Check it again KC - the chain he has is 525, he wants to use the
thinner 520 sprockets. Seems like a waste of a good aluminum sprocket
(they wear too fast for me on the street), but I can't see it cutting
on the chain - way too soft. The sideways slop might make it do some
funny things, but I've never tried it. Normally I just swap carriers,
unless Dave is using aftermarket wheels instead of stock SV parts in
which case it doesn't take that much to change sprockets.
