It's a very MINOR amount of rotational mass weight difference, especially when compared to a 525 (which most 600 and 750 ss bike come stock with)
Unles you're a front line racer that needs a half a wheel at the end of the front straight, you'll never notice the difference.

To give you an idea how little difference in weight there is, a 525 chain weighs in at 4.06lbs and a 520 is 3.69lbs for a CBR according to DID's website.

The main benifit to a racer that I see is that it is easier/quicker to get a bunch of 520 sprockets than it is for 525. But, just riding street, you won't have the need for 5 or 10 different ratios.

Keep in mind that it will make your speedometer and odometer read about 16 - 18% high.
However that an be fixed with a Speedohealer.
The 525 will last much longer than the 520 set up.
Give me a shout tomorrow and we can get you a quote on the set up as well as a Speedohealer.
Is this true for the older bikes too? I have a 94 f2 with a 520 rk chain and -1 up front. But the speedo cable and speedo, I thought, read directly off the front wheel. I don't see how changing the chain would effect what reading you get from front.

Do the newer bikes read speed differently or am I just completely missing something?

Most new bikes read speed electronicly off of the countershaft.

Changing the gearing on a bike like yours won't effect the speedo.
