New/larger rear sprocket - what size chain?

4 posts in this topic

It's time to replace the sprockets and chain on my 2012 WR450F, I have been running with the stock 13/50 sprocket set up and want to change to 13/52 (riding mostly tight woods, rocks & hill climbs). I know the stock chain is a 520/114, can I use the same length chain or should I order a 520/116? I'm assuming the 2 additional teeth on the new rear sprocket would use 2 additional chain links...not sure if this is correct?

 

Thanks for the help.

116 links should do it. I prefer to simply buy the 120 link chain and cut it to size. Save the extra links for potential chain repairs.
