    Hey everyone,

    I am stranded in Christianburg, Virginia after my sleeping bag got sucked into my rear wheel and warped my chain.

    I need a 520 o-ring chain with 114 links. I have a 2006, Ninja 650r. The two moto shops I found are closed. Anyone know where I can get a chain without waiting until Tuesday given the Memorial day weekend?

    :cry

    Modemrat, I'm about 30 miles away but don't have a chain for you. Just counted the links on my KTM but it's only 110. Don't know where you could get one.

    Maybe you could salvage the old chain by splicing the othe chain in. Make you more mobile until Tuesday.

    I emailed Travis over at Go Race. He got my email and called me at 9:30pm. He agreed to meet me at his shop on his way home from a wedding! Great guy! Got my chain.

    Was interesting seeing a guy cut down a 120 chain to 114 links while in dress slacks, :clap

    just saw your post up, if I'd seen it earlier we might could have saved Travis getting grease on his tux. :D Travis is a good egg.
