I am in the process of doing a bit of fettling on a 2001 AT. The chain is a DID 525 ZVM2 and I’m struggling to find a rivet link with the Zvm2 mark.
Does it have to be an exact match or will other DID links fit. Sorry if this seems a daft question but I’ve only had anything to do with trials bike chains, not as critical. Thanks

Is that “yes it does have to match or ‘yes others will fit”? Sorry the question was worded wrong

Thanks for that. I’ve done some digging and there isn’t a match for that chain which was discontinued several years ago. Busters has got 2 chains in stock and I’ve messaged them about spare links, still waiting for a reply.

Looking at the DID 2014–2019 catalogues the ZVM2 (O-ring?) was likely replaced by the ZVM-X years ago.

525ZVM-X (X-ring)

Yes, I’m not sure if the zvm2 is o or x ring but I’ve been told that the links are not cross compatible by a DID retailer.

Is the chain you're fettling on the bike? if so how old is it? Or is it a new (old stock still in box) chain sans the link?

I split it and removed it to clean it, the bikes a 2001 and I’m pretty sure it’s the original chain, it’s done 26k but been stood for years, the chains in perfect nick, hence me wanting to just get a link.

You would think so but the sprockets are like new, no sign of wear at all. The chain has hardly any give in it at all lengthwise or sideways. I have bit the bullet and ordered a chain anyway as I’m not going to find a link. The bike has been stood for about 8 years but was motd before I bought it so there’s nothing major to worry about, it starts and runs as sweet as a nut and everything works as it should.
