I have always used the DID x-rings on my race quad, have always held up great. Lately, have been using the Primary Drive x-ring chains (Rocky Mountain ATV brand.) on my other quads. Haven't had any problems with them at all, pretty happy with them and they are cheaper then the DID chain and they have held up just as well. Have had such good luck with them, I may even start using them on my race quad.

not sure of the availabilty of renthal over there but they do a r4 quad chain..
Its an X ring with much thicker links.
Using one on a raptor, once set up it never seems to stretch or need adjusting and does last longer than a standard o-ring.
I had a chain snap which then smashed off the case saver and destroyed the sprockets, hence buying the best i can..

i appreciate the opinion, i dont want nothing like that to happen to my XX, the oem chain is dam good i was wondering how renthal and did x ring was compared to oem and Doug said the primary drive x ring was decent i just want whatever chain i buy be just as good as oem or better especially about streching , i think i had to tighten my oem chain 3 times which was 300 hrs on my hr meter ive been ridin hard for 2 years on the oem which im pleased with the wear of the oem, the oem chain from honda cost more than the other chains mentioned above

Yamahas use DiD as oem chain and its very good quality..Not many aftermarket ones are as good !
I use to get around 3000 miles per chain and sprocket set before they needed changing.

Which rings would you recommend? I'm not talking about the price, but more about the quality. I have saved up a good amount, so I'm just looking to hook up my cars.

I previously said X-ring but meant Z ring claims to be the best..

Here is the blurb from the renthal r4 atv chain, am sure others make a similar chain?
I can vouch for these as fit, adjust then never need adjusting again...

Here is a place that sells them starting at $86.95

R4 ATV Chain

A 520 z-ring chain designed specifically for ATV applications. The R4 ATV Off Road Chain has the following features:
  • Patented z-ring seals dramatically increase the life of the chain

  • Larger diameter pins manufactured from specially enhanced steel improve the resistance to shock loads

  • A quad riveting process on each pin increases the tensile strength of the chain

  • Thicker inner and outer plates increase the fatigue life of the chain

  • Available in 520 pitch only, average tensile strength is as follows:

    R4 ATV 520 – 8093 lbf

This O-ring chain says 8200 lbs, so does the Z ring just last longer? And I followed link and it says 7868 lbs. Im sure a few hundred pounds don't matter as far as strenght goes. Just wanting to know if it out last o-ring? And what type of clean and lube products for the Z-ring chain's?
