Its changing the chain and sprocket size from a 530 to a 520 , less rotating mass= less gyroscopic tendancy=easier flickability, depending on what chain and sprockets you use it should shed about 3 to 4 lbs of unsprung weight.

if you want it to

basically the 520 is a slightly smaller/lighter chain and sprocket combo. you can choose to keep the stock ratio, or alter to your needs since you must purchase chain, front, and rear sprockets

Id recomend -1 in front and +2 in the rear... and yes, that combo will throw off the speedo

you need to get the speedo calibrated?
Bone stock the speedo is off by about 6 percent (a little less if you put a 180/55 on the rear). If you change the sprockets from stock, then that throws the speedo even further off. But, as RUFFSTUFF nidicated, a speedo recalibrator will fix that. Less than $100 for a yellow box and easy to install. I'd recommednt eh speedo recalibrator even for stock gearing because the odometer is tied to the speedo. Thus, with stock gearing, you're adding 6% more miles to your bike than you are actually riding.
