New Chain Help - Installation
Posted May 15, 2007 - 07:23 AM
I've recently purchsed a new chain and sprockets for my 02 YZ426. I went with a 14/50 setup and a 120 link chain with a master link. I'm still learning new things all the time and I've figured out I need to remove some links in the chain.
I counted the old chain that came off the bike and it has 113 links, with the stock 14/49 setup.
2 questions: 1) How to I remove the necessary links, with a chain breaker, grinder..any ideas? 2) Anyone have this setup and know how many links they have on their chain.
A buddy told me I need to add or subtract links based on how many teeth my sprockets have so I'm wanting to make sure I do this right the 1st time so any help would be greatly appreciated!

If you have a chain breaker, use that. Otherwise use a grinder/dremel tool.

Thanks for the help. I was able to grind down the 6th link to end up with 114. I then punched out the pins and was able to get my new chain installed! New sprockets and chain are installed and good to go.
Thanks for the help!
