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.
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.
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.
