Book says it's Regina, chain says it's SSS, certainly it's Super Stretchy Sh1t, 6k miles and it's stretched more than a thong on a fat lass and looser than a whore's draws. Are we being conned by Aprilia's penny pinching, i know Regina aren't the best either. DID for me

Didn't you change your gearing? When you changed gearing you should have changed your chain at the same time or you greatly reduce the life of the chain.

On a side note, my RSV4 did come with the Regina chain, though I don't know of any bike on the market that comes with one of the premium chains from any manufacturer.

I have not had any issues with stretch from the stock Regina chain, but I have less mileage than you. I also personally like DID chains as I've never had a problem with them.

6 k is not that bad . Dont know it you kept it clean & adjusted properly but if you have that much slack probably has not been taken care of correctly . A loose chain will only compound stretching problems ..

If you've worn your chain anywhere near the wear limit in 6k miles (on a street bike), there's a strong possibility you over-tightening your chain, or, you've never lubed it.

Nope no maintenance issues, usually get around 14 k miles from a chain and sprockets. Ill speak to the dealer and query why mine didnt have a Regina chain, The sprocket teeth are in very good nick and the chain rollers are worn internally suggesting poor sealing ??
