Upgraded cam chain?

So anyone found another way to upgrade the cam chain yet? I know Alba listed a kit, but it is no longer available. The Alba kit used XR650R HRC parts and a Suzuki DR650 cam chain, but the lower sprocket is now discontinued. Just curious if anyone has come up with anything else. Currently have my motor apart and should be getting my parts back in the next day or so, wouldn't mind upgrading before I reassemble everything.

I seem to think cam chain of a WR400 fits. Its same length as the xx but the same width as the one on a TRX450r.

I remember that post also Lee where the guy mentioned the WR chain. Looks like they are about $40, probably going to pick one up to compare.

???? Not really sure what you mean by an adjustable timing chain, do you mean an adjustable cam sprocket? If so, I haven't seen one.

Doug...the only guy that i have heard of breaking the cam chain is Matlock Racing.. We are making more power than his build but don't run them as long as you guys do. Until we break one i won't worry about it. Just my .02$

I have heard of a couple other desert guys breaking them, guess the stock one doesn't like being ran for long periods of time. Then I also know others that have never had a problem. Thought about leaving the stock one in untill I do break it, (just replace as a regular maint. item.) but the way my luck has been going lately, it will break at high rpm and piston will meet valves and cause major carnage. Would rather be proactive.

Figured I would post an update on this. Did a little more research on a WR cam chain. (Actually, 1998-2002 YZ/WR 400's and 426's use the same chain.) I found a used 99 YZ400 cam chain on Ebay for about $15 shipped. I picked it up just to see how it fits the XX. Figured if it all looked good, then I would spend the $40 on a new one. The YZ chain I got looks just like the oem XX chain, same width and all. The only difference is the YZ chain will not fit on the XX cam sprocket, there was a slight gap between the sprocket and chain, looks like the sprocket teeth are a little different between the two motors. Granted, the guy selling it may not have really known what it was for, but as far as I am concerned, a early YZ/WR cam chain does NOT fit a XX.

Looks like I will just be running a oem cam chain and replacing it fairly often.

I tried to find a d.i.d 120l chain still no answer yet. D.i.d offer a special treatment :Precision engineered for today’s sophisticated engines
Designed for superior durability at high rpm
Low wear means years of dependability
Silent Cam Chain
Special Dai-hard™ treatment forms an extremely hard metallic layer on the pin surface for increased durability
Unique pin-linkplate set-up offers an ideal engaging mechanism for smooth, low-friction power
High tolerance protects against power loss.

Maybe it can be custom made?

Built, reliable and hard trailriden!

This is going to be my next replaced part to rid my quad of the tinging I still have so I'm subscribing. How much of the motor do you have to take apart to get this chain out?
