So I went online to find the correct number of links I should have with the new setup.
Using this site, I get 118.
So I mock things up and see where things are going to land. I can't get the pointer in the blue because I'd have to have an odd number of links, which you can't do because the master link is an outer plate.
So the choice is to have the blue range too far forward or too far backwards. I checked where it would be going forward and it's 2 markers out from the edge of the swing arm, or about 3~4 threads showing on the adjuster screw.
If I go to the next outer link, it puts me where the blue is at the edge of the marker, but still doesn't get me to 118 links.
IDK what the blue range is supposed to be, maybe an indicator that the factory length chain is worn or it's the range for the factory chain.
Who's done this conversion and where did you end up? I can't see that I'm doing anything wrong, but I can't see how I'd get to 118, looks like 114 is the only way to make it work and that puts the wheel in almost as far as the adjuster will allow.
---- EDIT ----
Just realized that if I use 114 links, I'm not going to be able to remove the chain for service. I'd only have about 3~4 turns of the adjuster, and that's not going to be enough to get the chain off.
Double checked, it puts the points well outside the blue marker. IDK how much more the axle hole has left, but that's the only way I can see where I can get the chain off for future service.
Am I doing anything wrong?
