Any idea about chain

I bought this chain when I got a new 06 that has these words on the links
RK, Japan, 525 GXW, 1640 and its gold. It worked since even after many track days it was good till I failed lubricating for a while. It really didnt take much to fkup the chain. I use the bike for commute only now. Shall I replace with the same or any suggestions. I counted 55 links.
Thanks

Thanks, I will look in to that as well.
I just located one on ebay bout there is no mention of 1640.
I dont understand what that number represents of.
In the RK chart the highest tensile is around 10000 for 525s.
I know that I screwed up because of neglecting the chain and let it go for a while with no lubrication. Otherwise it would have lasted much longer.
