Changing from my stock chain

This may seem like a stupid question, and if so...I apologize...I am going to be doing my valve check/adjustments at a shop soon, plus installing a PCV/full system exhaust/dyno...a motorcycle website I shop from has streetbike chains for sale in green color which I really question is what size do I need to purchase I have a 2008 ZX10R...

EK Chains 530 MVXZ X-Ring Chain - 120 Links

EK Chains 525 MVXZ X-Ring Chain - 120 Links

EK Chains 520 MVXZ X-Ring Chain - 120 Links

the whole changing sizes and such confuses me as I am still learning about replacement parts and such, I just want to make sure I purchase the right size for my bike. Any friendly help would be appreciated.

You need a 525. If you ever question what size chain you have. Just look on the plates on the side of your chain. It'll have what size it is.

525 is the same size as you have. You'll have to cut the chain to size for the number of links. It's either 108 or 110 links (cant remember off the top of my head). Can't buy them Pre-cut. The EK MVXZ chains are top-rated as well, so that's a good choice.

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

Replace sprockets while ur doing it or the chain will wear faster than normal
