This error usually occurs when it takes longer than a certain amount of allotted time to serve the request.
While I'd prefer it if we could serve 200 tweets at a time on a mentions timeline consistently without throwing a 502 (the time will indeed come), you are likely to get better, more consistently successful results by asking for a lower count value. Alternately, if you receive a 502 as a response to a request, wait a few seconds and then retry the request -- more often than not the first attempt will warm the cache up for you, readying the data for the subsequent request.
