why are you removing the two links? because the chain is worn or just to shorten the wheel base? if it is because the chain is streched, don't do it and risk the chain breaking whiole going down the road.

and to answer your question... yes generally can if you buy a new master link and a chain breaker/riveter. There have been a few reports of certian 919's that can't getway with removing the 2 links see here https://wristtwisters.com/naked-bikes...112-links.html

I run one tooth smaller on the back sprocket and 112 link chain, in stock set up I don't think I would be able to run 112 links, without removing the little washers from the adjusting bolts.

My axle is almost all the way at the end of the adjustment range but the chain and sprockets look like they still have a lot of life in them. Plus shortening the wheel base will improve turn-in, no?

So not all 919s can use 112 links, is there a specific way to find out if mine can? Its an 02 non CA model...
