If your checking it, pull it out and see if it is loose or worn or ony links are broken or damaged. If it is replace it.

If it doesn't appear to be in bad shape, it may not be a bad idea to replace it anyway, since it is a cheap sense of security and you have already done the hard part with it already apart. If it breaks it gets spensive.

I'd replace it. They're around $85-$100 its worth not getting stranded! Plus If it breacks it could take out your chaincase and thats another $100-$200.
