99 YZ 400. What can I expect? Is pulling a link out of the chain worth doing.

if you pull a link out of your chain you might hit the tire on the swing arm.I added one tooth to my rear sproket and i wore a small hole in the mud flap from rubbing with a new tire . measure before you cut

It worked great for me, my tire is near the mudflap thing but in a couple years of riding it hasn't torn it off or anything. I also have the forks 10mm above the triple clamp... these two changes got it to corner way better.
