Here is a basic cross section of the X-ring vs O-ring chains.  Heavy Duty chains have no rings at all.

'O' and 'X' ring chains still need to be lubed as the rollers will wear on the bushings and have exactly the same problem as non 'o' ring
The main issue is water/rust when they are not maintained
Personally, I see no advantage on a street bike although this kit would be worthwhile if I needed a complete set and may 'do it' in the future  ;D

For a stock 350 or 360, it is more chain then you would need. But for that monster you created Crazy, it looks like a nice setup.  I would do mine just for the bling factor if I was in the market for a chain.

Those sprockets look lovely.  In fact, I wouldn't mind just the sprockets in a 530 size.

I tried drilling my old countershaft sprocket, but it turned out to be a lot harder steel then the cheap bits I have. I didn't want to spend the $ for a bit that could drill it.
 I managed to make 2 tiny marks that are hard to see though... 8)

Once the front sprockets are hardened they are extremely hard to cut. The 530 are fine but way heavy for the smaller cc.  The 520 kits are a lot lighter with less rotational mass and cheaper

Yes correct.  Proper maintenance on any chain is needed (Cleaning and Lube) and will prolong the life of the chain & sprockets significantly.  I cant tell you how many people come to me and say this sprocket, that sprocket and chain are garbage and at first glance I can tell they never maintained it at all hahahaha.

In my experiences the O-ring and X-ring chains out last the Heavy Duty chains when properly maintained and I feel they are a smoother and quieter ride than the heavy duty chains.

Nice, I see that you have a 17T front sprocket option for the CB360s!  I'll have to hit you up when I get my junk running.

I will soon be in the market for a chain and sprockets again for my cb550. Any plans to start making them?
