This may be a stupid question but I honestly don't know :)

I want to put a 52 tooth sprocket on my 02 Wr426 which is now a 50t.
Will I have to buy a new chain guide to acomodate a larger rear sprocket?

I have stock now.

Thanks for the input :)

ncmountainman, I was looking into one of those Fredette chain guides. What did you have to modify? Did you shave the block down?
