Ek 3d chain mileage

Post by Snakes709 » Mon Aug 01, 2022 11:07 pm


What kind of mileage you all getting out of your ek 3d chain? Replaced mine this winter, just shy of 24,000km on my factory chain and got 4000km, yes you read that right, 4000km on the 3d chain and she is creaking pretty loud. I have to lube it every other day to stop the creaking. Going to replace it but highly doubt ill go with it again. Probably go with DID or something else.

In the Enuma catalog it is indicated that the 3D chain is for SuperSport up to 1000cm. Nothing is said about heavy SportTourers...

There's a thread on here somewhere asking about chains and it was found the DID chain had twice the load capacity of its RK counterpart. Given the power of this bike I'd be looking for the strongest chain I can find. Mine is at 18k km on the factory chain and I've only adjusted it once. I do have a scottoiler on it and I ride mostly with the better half on the back so I'm not up it all the time (but when she's not on the back its a different story :D )

I've always had good service life outta my EK chains.X rings.I do clean em more than the average person probably.I'm pretty good about that.
Only time previously had any chain fail was with my zx14r(start failing)was when I used wd 40 for a few times regularly.THat shiite LOVES o-rings!Maxima chain wax is the deal,imo.You have to clean the chain after several several hundred miles using it.But works great.
