it depends how hard you ride and the maintenance you do. usually the front sprocket wears out before the chain. there's a little more to just lubing the chain though. keeping it with the proper slack is another important aspect. on a R6 with a 520 pitch chain you could get 10k maybe even 12k. if you ride it hard it may be done around 7k. on a big hp bike with a 520 it could be as low as 3k miles.
do you have an owners manual? all of this is in it. if you don't you can get them free (download) on yamahas website.

Re: Another R6 with a hole because of a broken chain.

just remember to keep it clean, lubed and adjusted correctly. clean and lube every time you ride in the rain.

Re: Another R6 with a hole because of a broken chain.

Fortunately for me I was very lucky when it let go. I was on the highway and all of a sudden the bike felt like it was in neutral. I coasted to a stop at a scenic overlook that came up at a perfect time.

This happened today....
Busted my tail piece and the chain guard. The chain also slapped my leg/boot. Happened at around 75mph full throttle in 2nd.

Re: Another R6 with a hole because of a broken chain.

jesus you guys should seriously consider NEVER riding a motorbike again. Chains letting go is an anomally... not a reality. Or maybe join the R1 forum because it seems to be a plague there.

So I just posted a vid on how mine broke and what damage it did, but for some reason the link won’t work here. Maybe because this vid has cuss words
