But did you study the rest of the chart?

Charlie, We don't want tuna with good taste. We want tuna that tastes good, smells good and puts out.

520 is 520 in my eyes. I would rather not take the chance.

I'm about to drop the hammer on a -1/+1 520 conversion for my 06.

From searching, searching, and doing more searching it appears that there are people who favour the 530 and those that favour the 520.

Many of the respected posters and contributors to the site advise (for many years) that a 520 isn't worse for strength than a 530 as long as its maintained properly. DID ERV3 520 chain appears to be chain of choice, with AFAM, Driven or Renthal sprockets to match.

Personally I'm confident that a 520 will hold up for my use (80% street, 20% track), especially as so many forum members are happy with this setup. However, it took alot of searching and learning before I gained that confidence.
If I wasn't confident in a 520 then I know that there are 530 alternatives out there that will work for me just as fine.
