A chain failure is one of the worst failures that your DRZ400 can experience. As your chain gets older (more worn) it will become looser as the metal links gradually stretch. This lack of tension on your chain causes it to apply extra wear to the chain track and to your rear sprocket, in the best case scenario. In the worst case, the chain will break and cause a number of fun issues for you and your DRZ400. If you’re lucky, the loose end of the chain will rip around and puncture your motor’s housing, rendering your bike useless until fixed or replaced. If you’re not so lucky the chain will whip your leg and likely causing severe lacerations. Another fun scenario when your chain is loose is if it’s loose enough to get wedged at the wrong angle, which will tear your gearing to shreds and likely throw you over the handlebars.

Seriously guys, don’t be cheap and push your chain past its prime. If your OEM chain is getting loose, you really shouldn’t ride until you get a new one. We recommend the Quadra-X chain from EK. The chain is engineered with several features that significantly increase chain life, like the lightening holes that reduce the centripetal force exerted on the chain and track. Their patented Quadra X-Ring Chain significantly reduces friction by changing the shape and material that is used. The result is more power that’s applied to your wheel and extending the life of your chain assembly.
