Hi all, I am going to install a 47 tooth rear sprocket with the stock 13 tooth front sprocket and Dunlop 606 is the tire I am running. Anyway I bought a 120 link chain, I have read 112 link but have also heard 114 link as well, what would everyone think is the best?

Thanks.

There is a sticky thread at the top of this sub-forum that lists all the known implemented sprocket/chain combinations.

Put rear axle where YOU want it.
Thread chain up and mark where YOU want to cut it.

Cut it.

Count links.

Post what you end up with.


Simple.

Cut it.
This will get interesting when I get a set of Wheeling dirt wheels/tires for my X.

I like the stock gearing with the 17" X tires, but the R's 18" wheel and tall tire gears it up a lot.
So I'm hoping to run a bigger rear sprocket for the tall dirt wheel, but keep the same front sprocket for both rear wheels use. That means the axle will be forward for dirt, back for street. And I have to think about chain elongation with wear.

So I guess use the least # of links possible with the dirt wheel as far forward as possible?
