How many Links?

2003 919...16/45 sprockets. How many links do I need in my chain? And, where is a good cheap place to buy a chain?

114 on my setup. Stock is 114. I run either a 15/45 or a 16/45. currently at 16t. I went with D.I.D.s best Xring chain I think its the 530 ZVM2.

I got it at my local shop, but I paid like 210 or 230 out the door for my rear sprocket and the chain and the install. Sprocket was machined to fit as well. I think the chain was like 140. but It was a while back.

160 here but you will need to shorten it and get the rivet.

I have had the chain for almost 5k miles and got the rear sprocket at the same time.

Lowest I've seen is $152. Please tell me I can just slap it on with 120 links and go. I don't know how to do all the shortening and junk.

I would agree with the D.I.D 530 xring. Dont go cheap on chains!

120 would be way to long. sorry. Check with a dealership on when it would be to get it and have them install. there are chain tools available, but I think they are like $100.

Do a search for XRMikeys chain and rear sprocket. I think his was the regular xring and a little cheaper.

EDIT: heres a link he has the one I have

For an extra $3.5 they will make it a 114 http://www.sprocketcenter.com/p/1023...ing-chain.html

this is not a place to go cheap it is not worth it, also if you dont have the tools, like said before bring it to the dealer, it will be cheaper in the long run. THis job is near impossible to do it right with out the tools. you are buying sprockets too right?
