Tire to close to linkage????

I have a taller front and rear sprocket on my 450. The rear tire is really close to the linkage :) Can the tire rub it if the suspension is compressed :p I took it for a quick ride and didn't notice any rub marks. It does rub the black plastic mud guard. :D

I just want to make sure that I dont come off a big hit and go over the bars :D Its like a 1/4-1/2" from the likage :)

Add a couple links to you chain and move the wheel back :)

I agree... I wouldnt want my tire that close to the guard. Just add a couple links to the chain or you will end up wearing out that guard. Its important to have that there or you could damage your shock.

Where can I get some extra links? Is that a normal thing that a bike shop would have?

Duz uh bear schitz inna wuds? :)

I would think a bike shop would have some "cut-offs" kickin around from other bikes they have put new chains on. Just bring them your chain so they can match it up and ask them for another master-link. You can add the new piece of chain with the extra link. You will only need a very short piece to move your tire back.

I would buy another chain and cut it to the correct length!

Bingo! If you replaced the sprockets, you should replace the chain with them.
