I know occasionally, people will use two or three master links, to add length. I've hear running two is o.k., but I'm not sure about running three.

Try a 49 T stock gearing or buy a new chain. Last thing you want is the chain to break becoming a lethal weapon.

I've been running two masters on a Regina ORN6 for two years. However, as external widths of chains tend to vary, I don't recommend doing this unless you can get exactly the same brand and model of master link to match the chain you're running. So, in your case, unless your memory gets jogged, either get a new chain, or use your old gearing.

Uhhh, you are supposed to change both sprockets and chain all at the same time. Shame on you! :lol:

But anyway, you can run another master link as long as you have another inner link. If you don't, you need a new chain.

Not necessarily. If the original chain was allowed to run over 1.5-2% over the specified length, the sprockets probably are worn to the point where they need to be gone, too, and that's what usually happens. But I've worn out a number of rear sprockets with a chain that was still under 1% stretched. It just depends on the situation.

You can do the same thing without the blocks, if the chain is of a length that will fit both sets of gearing. The advantage to the blocks is that you don't have to move the adjuster screw so far when changing over.
