  • Chain Length?

    I just got my new 41 tooth rear sprocket, plus a new chain to go with it since the previous owner did not take care of it and it has some rust.

    My question is, with the 41 tooth sprocket installed, how many links should I have to put the rear axle bolt in the middle of the adjusters? I know that I can probably fit the stock chain length with the 41 toother, but I think it will be all the way forward leaving no room to go forward which might make my chain a wee bit tight.

    Please let me know so I can enjoy those second gear wheelies at 60 mph...on the race track only of course...

    It will shorten the wheelbase slightly, but it should fit nicely

    Just adjust the chain accordingly
