The chain is beefier than the stock Honda chain. The side plates are taller also.
You will need a rivet tool to mount this chain. It comes with everything you need once your old chain has been removed. Don't throw away the little packet of lube with the master link. You will need it for the master link O-rings.
My bike runs and shifts smoother than it did with my old stretched chain.
My only concern is that the white paint started to come off around some of the edges after I sprayed it with chain lube the first time, even before I rode the bike. I'm happy though, looks good.
