Re: 520 chain and Sprocket conversion
Well, a 530 stock vs a good 520, the 520 will wear longer and need less adjustments. After my stock chain kinked at 18k miles, I did the conversion. Since the conversion with a DID VM X-ring gold chain I have doubled my chain adjustment interval by about about 2 to 3 times more miles depending on riding. I say go for it, but just get the best chain you can get your hands on. I can say I did feel alittle more accel and response after the conversion, but that could have alot to do with the fact my old chain was shot. The weight diffrence between the two setups when you hold them was pretty noticable.
