Everyone tries to go 520... I just say stay with what works... Most people can't tell a difference from what comes stock anyway.

One point of 520 is to have a lighter chain. Lighter chain = less rotating mass. Less rotating mass = quicker acceleration.

Now if you're a bigger guy and do a lot of street riding, might want to go with 530. If your normal sized or smaller stature, definitely go 520. No reason not to, really. When and if mine gets updated again, I'll do 520.

Quick accel., steel sprockets for durability, 520 for track, oem size for the street. AFAM sprockets are great for aluminum sprockets, but a little expensive and not available in any kit. pm me if you need a deal on a chain kit.
