Im starting a SL project. Doing a stripped down barely street legal trail bike. Stripping of as much weight as possible. Im a bike mechanic and have done a few 350 top end builds for customers. Im going completly through this motor. Bore, light port polish, deck head, cam chain and tensioner. This bike will be for cow trailing and urban exploring so looking for reliable and is gonna be a keeper. Whats the BEST cam chain out there, brand & part number. Thanks :D

deafening... other guys more involved in 350s can weigh in, but I'm partial to using OEM brand cam chains - this looks like it would be good, it's the right brand

or this at David Silver - it says aftermarket but calls it DID and OEM in the listing here

Really - CRICKETS - you post after Mid-Night and expect an answer before 9:00 AM ?

I can't speak for the other guys here but this is not a full time job for me - it's a hobby that I jump into when I have some free moments.

DID Chains seem to be the preferred but there are options.

There are a couple of Supporting Vendors that have some Ads on the site.
Common Motor Collective is one that has a good selection of 350 parts.

I'm sure any new chain sold is better than the old stretched chain. One thing to watch out for is if it's the heavy version or standard. Ancientdad and simo and perhaps others have written about this, and the possible fitment issues around the sprocket damper.

The heavy version DID has fitment issues?
