Adjustment of the chain on 919

Hello guys. A month ago i changed the chain with sprockets.
Chain 114 links
Sprockets 16 front and 43 rear.
After installation new chain kit, i saw what i haven't more place for adjustment.
Is it right?
Now i have about 3500 km on new chain and i soon will have to make adjustment. What should i do? remove the chain link?

I have a 2002 919 and removed two links to run 112. Apparently some model years have problems though. So stating the obvious just make sure before you cut the chain.

I recently put on a new chain and had the same problem. I switched over to the 17/44 sprockets and they sent me a 116 link chain with it. It was all the way at the end of the adjustment to get the right slack. Took out 1 pair of links to get back to 114.
