Posted this over on the xr250 board and got nothing. Hoping my blue brothers can help me out
I'm working on my cuz's 87 xr250. Through neglect both sprockets, chain, rear wheel bearings needed replacement. Got all the parts from rocky mtn. Everything was going smoothly until I tried to put the chain on...too short. Went with the stock gearing 13,48, 520x108 chain (right out of the catalog and confirmed w/the sales guy). With the axle all the way forward it looks like it is 1 link too short..even if I could get it on it would be too tight. I counted the links on the old stretched chain and it was 108 also, although it was about 3 inches longer!
How do I figure out how long the chain needs to be?
