## Will a 530 chain fit a 520 sprocket?

A 530 chain on a 520 sprocket will work just fine, a 532 will not. The differance between a 520 and 530 is the width, the roller diamiter and pitch are the same.

## What’s the difference between a 520 chain and a 530 chain?

A 520 chain is a smaller pitch chain. Pitch being the distance between rollers. The 520 is a lighter weight chain than the 530. That is why people switch to the 520, but it may not last as long as a 530.

## Will a 520 chain fit a 5.2 sprocket?

A 525 chain may run on 520 sprockets, but a 520 chain is too narrow to run on 525 sprockets.

## Will a 530 chain fit a 630 sprocket?

Yes the 530 is the same 3/8″ as the 630 chain.

## What pitch is a 520 chain?

0.625

520 Non-Standard Roller Chain

Part No. | 520 |
---|---|

Pitch (P) | 0.625 |

Pin Diameter (D) | 0 |

## What does 520 mean in chain?

(3) The size of a chain is designated by a three-digit number (520, for example). The distance from the center of one pin to the center of the next is called pitch. Pitch is represented by the first digit, which is 4, 5 or 6.

## What is the pitch of a 520 chain?

0.625″

Dimensions: Chain Size: 520. Pitch (P): 0.625″

## What is the difference between a 530 and 630 chain?

What is the difference between 530 and 630 chain? Generally, if you compare a 530 chain to an equivalent rated 630 chain, you will find that the heavier pins and rollers afforded by the longer pitch will result in a stronger chain construction, and higher tensile strength.

## How many links are in a 530 chain?

120 links

This one is a 530 series chain that is 120 links long, good for stock use or on that stretched out chopper (over 2″ stretch we recommend a 130 link chain).

## What’s a 525 chain?

For example, a 420 chain has a pitch of 4/8″ = 1/2″ (12.70mm) and a roller width of 2.0/8″ = 1/4″ (6.35mm). A 525 chain (the size my bike uses) has a pitch of 5/8″ (15.88mm) and a roller width of 2.5/8″ (7.94mm).

## How long is a 520 chain link?

Generally sizes are described as ‘pitch by length’. For example 520-118 – this has a pitch of 520 and is 118 links long.

## Which is better 520 chain or 525 sprocket?

I wana stick with the more durable chain. Right know on your bike you have 530 chain and sprocket size , it’s measured by thickness of link 530 is the thickess than comes 525, lightest is 520 hopefully that helps any question feel free to ask.

## What’s the difference between a 520 and a 530?

530, thickest and heaviest, 520 being lightest. You should make sure countersprocket, rear sprocket and chain of the same construction, and X ring would refer to the construction of the chain link seals. I used to have an SV. I went down one tooth on the front sprocket and it made a slightly noticable difference.

## How big is a 20 and 30 sprocket chain?

Originally these numbers specified width in eighths of an inch (i.e. a chain ending in ’20’ had a width of 2/8, or 1/4 inch, a chain ending in ’30’ had a width of 3/8 inch), but now metric dimensions are used. A chain ending in ’20’ measures 6.35mm between the plates. If the number ends in ’25’ or ’28’, the dimension is 7.94mm.

## Is the rear sprocket the same as the chain?

You should make sure countersprocket, rear sprocket and chain of the same construction, and X ring would refer to the construction of the chain link seals. I used to have an SV.
