Just bought my first, a used 2016 CBR 300R. Looked to be in great shape except the chain was very rusted.
After checking the drive chain slack and seeing that adjusting it properly would take me well past the Red Zone, I realize I will have to replace the chain. The owner's manual says to replace with RK 520KLO or DID 520VF. I cannot seem to find these exact parts. Can someone point me towards an easily available drive chain replacement?
Thanks!

It's not as specific as it says in the manual. Any good brand O-ring 520 chain will be fine. DID, Renthal, RK, Tsubaki etc

520 chain, 108 links! I went mid-grade price-wise when replacing mine on the 300: RK brand at $49.

edit: (Whoops, I just got caught up in the other thread)

:) no worries
that's exactly what I got: the mid-grade RK chain
