DID 525 VAZ source in US?

I've got a 2014 F3 800 and looking to replace the chain. The chain itself says DID 525 VAZ on it. I could order from Startwin or evolution.it but it seems really unnecessary to have to get a chain from overseas. My search keeps coming up with VX as what is available from DID. Does anyone know a good way to get the VAZ chain in the US?



The info I have is:


114 links, 525 pitch, 17 / 41 sprockets.

2014 MV Agusta F3 800 ABS

Thanks silent,


The thing is I have found chains from DID but not in my link length and I'm not sure what the VAZ equivalent is. I'm going to message DID and see what the specs for a VAZ is vs VX vs VX2 etc is.


If anyone knows please let me know though! I can't be the only 23,000 mile F3 800 around looking for a new chain in the US?!!!

You will not find your exact length. You will need to buy a chain with more links than required and remove the links you do not need.

I specifically asked for where I can find the VAZ chain... not the VX.


I appreciate the extensive response on how I can't search on ebay due to me lack of pencil sharpness.


For those interested I spoke with DID in the US and they said the VAZ is an OEM chain and that the VX would be the equivalent. The person on the phone essentially repeated the same info that is found on the website.

The earth is sphere shaped. I'm right but irrelevant.

I don't really feel the lack of power when I'm riding on the street. Keeping up and ahead of most guys I ride with including liter bikes and above. Maybe I would need that little extra if I was competing or on the track. Not worth the decreased service interval I think. This is based on my research but if someone has information showing otherwise please share.
