2016 Euro 4 Brutale 800 chain.

Hi Guys & Gals
I have searched the forums but cannot find how many links for the drive chain for my 2016 Euro 4 (new model) Brutale 800. Also the bike has only covered 1500 miles (2400 km) is it worth changing for a DID ZMVX or similar now?

It's a definite maybe.

You could count the links of the chain that is on the bike...

1500 miles is nothing for the life of a chain, unless it was run in rain and not properly lubricated.
What makes the did zmvx chain better than the OEM chain on your Brutale?

There isn't.

Thanks, I had heard that the OEM chains stretched like an elastic band, obviously wrong.

It's a definite maybe.

Thanks for nothing Teeps, this is exactly the kind of know it all sarcastic answer that really pisses me off on forums. Of course I could count the links but I am in the middle of moving house and my bike is stored elsewhere.
As to your second point, I have no idea, have you?

It's a definite maybe.

Well now, based on the lack of information in the OP, the answers from Teeps was expected.
The link count is probably not posted anywhere. If it is, it would be the frame manual.
Factory chains will last tens of thousands of miles if properly maintained.
As for your sensitivity to sarcasm, lighten up Francis and you will find the information you need. We’re i at home with access to my manuals, I would look to see what information is in there.

Here you go Hubbinator (no sarcasm intended, implied or inferred...)
525 Chain Kit - SUPERLITE RS7 Steel Sprocket Set with Your Choice of X'ring Chain - MV Agusta 800 Brutale - 800 Brutale / Rivale / Stradale 2012-2016 - MV Agusta - STREET
They do not provide the link count of the chain; but, they will cut the chain of your choice to the correct length. Based on your specification of sprocket tooth count.
Prices appear to be reasonable as well.

@Hubbinator: I just did what anyone with an internet connection can do: I searched through the available Brutale 800 service manuals for chain link count - results - as expected. Not available.

As Teeps eluded, the chain link count you need is generally dependent on your sprocket set up. Aftermarket chains come with more links than you and you will have to remove those unwanted links.

It will require you, our someone who likes you, to go count the links on a Euro 4 Brutale 800.

I don't have one.

Yes, I have seen this but my bike is a 2017 model year with the longer swing arm, thank you for the info anyway.

It's a definite maybe.

Silent Service, amazingly for poor old England I do have an internet connection and had done what you suggested before I posted. My sprocket set up is as it left the factory.
Once I get my bike to my new house I will count the links. if you read my original post I was only asking because a) I thought that one of you guys might know, b) As I said I had heard that the OEM chains were pretty useless. esq'z me gave me the information on the OEM chain anyway.

It's a definite maybe.
