Hi,
Does anybody know if the DID 525ZVMX chain master link can be used in the OEM 525ZVM2 chain?

Thanks

I might be wrong but I don't think they are the same, I seem to remember something like this from when I first started doing track days and wanted to shorten my OEM chain, be careful, it's a very expensive mistake you can make here.

Thanks for the super quick reply Dons. I had a feeling this would be the case...

Looks like it will have to be a gold link as that is all I can find available now...

Use your Vernier calipers and measure the pin diameters and lengths to compare. The pitch is the same, so only pin size will be different (and materials of course).

The good folk at DID in Japan wrote back and confirmed they are not compatible. I have managed to find a few of the correct ones.

What sort of life can I expect out of this chain? Both the chain and sprockets look fine after 20,000+ km
