gearing, chain length question

I,m about to alter the gearing on my 929 from standard (16/42 in the uk) to 15/16 front and 44/45 rear. My question is, will my 108 link chain still be long enough. In fact i am converting to a 520 chain which is 112 links long so i can cut it down if need be

Re: gearing, chain length question

I have 15/44 gearing (stock is 16/43 here) and the stock chain fit just fine. I think it will with 15/45 also. Do you have a 190/50 rear tire? If you've changed to 180/55, then the 15/45 might be a bit of a problem...not positive about that, though.
