again, this all depends on regular chain maintenance. Of course the 520 wont' last as long on your R1 like a 530 would, but if the chain is adjusted and lubed properly, it'll hold up for a good number of miles.The Woodman said:I heard the 520 conversion eats up sprockets super fast is this true?
I got like 17,000 miles on my 01 and the stock chain and sprockets still look pretty good. The chain is starting to stretch a bit but that is all
I agree, this is the 2nd. bike I've used a DID 520ERV2 chain & sprockets on, and I've had similier results (+24K of hard use between 2 bikes) :yesnodGXRKLR said:I had 13k on my 520 with -1 +2 before I totaled the bike. Chain and sprockets had very little wear. DID chain and Sprocket Specialist sprockets. But I do track, comuting and touring with mine.
