ive used the 520 DID VX2 on my 08 1000 motor and it held up just fine. but i did like the evr3 much better. i liked it enough to buy another one. the first one ended up with about 15,000 hard hard miles on it (long enough for all the gold to be rubbed off from cleaning and more than half the 0 rings missing) and the only reason i changed it out was because i had to replace my sprockets (aluminum with 15,000 miles also) and i got a good deal on a chain and sprocket combo. still have the old one laying around for a spare. either one will be fine honestly.

if at least one motorcycle wasnt irreparably harmed in the creation of the bike, its not a streetfighter!

A 520 chain is just fine. Just a matter of getting the right one and proper maintenance. ANd the right sprockets... Aluminum doesn't last as long but I'm looking at hardened steel. So...
They also have the budget to change a chain every weekend. I don't think the loss of longevity is worth the weight saving, but it's a personal choice.

Tip in case you don't know, follow the engine bolting pattern and spacer location procedure proscribed in the manual religiously, or your frame/engine mount will crack after a couple hundred miles, or even when tightening.

I'm still diggin this build

I do plan on reassembling the beast with the FSM next to me on the shelf, open to the page. Marginally accurate torque wrench in hand.

I am to... but I absolutely must stop spending money on unplanned shit at this point. I still need mirrors, paint, a few gaskets, TIRES, oil, coolant, filters... I'm sure I'll find some other costs along the way as well...

I contacted sprocketcenter.com this morning to get their opinion on a 520 xring chain since they didn't have a handy dandy kit listed for my bike with a chain picker...

Got an email back a few hours later with

Michael,

Thanks for your interest. We just revamped our entire web site and are adding products every day.

We just added a 520 kit to the t509/595 section.

http://sprocketcenter.com/index.php/...hain-kits.html
So I bought one :p They had a deal on the DID 520 ZVM-2 series chain too so I went with that. -1/-1 since the front comes up a touch too easy with -1/0

FUCK YOU WHORE!


All the instructions I can find say "undo the 2 nuts then tap out the shaft"
I've railed on this fucking thing with a plastic drift and a dead blow and it hasn't moved a hair.

On the brighter side of things...
I checked valve clearances...


Only 1 tighter than spec, and the .127 was pretty loose and the .152 could almost fit. So I'm gonna leave it for next fall since there plenty of work to do here already :p

Looks like this thing was maintained a bit. Thats a bonus.

Old chain... pretty used. Glad I has new on the way.

Nothing to grip till it's on it's way out

If it doesn't budge I'll grab a friend and get em to turn it by the hex socket on the other side while I rail on it. That should do it as it will turn, with much resistance.

Just needed to vent about the twat being a twat It doesn't help that I'm running on like 3 hours of sleep

Get an impact driver on the end and spin that while you twat the end. It'll go.
