get a 3/4. IIRC 4/5 you may have to mod the guides a little. i believe one of the mods on here (cfm-z440 i think) was talking about it in one of the threads. search around a bit you should be able to find it or someone else will chime in. but a 3/4 will work perfectly and be plenty strong enough if that is what you are worried about

get the 3/4, you don't need a 4/5 unless you do some major engine mods.

you would save yourself so much time by searching. even if you dont like this sites search, google will usually come up with this sites threads as results.

You're about the only one. The DID chain is far superior to the stock chain. Go with the DID 3/4 chain, it will last you far longer than the stock chain ever will. The stock chains are garbage, along with the stock valves.

I haven't put a cam chain in my wheeler yet, but I am curious if anyone actually has measured their cam chain to see how much it has stretched. I know even mountain bike chains stretch, and need to be replaced over time. You can even measure this with a tape measure. Is there any spec, other the the # of clicks on the ACCT to see how much the stock chain has stretched?

I know, if your going to the work of measuring the stretch, you might as well replace. Just curiosity.

Johndeere- Like I said, I personally don't have a DID. But that is the basic upgraded replacement over stock, and it seems to work for everyone on here. Maybe something happened to yours, that is why I am asking if there is a measurement that can be taken between pins in the chain

I lined them up side by side, and the stock chain was a good half inch longer... that's a lot when it comes to such tight tolerances.

i think people here who are still using an auto tensioner go by the 2 clicks left = replace it rule.

i have been replacing mine every season just because its easy, cheap, and good insurance.
