525 chain?

Just curious.....
Has anyone tried a 525 chain on their Versys?
Will it fit?
Is there any advantage?

I'm just asking because I noticed the V-Strom 650 runs a 525......

Don't do it unless you also convert to 525 sprockets. 525 has different size, shape and strength specs than a 520. In short it means they are beefier.

Absolutely no advantage on Versus and would add a few disadvantages. Basically adds extra strength you don't need on a 70HP engine, with the penalty of increased rotational mass.
