Thanks!!

Any ideas what the difference is on the chains where it says 520 or 530? I'm looking to keep it stock.

the 520 and 530 numbers represent the pitch of the sprockets. Think of it this way a 530 chain is thicker than a 520 chain. So if you were to go with a 520 chain and sprockets then you would have a thinner set up than someone running a 530. Running a 520 reduces the weight of ur chain and sprockets by about 1 pound but that can be pretty significant when you reduce the weight of the moving parts of your bike. Going with a 520 should increase throttle response and if you decided to change you teeth of the sprockets it will give you more accleration or top end whichever you prefer
