This may be a dumb question but i wanted to be sure before I spent the money. I just replaced my rear sprocket and I went from 49t to 51t to get a little more on the low end. The front is stock at 14t. I haven't bought a new chain yet. Will a 120 links be long enough? Its a 99 YZ400F btw.

It should be long enough, you will probably have to put those wheel blocks up farther though. I went to a 50t on my yz and the chain was fine

The stock 114 link chain will probably be long enough. A 120 certainly is.

Measure twice, cut once. :confused:
