Default what chain for cbr?

What chain do we use for the cbr250r? i need to get a new. I know its o-ring type, but what is the number of links? Its probably in the owners manual, not sure. But im drinking a beer and am too lazy to get up . Plus there is no ******************** information about the chain type online. Also the dealer wants $150 to change the chain. id rather just do it myself and save like 80 bucks.

How may miles did you get out of the old chain? Does it need replaced because of use or was it damaged?

I also need a new chain i believe. I'm pretty sure i have a seized up link, the bike is having some vibrations and noises from the chain area. If I lift the rear tire and spin it the wheel spins freely and then gets hung up in one spot. I would rather not pay honda to diagnose this as i believe the chain is my problem. Anyways, anywhere else to get a chain from besides the dealer? Should i attempt to change it myself or have it profesionally done?

Any help would be great

Here is Aufitt's step by step pics on installing a new drive chain. It's on page two of this thread: Changing the front sprocket.

You can order a chain from one of the online Honda dealers... powersportsplus.com has the OEM drive chain for less than $50.00 USD.

That's pretty good mileage out of the stock rear tire... I've got 6000 miles on mine so far, I think I'll be lucky to get 8500 - 9000 from the original IRC's. The front tire is starting to cup.

Have you guys checked out if you can get an X-ring chain instead of an O-ring chain? In my experience they are better. Last longer, seal better so they stay cleaner an don't need as much attention. Only bad thing is they cost more. But to me it's worth it.

chain neglection is rampant on bikes that are ppl's first rides.
i seen a brandnew gsr600 the other day with a chain so badly
rusted i couldnt believe how it looked,the young guy on it
probably dosent relize it needs attention/inspected once in awhile.

i soak my chain once every 500-600 miles and
spray a general wd40 type spray on it after a few rides if needed-
just to keep the grime and the possibility of surface rust down to 0%.
my bike has over 6000 miles with no chain adjustment yet.
