We run 520 on the liter bikes all the time. I had my last for 3 years. I'm
not sure what the deal is with wear on a street bike.

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.
