520 conversion on track bike

I'm gathering parts while overseas for a track weapon. (gen3) I am debating between 520 or 525 pitch on paper the 520 looks suitable but im not convinced :headshake, anyone have any horror stories they'd like to share before I commit

The plan DID 520 ERV3 -1 in the front driven sprockets I'm guessing around 175Hp with cam work deck gasket exhaust ecu flash.

520 is fine. Get a premium chain and a premium rivet master

I been running 520 for about 9yrs 40Kmiles + and drag strip too, last year finally stretched my bike just a little 140links on the way $185 shipped DID EVR3 strong.... and this may be my 4th or 5th chain bought don't know lost count .....so I guess I like them even if I am replacing them season to season it seems.
