    i tought it was oem....
    but when it arrived ... no yamaha logo... no yamaha number...
    I decided to install it...
    but ....
    not a good deal....

    well thats gotta be enough to piss anyone off, Did you smash all the valves?

    Id say yamaha wouldnt have chains in stock for certain year models they would just supersede the part number so even if you gave an 09 Part number you would more than likely get a 2014 built chain, i would be more than inclined to find a second hand chain and take a chance, would probably outlast yet another shitty 2014 chain.

    Hope your motor isnt too messed up mate

    That's a SBT junk knockoff, SBT is ok for stock stuff but there stuff is junk once you start going outside oem specs ie: modding the ski, higher rpms, ect

    I would email them and demand your money back

    I changed my oem chain at 185 hour.
    It has only one tooth broken.
    I changed it just in time.

    Yikes. Note to self; do not buy critical components for my engine from the generic bins at ebay.

    Sorry you're having trouble, send a PM to Jerry (Green Hulk) see if he can help you.
