I have been looking forever for a good chain.
I have been reading up @ motorcycleanchor.com
i have been searching and searching
i finally found one i want, i think
Its an EK chain first off, and i dont know how reliable or how good their chains are
Second off How good is a 530SGC Twin Power Show Ní Go Chrome X-Ring Chain, i mean is it practical to buy for as it says SHOW AND GO?
thanks for the help

EK makes reasonable quality chains as long as you get the ones specifically rated for your use. All chain manufacturers tend to make a wide variety of chains (even in the same size) -- so a 530 chain for a dirt bike is different than a 530 chain for Katana, etc.
The obvious people to ask what would be correct out of the EK line up would be EK themselves -- give 'em a call or send 'em an email.

Make sure you get new sprockets at the same time -- if the chain is toasted, the sprockets will be too, and they should all be changed at the same time.

PS - personally, I use the standard combo kit (RK chain, Vortex steel sprockets, 20k mile warrantee) available from bike bandit.
