from what I understand.. the second two digits are the width..
You'd be running a narrower (525) chain on wider (530) sprockets..
although I have no first hand experience trying this, I'd say thats asking for trouble.
Hope that helps.

the 525 chain is lighter and thinner than the 530 its a little weaker but sport bikes run it so it cant be too terrible of a thing
