I just pulled my rear wheel off to fully inspect/clean sprocket/chain/spacers. They still look new and this is at about 14K miles.

I lube my chain every 400 miles and fully clean & lube every 800 miles. I've only had to adjust for chain stretch couple times.

However, if you wanted to do the 520 conversion, then I can see the point. But (changing) for just preventative maintenance, just stay on top of maintenance and don't worry about it.

ps. Keep in mind, we have clear & sunny weather 95% of the time. Outcome may be different in rough weather conditions.

what brands are normally good ? I like and will run SuperSprox sprockets  .. what kind of chain should I get ? I have had great luck with both EK and DID and what size fits on the z900 ? stock is 525 but just because I will run a 520 setup if I keep her that long to need to ..

Bonus question.. how long do the stock chain and sprocket normally last ? That is an open ended question and chain maintenance is the key but 20K is about when  I have needed to look at swapping them out
