I just put a new EK X-Ring chain on my SV650 and was irritated to see it took up half the adjustment rate on the swingarm. And yes, it was the right amount of links, 110. Essentially, I am being robbed of half the value my hard-earned money paid for. And this is the 2nd time. Before I bought the manufacturer's OEM chain with the same result. But I thought before I raised this issue with the chain manufacturer I should be sure of my assumptions. I assume that chain links are standardized in size acording to some international agreement the same as bolts, etc. So the natural suspicion is that some chain company's are purposely "fudging", I.E., incrementally increasing chain length so that hapless consumers will line their pockets... So my questions to all you Moto-scribes and backyard mechanics out there are: 1) Is there a standard chain link length? 2) What company produces an honest chain length? If anyone knows, think of the pain you could prevent. Thankyou!
