520 pitch, the length depends on the sprockets your using count the links you've got on there now if your keeping the current sprocket sizes

any decent 520 chain, cant remember the number of links, but its either 108 or 110 depending on wether its an H or an L

i normally end up buying whatever 520 chain i can get my hands on and cutting them down to the length i need

DID520ERS chains are cool .. as long as you remember to lube them before each session.

Ive always run non 'o' ring on my race bikes and the two new bikes are the same. Just replace half way through the season.

because the weight of the chain is like half, and the friction non-existent

seriously, on a low powered bike, its actually noticeable.

just lube before each event and its fine

On the race bike I run an RK 520 H ring on an alloy rear sprocket & std front sprocket, I pick the H ring as they are cheaper & I usually replace the race bike chains every 2 seasons anyway......+ the H ring seems to be more flexible than the O ring when handling the new chains.
