yes it has a chain and no it does not need replacing. there are no service time intervals on it .in less you can hear it making a lot of noise then i would replace the chain and all the sprockets and tensioner and water pump at the same time. if you keep the oil and filter change every 3000.miles and keep it serviced you can expected to get 300,000 miles on it ,i know i do all my own work on mine has 300,000 +and still running strong good luck
