  • chains?

    k, i have to break the chain as part of this swinger swap anyway, so i am looking at just replacing it (i am 2 up in the rear adding a couple links at the same time would give me back some adjustability).

    i just replaced the rear sprocket and the front is like new so i am going to just replace the chain (yea yea, staying with 530). i was looking at the DID 530VM. couple questions...what are you using and how many links am i looking at. i think 104 is stock so a couple extra would help the adjustability, say 106? where is a good place to get the chain and tool all at one time?

    are you getting the extended swinger, or am i right withthe tlr swinger? if so, the chain should fit in stock length....

      noper, not extended and yea it would fit, but if i am breaking the chain to mount the swing, it would be a good time to put a new one on. and since i went up a tad in the back, i am pretty much all the way forward on the rear axle

        Rivets! No clips, clips bad.

        I think most chains come with at least 120 links in the box anyway, so you should be able to drop the right amount 1st try.

        Stick with DID, I've had back luck with a Regina in the past, and I guess the RK's are pretty good too.

              :dunno EK, I've had no 1st hand experience with them. You must have got Regina mixed up with this lager.
