Once I changed the countershaft sprocket I just had to adjust the chain a little. If a bigger rear is needed then the chain will have to grow a few links for sure.

thanks for the quick response fellas. i was considering going to a 13/50 set up, but i think that might be gearing down a little too much (also need to consider increased chain wear going smaller on the front). since dropping one tooth in the front is like adding four to the rear, i figured i'd choose something in between....adding just two to the rear (going to a 52) and leaving the front at the stock 14.
mmdoctor, its exactly what I'm going to do, but I will wait till I replace my chain. If you dont want to wait, just but a whole new chain now, save the stock unit if you use the 50 sprocket.
