    Buying a new drive chain?

    Just a word of warning to anyone planning on buying a new drive chain for the S1000XR, it appears D.I.D have our bike listed as needing a 118 link chain when in reality it needs a 128 link 525 chain.
    Lots listed on Ebay and all seem to be listed as 118 links.
    I know this now, as I bought one

    I put a Tsubaki Sigma 'X' Ring Drive Chain – 525 Pitch x 128 on mine at 14,000 miles.

    I'd have thought a 525 was standard size?
