A 520 chain is too light for that much power, I was running a 530 on 110 hp bikes and hardly having to touch them, in fact despite the wet weather here the stock Regina chain on my Trophy lasted 40K, granted that's an astonishing amount but there you have it. I usually average around 20k, that's on 1200 Bandits, a 750VFR and a ZX10, prior to that I had HD or BMW's so it's a different set-up.

The XB9SX looks sweet. Probably it is too much power for me so I won't be getting it as a first bike.

Have any riding experience at all?
