I told Knight before... that we could probably do the job in 2hrs but I take my time and do all we can so it will take 3hrs.

With cleaning everything from the rim, swingarm, cush drive, axle, ect.. It took just that 3hrs. And about 15 mins to clean up the garage.

It was a good duty for sure! I was glad to help and gain that much more expierence with the SV. Always a learning expierence.

BLING BLING. Did we change the gearing also? What did we go to? I have a 14 tooth in the front right now, but am considering going 520 with 14 in front a +2 in rear.

Chain and sprocket looks great.

Hey guys, yeah it's pretty much awesome The new chain looks great and the new sprocket gearing (14F 46R or -1F +2R) is treating me pretty well so far too! Working with Gas was fantastic, he really knows his ***** not to mention just being a super cool dude I was really happy to have someone as knowledgeable and as him helping me with my first major wrenching project on the SV. I def owe him big time, I was running late for dinner so I didn't have the chance to buy him the pizza I promised but I'll get him back sometime soon

So you decided not to use the continious chain? Why, is the 530 a stronger chain?

It now is a continues chain. It doesn't have master link rather a replaceable rivit link. Technically, the 520 is weaker. The 530 is wider and therefor more material for more strength. The idea being that you don't need all of that and that with the 520 it will be lighter and therefor you'll have less drivetrain hp loss!

Further, the sv650 sports a 525 stock. So its reduction isn't as much. However, remember we are talking about spinning/rotational mass. If there is a 1lb weight reduction its actually "X" lbs x pie (3.1459)

Bird...knight did a -1front +2 rear

It depends on the tinsel strength of the chain. Some 520's are stronger than the big heavy wide chains.

depends on the metal / alloy in the chain, and pins.

so we're rating chains by tinsel strength now? gonna go add more tinsel to my chain then.

I always thought it was tensile. hmm, you've given me much to think about.

This is true... but if you are comparing DiD to DiD... the 530 is stronger than the 520 of the same model/brand.
