If you need a new chain and you plan to do a 520 conversion, then go for it. If you're thinking that the 520 is going to get you noticeable acceleration difference due to less rotational mass, you're probably wasting money. Don't get me wrong, there is an improvement, but the average rider isn't gonna notice it much if at all. The best bang out there to increase acceleration is spending $25-$30 on a -1 front and you will notice a significant difference.

yes... if it's an '11 it's already a 520.

But some of the kits call it a "conversion kit" as it'll swap out the stock 525 on some older bikes.

That's what I was referring to... didn't look to see what year the OPs bike was... more of a general comment and pertains to those with older bikes running the bigger chains.

I have heard -1 in the front puts more stress on the chain do to the smaller diameter. I've heard this straight from a racer face to face because I asked him.

Are you saying with no change in the back? Or a -1+2?

correct. It doesnt matter about the back. I was just refering to the front being a -1. If he's wrong or right, I'm not sure, but he seems to know his shit and is respected in the bike world over here.
