17-44 520 chain conversion from kyle racing

I just received my 520 chain conversion kit from kyle racing. I chose the 17-44 tooth option with the zvm-x chain. I failed to asked when ordering if the 120 link chain needs to be cut down. Anyone that is running this combo please let me know how many links they are running. Thanks.

Look here, scroll down a bit, 114 should work but I wouldn't cut the chain until you have the sprockets installed.

Thanks for the input on the chain. I always install everything first then cut. I just needed a ballpark figure on links. Im new to the forum and the info on here has been indispensable. Ride safe everyone. Mike.

ya get everything on, then wrap the chain around and see how many you need to take off.

when in doubt (say your right between links) CUT LONG, then assemble without pressing the master link together. if still too loose at the proper range of adjustment at the rear axle, then go one more link.

welcome to the madness of wristtwisters

i take it your probably riding a 919?

Im on a 919 now. My brother in law bought one new in 2002 and still rides it. He talked me into it. I just sold my Suzuki M109r in favor of a more practical commuter/rip the twisties on weekends bike. Its so light compared to any other bike ive owned I feel like im on a dirtbike. Its an 05 with 4900 miles on it. Ive about gotten all the performance mods finished.

@LDH
Do you have the 17-44 kits in stock?
What are they going for now with steel sprocket?

ERV or ZVM chain? Is one of them vastly superior to the other?

ZVM is superior to the ERV, but both are way overkill for a 919
