2004 Honda 919 112 links?

Hey everybody, so I went to change the sprockets and chain on my 2004 Honda 919 yesterday but couldn't get the 530 112 link DID chain on it. I've read that 112 links will fit, but it seemed like it was one link too short to get on.

I've got stock gearing on it ( new JT sprockets), don't know if that makes any difference.

Can I make it fit or do I need a 114 links?

Adjusters moved all the way forward? I don't remember the link count, but I also changed gearing the last time I replaced my chain and sprockets.

if you love your motorcycle, set it free.. if it comes back and hits you.. you highsided

I've got the adjusters moved all the way forwards. I found somewhere else on the forum a guy says that with the bike on the ground and with the axle out you can put the chain on and then lift the bike and slide the axle back in. I'm tempted to try that but don't want to find out I can't push the wheel back enough to get the axle in.

So why did you buy the 112 link chain? Was the old chain at the adjuster limit?
I ask because that used to be an issue with the 2002 919 model. I know it's an issue with my 2002. From later model 919's I've seen that seems to not be an issue.

If you didn't have an adjuster issue with your old chain I would not try and force the 112 link chain to work. Exchange it for a 114 link capable chain. New sprockets shouldn't be the problem but I'm not familiar w/ how JT sprockets compare to OEM.

Good luck,
Mark

I had a similar problem with a new chain that the dealer cut too short down in West Virginia years ago. The tire was rubbing on the interior of the hugger when you sat on it. He just added a couple of riveted master links to alleviate the problem.
