Because of the rotational speeds that a sport bike sees unlike a car or even touring bike a lightweight chain must be used. These chains like all moving part devices see wear over time. Since this is only a single link chain (for weight) unlike a car which can have 6 or more parallel plates they have a lot of load over a small area. 600s can typically see a very stretched cam chain in 30-50k miles of normal road use. 1000s can go longer due to less rpms and touring bikes even longer.
Well I'm not sure about the Daytona, but the STR cam chain is multilink... Unless I'm missing something...
Life's so much better on a bike!
