However because many of us are open Tuesday - Saturday and prefer to have as "normal" a life as possible with 2 days off every week for ourselves and our people, we close on Sundays and Mondays.

If you can wait till Tuesday we can take care of it for you, if not, there are a few shops, Sams included, that are open on Tuesday.

FWIW, I would not have recommended going to a 520 conversion on a street bike, it'll wear out faster, and there's no real measureable performance gain to be had from it on the street..
What exactly do you mean? If you are changing only the chain, then I see no problem with it... but if change the sprocket gearing, then I agree with you... I did the 520 conversion with the one tooth down in the front sprocket... I noticed a little quicker acceleration, but nothing dramatic... I ate through that sprocket and chain quick... I went back to the stock sprocket setup, but retained the 520 chain... the 532 chain for my bike is expensive....

I mean that a 520 set up will wear quicker than a 525, or 530 set up.
If you have an R6 with a 532 set up, you can go to a 530 conversion for a lot less than what just the 532 chain costs.

I am honestly not sure what that means. We support members of MotoHouston, HSN, TSBA and CMRA with discounts, but Andy doesn't visit message boards.
