520 Conversion Kit Help PLEASE ASAP

So i GET my 520 conversion and I open up the box . Its from sum of all parts.
1) The front and rear sprockets are vortex but the rear is 7075 T6 Aircraft Aluminum ... not sure I am secure with this . ALSO I AM OK With needing a new one in 3K Miles but I just dont want to snap teeth

2) The front is ok its steel

3) My Biggest concern is the Chain was not what I ordered its an O Ring Chain. I do not mind replacing it in 3K Miles but I do not want to Break it .

Any one got feedback Please..... I have to replace this now cause My chain is kinked and causing my bike to pull right when on a wheel .. do not notice it under accel with both wheels cause I just dont ...

that's perfectly fine and normal, you shouldn't wear out a sprocket or chain in 3,000 miles unless you go off roading and don't take care of your chain.... cleaning and lubricating it you can last a LONG time.....

your not going to snap any teeth off a vortex sprocket unless your adjust way wrong or just plain and simple wear it out to death.

I use PJ1 chain lube, either the blue or black label.... I also clean my chain with WD-40 or even simple green if i have it, some prefer not to use the wd-40 because of one reason or another but i ran a ERV3 chain on my bike which has x-rings but it took over 12,000 miles of VERY hard abuse before I finally bought another one....

I ordered X rings but got O Rings .. Need to install it now cause my chain is damaged . I clean my bike and chain when I wash it with simple green .. I use full strength on the inside of the lower cowl and chain and discs to get the grime off.. I HATE A DIRTY BIKE .. My bike still looks like a showroom bike ..

Not if you don't keep the chain in the right slack condition...I blew many teeth off my Vortex for lack of maintenance at the drag strip..if you don't do that thing maybe....I would be pissed though if I paid for a X-Ring chain and got a 0-Ring..the cost difference can be significant along with the performance/weight/longevity and especially strength on a X-Ring chain with 520 Conv...don't forget your on a High HP bike and that is important when going down in size that you buy a chain that can handle the HP ...just saying you should have sent it back if you didn't get what you ordered.
