I'm rebuilding my CB450k1 after a long (very very long) restoration. Now I 'm wondering which chain to run. I don't find any references on the original chain, but I assume it's a plain 530?

But I'd love to run a x/o-ring chain. I did the same thing on my CB500f and it fits with about 1mm to spare. Will a o-ring like the 530VX DID fit or will it eat away the engine case?

It would probably be easier to get a standard 530 chain. You should still get very long chain life out of a standard roller chain. You'll have to replace both sprockets to go 520. So, you'll have to go aftermarket , probably special order as well.
