DID ERV3 chain

IS anyone else running one of these on the street? Have you noticed anything different between this and other chains?

a chain is a chain. the diferences are strength ( gold ) and size ( 520, 530 ). By doing a smaller conversion IE: 530 to 520, your bike will excellerate faster. This is do to it being lighter, thus having a smaller gyroscopic effect.

i'm running that chain on my 520 conversion. Pretty nice. I've always only used DID chains though so i have nothing to compare it to.

I'm running that chain. Went to it from a stock 532. On the street with regular riding, it's not really noticeable that it's there.

Just wondering, I replaced my stock chain/gearset with a 520ERV3, AFAM front sprocket and a bimetal "stealth" rear sprocket and since the install things haven't been right. The problem was that I had to readjust the chain tension every other ride or so. The rear sprocket is trashed and came close to skipping out on me the other day, guess it could have been a bad heat treatment and the chain ripped it apart... Just to get back on the road I have an aluminum sprocket with the same tooth count on order, 48t and when that wears out I will reinstall a 525 DID VM2 and steel stock sprockets (16/46). *think aluminum sprockets last for 3-7k miles, so the next tire change will probly be the end of it.

Someone had mentioned that the ERV3 chains are pretty hard, and if it was indeed harder than a sprocket I theoritically would have had the problems that I did.

yeah sounds like you're right. The problem sounds like that sprocket. I replaced my chain and put two new AFAM sprockets on at the same time and my chain rarely needs adjusting.
