How much will moving the rear 5mm forward due adding one tooth to the rear affect handling? If it affects handling should I add a link to the chain or move the forks up in the clamps?

Not noticeably.

Yeah maybe if your a pro rider or a very experienced test rider you MIGHT notice a difference other wise no..

Thanks for the replys. I thought moving the forks up or down 5mm or changing the sag 5mm is a somewhat big change. Thats why I thought moving the rear wheel would be noticable. I would usually just go test this myself but i don't get much track time. I liked the way it handled before, so if it was going to make a difference I would have just purchased a new chain and left it a link longer.
