530 chain on DL1000 ????

Question if TL1000 spec 530 chain and sprockets will fit on DL1000. The 530 will usually have better wear index and higher tensile strength than 525. Negatives w/ 525 include higher cost and extra weight.

I recently converted a Honda 1000 Varadero from 525 to Honda VTR1000 Superhawk spec 530 and am curious if this conversion is possible on the DL1000. Maybe some interference issue or sprocket fit issue or available gearing options would preclude this conversion with DL1000.

I realize that the latest DID ZVM-X top of line 525 chain is excellent chain and might never be worn out while I own the bike. Never-the-less, being anal about maintenance, I would like to know my options. My latest used DL1000 will be ready for new chain in a few thousand miles.

Hi ot - they're discussing that right now just up a couple pages. Consensus is that there's no problems. Go have a look.

I haven't found any substantial difference between 525 and 530 chains

BUT, there is a substantial difference between 525 and 530 sprockets and if you want to run 530 sprockets, you need a 530 chain
