      110 links means the wheel will be pushed forward so close that even if the chain fits it may be a little too tight.

      114 links is usually good for the GD250N/R bikes. So if you check your swing arm after fitting 110 chain, make sure there is least 30mm free slack on the chain when the bike is on its side-stand.

      Don’t do it while its on a paddock stand as that pushes the swing arm up and gives false checks for slack.

      Thickness of the chain is fine,  even Xring is known to be fatter than a standard HD chain, but all in all,  the 520 pitch will still be a 520 pitch chain  (or else it just won’t go in the sprockets if it was a 530 chain etc.)

      Hope this info helps and welcome!
