Help with 2001 KLX 300 timing chain/belt

I recently bought a used 2001 KLX300 and have been advised by a friend to get a new timing chain/belt... i dont know what type of timing chain/belt to get... any ideas?

If it's low miles, I'd pass on that. If the valves have been replaced, then the cam chain would be a good idea.

If you have just bought the bike , are unsure if you have a chain or a belt , have not seen the detailed invoice from the last service it´s better that you take it to the dealer for a service . If they take off only the camhaft cover they can check your chain stretch and your valve lash and inform you if you need any .

It´s much better to be safe than sorry .

Thanks both of you but i live in east africa and cannot get access to a dealer or parts very easily, so i am ordering the parts online and someone i know is bringing them down from the states. i am just trying to find out what type of timing chain/belt i need so i can order it online. or if you know where i could find such a part online?
