XV250 drive chain upgrade

Hi, Folks,

I'm thinking of ordering / upgrading my xv250 chain from DID 520DS -114LE to a DID 520 Pro Street X-ring VX2 Series Natural Chain 520VX2120FB

I know 114 links is the proper length but is that the proper size fro the x-link replacement?

Does the FB at the end indicate the type of master link or something else????

As I plan on keeping the bike, the cost will probably work out in the long run - less maintenance and longer life.

Any thoughts or maybe just an o-ring chain?????

I just read the compatability chart on eBAy and it says that the chain in not compatible - I thought 520 chain is 520 as long as its tensile strength is acceptable.
