I got 10k miles out of my chain and I cleaned it probably 3 x in that 10k miles.

is it a good idea to run a 520 chain with the power these bikes make?? i was told no way to do a 520 chain, i'd go through it in 5k mi the guy said. any body run it for long mileage?? i do ride on the track a bit, and i'm kinda ham-fisted with the throttle, so i dont wanna rip up my chain!!!

Is the DID a stronger chain? I did notice that the DID is more expensive.
I'm not sure which one is stronger but there's just a minor tensile strength diff between the two chains:
DID erv3 = 8660lbs
EK srx = 8500lbs

The tensile strength of the EK 520MVXZ is 9300lbs but a costlier chain me thinks.

For reference to all, the RK gold GXW is 8800, as I recall.
