It all depends on what kind of rider you are.
If you ride hard the chain will probably stretch faster than normal usage.

chain life also depends on environmental aspects, such as dust, rain, snow/salt, etc ... if you keep the chain adjusted properly, and how often you clean/lubricate the chain and sprockets.

Just keep the tension right and when it won't adjust properly, put on a new one. If it sits for a while check for kinks or the like but that's rare if you keep it clean and lubed.

Mine well lubed & on the loose side of specs yet kinked up, at least it didn't spit out the o-rings as others did. 15K miles, no rain, mud, just Az dirt road sand.

Yeah, I guess I've been in North GA too long, didn't think about the sand up there or further South and the salt up north. So revise what I said to include checking for kinking whenever you lube it :D
