Greetings Dan,
It is time to change out the chain, some of the links are getting stiff.  In doing so will upgrade to the 530 unit.  My question is should I consider changing the swing arm bearings.  I have no idea about the service history of the bike, however it has about 60,000. miles.

Getting the old bearings out is usually a real pain in the ass. They're rusted solid in the swingarm and you usually end up grinding/cutting them out. Personally I would just leave them alone unless they're coming apart. Of course you would want to grease them while you have it apart with a good waterproof grease. Putting a zerk fitting in is a real good idea so you don't have to take it apart again to grease them.
