Chain

What is the expected life (miles or months) of the chain that comes with our bikes?
Also, what length (I guess in links) fits our NM4?
Lastly, is one type (sealed, x-type, etc.) really better than another, or is it just a matter of preference?
Thanx for anyone's and everyone's input.

Just took my NM4 in for it's 16,000 mile service. Noticed chain was starting to slap as I accelerated. Needed a new chain. Not sure about where you live but here in Florida we get a lot of sand in the air which probably does not help mush on the life. I just ordered the Honda replacement. As I have a service plan with my shop they fitted it for free. But belt and new sprockets (They advice replacing both when you change the chain) was around $300. Chain alone was around $200

16,000 miles ALREADY! I need to touch base with you before you hit the 50,000 mark!
