The stock gearing is 17/39 and the chain is a 525.

I'm no dragracer, but I don't think going to the smaller 520 chain/sprockets would be a good idea for the repeated hard launches.

I have stock wheelbase and I have the 520 conversion with Vortex sprockets and I run 15/39 and 16/39 gearing. I drag race as much as possible and even do a little street racing and haven't had a problem.

the new 520erv3 is designed for liter bikes so it will handle the abuse much better than the older erv2 which was for bikes up to 750cc..

I've got the ERV3 on my bike. And I've changed to 520 chain/sprockets on every bike I've had in the last nine years or so without a problem. But I do trackdays/roadracing where you don't get all the sudden jerks on the chain like dragracing.

You guys that drag race on a 520 chain... I'm sure you do your chain maint. more often, and buy a damn good chain. Common sense, no matter what size chain you use, no keep up means it will break.

If you use a 520 for drag racing, you better keep a consitant maint. schedule with it, otherwise you could be replacing your cases.
