You can always measure the chain you have, here are the specs. Keep in mind that the width is the width of the roller.

520 5/8 inch pitch, 1/4 inch wide
525 5/8 inch pitch, 5/16 inch wide
530 5/8 inch pitch, 3/8 inch wide
630 3/4 inch pitch, 3/8 inch wide

You will have to change the sprockets when you change the chain out so really at that point you could go with either 520 or 530. A 520 will handle the power of the 800 very well and is slightly lighter than the 530.

Good luck

Actually I just wanted to change the sprockets out to change the gearing as the chain is still in great shape. I wasn't sure what was stock. Thanks.

It should also be stamped on the side of some links......likely not every link, but say every 8 or 10 links there is probably a number.

Are you trying to gear the bike up or down?
