folks here? I'll be sticking with standard size sprockets.

Also so does anyone have the link for the chain rubbing strip?

Thanks for the help.

I've kept with the damped ones - don't know if there's a significant difference.
