520 or 525 chain

I have a 2001 F4i. I am in the process of replacing the chain and sprockets. My bike uses a 525 chain, but the chain I want (chrome chain to match my new polish job) is only available in the 520. Will this have any negative affect on the performance of my bike. Will it deplenish the life of my drive train?

you will be good to go on a 520 chain. but remember you also have to change out your sprockets as well. if the chain is from a reputable company it will last as long as any other chain. its also gonna be a little lighter, and if you lower your gearing you will pick up a few hp as well.
i went to a 520 conversion on my f3 and i love it
