Hey guys, need some experienced opinions here. I ordered a chain and sprockets from MotoVan, through EMS. I wanted stock chain and gearing, which is a 530 chain with 15 42 gearing on my 93 GSXR750. What MotoVan sent over is a 520 chain.
I reeeeaaaaallllllly need a new chain before the weekend, and I'm not sure I can get the 530 by then. I may be stuck with the 520. My fear is longevity. I ride a lot, and have been told by the guys on Gixxer.com that my bike will trash a 520 fast! But I don't really trust the big internet boys on Gixxer.com.
I understand there will be some negligable performance gains, but I measure performance by reliability! Haha. Is the tiny advantage in performance, worth the loss of chain longevity? Anyone care to comment?
