    Looking to replace the primary chain. I've always used Diamond products but I've seen another, Tsubaki is the name. Anyone have any experience with them?

    Very good chains IMO. I never used their primary, but have used several for rear drive chain.

    I have no personnel experience, but some friends have run them on their sport bikes with no problems. My question is if there is no money savings why not use the OEM primary chain?

    Stick with the OEM chain. Why are you replacing the primary chain anyway? I know guys with 75K miles rolled up and still running the original chain. If the mileage is high enough to have worn the chain, the sprockets may need to be changed as well.
