EK 420SRO 132 link. If you need help getting on down under, let me know. I can send you one to try. These are all Clip link chains, but I've never had an issue. This should be good for you to get 2 chains, plus you'll need an extra Master Link.

Not 100% sure it will work on your bike, as I designed my chain housing to have a little more room from the start, knowing I wanted to go this direction. The guys at Christini said they still run and send the bikes out with Non-o-ring chains as the smaller engine would or could notice a HP drain using an O-ring chain. Every little bit helps.

I've run my 950 on the dyno with the front chain on, AWD disengaged. No HP loss was noticed to the rear wheel. Not that I'm concerned, there is plenty there to spin up BOTH wheels at will in the dirt.

Not sure how to embed this???
Thanks CJ, I'll shoot you an email when I'm looking at getting a new chain.

Cheers Rich
