Has anyone here with a 2021+ S or GT done a 520 conversion on chain and sprockets? If so, any impact on performance of your quick shifter?

I ask because I've read that QS performance can be impacted when proper chain tension is not maintained. If this is in fact true, it makes me wonder if a lighter chain would amplify or negate any impact caused by improper chain tension.

Even if you haven't done the conversation, any thoughts?

No issues with my 21 plate including 2 teeth more on the rear. It is however like most bikes with quickshifters really important to maintain the correct chain tension. I prefer it being on the minimum setting as the quickshifter seems to perform better. The 520 pitch conversion has zero impact on either. Hope that helps
