Let us know what other bikes you guys guys are interested in having some 520 Conversion kits for.

KZ400. Would also work on 440s with belt drives too for those guys who can't find belts. As long as you have the sprockets its a direct swap. KZ 750s share the same sprockets as well.

Don't know for sure but I think the kz305 and maybe 200 are the same as well.

are you supplying O-ring chains with these kits?

Yes O-ring chanis are coming with the kits.  They are the EK 520 SRO5 chains

what are the benefits going to a 520 chain?

The 520 kits are much lighter than the 530 stock chains which is less rotating mass.  Also, with the 520 kits you can run the o-ring or x-ring chains unlike the 530 sprockets on most bikes.

What would the odds be of getting a kit for the XS650?  Only option I know of at the moment is MikesXS.  I've used their sprockets and haven't died yet but would be happier knowing where they come from.

17 front 34 rear is stock gearing with some running 30 - 33 rears to reduce rpm and vibes.
"Quality . . . you know what it is, yet you don't know what it is. But that's self-contradictory. But some things are better than others, that is, they have more quality. But when you try to say what the quality is, apart from the things that have it, it all goes poof! There's nothing to talk about. But if you can't say what Quality is, how do you know what it is, or how do you know that it even exists? If no one knows what it is, then for all practical purposes it doesn't exist at all. But for all practical purposes it really does exist."

Yea the XS650 I believe they can cut no problem.  I will check tomorrow with them and let you know.

Are you going to sell the sprockets separately? I prefer using a non o-ring chain.

Sure we can sell them separately.  Roughly $25 for the front and $60 for the Rear.  Anything under 34T is a bit cheaper.

What's the difference between o-ring and x-ring chains..? Isn't o-ring the best or am I outdated?

the difference is the cross section of the sealing ring. An o-ring is circular. 2 sealing surfaces, one on each side plate . The X ring cross section is like an x, so it has 4 sealing surfaces. Also, the X ring puts a little less force on the side plates, so there is less friction.  Less friction is good. Absorbs less HP. Some of the chains play with the thickness of the legs of the "x" to make it seal better, but still keep reduced friction.

X ring and their variations are the latest greatest. O-Ring is "old" technology.

But o-ring is better then no o-ring. X ring is a little better yet. 

A new 520 chain is actually stronger then the OEM 530 chains on these bikes. A new 520 chain should last a lot longer then the old heavy duty 530 chain. The old chain had no seals at all. Dirt would get into the rollers and wear out the cross pins. A rubber sealed chain doesn't have that issue, and the steel is even stronger. 

If I hadn't recently purchased a new chain and sprocket, this setup would of been the way to go.

Also, at least on the CB360, most O-ring/X ring 530 chains are wider than the stock heavy duty chain, and will rub on the side case.  The 520 chain is narrower, so no rubbing issues.
