  5. How many chain links would i need?

    General Discussion
    Im changing my sprocket ratio from stock to a 15 in the front and a 47 in the back. Does anyone know how many links I will need for my chain? I was gonna buy a 120 link chain and I just want to make sure that will be long enough. Also does it matter weather it is an o-ring x-ring or z-ring chain?
