13/50 ratio guys, what size chain?

Postby Thedude1973 » 02:01 pm Jun 26 2013

The chain I ordered was only 108 link, I needed something longer for the 50 tooth rear. Just wondering how many total links those of you with 50 tooth rears ended up with.

I was thinking 114 and just cutting off excess links. But even better off I could just order a 110 or a 112 and not have to remove links.

I wanna say a 110 should fit BUT I always just buy a 120 and cut it down
(most places will sell you a 120 for the same money as a 110, and after 12 chains you basically get on for free, right Batsey?) :boogie:

LOL!!
Thank you, Julien D for all your hard work!

PLEASE! Do not "dip" PWK Keihin carbs in Berryman's to clean them! It will damage the internal o-ring (jet block gasket).

Just went to a 13 / 49 and 108 is too short. I have adjusted it all the way "in" and it's still a little tight. Hope to get a little stretch after a good ride.

Come on DIY, you know you only need to buy 11 to get a free 110 link chain. Plus it makes it a lot easier to find the master link!
