Two new chains wear slower than one?
Ha! Dull aren't I :geek:

As Andy says with 1% wear on your chain you should be OK on a new cassette. It all depends on the wear on the cassette really.
Put your new chain on your most used gear on the casette & use the "pull" technique at the 9 o'clock position to see how much the chain moves on the teeth. You'll probably not notice any real movement at 12 or 6 o'clock, in which case you'll be fine.
If the chain tries to climb the teeth when you pull all you're really going to achieve in ruining your new chain fairly quickly.
