never mind I just found the chain length calculator.
Not sure what area to put this in but here it goes. I am going to put a 55t sprocket on my bike. I was wandering what length chain I am going to need since I am going up from 50t sprocket?
I just want an o-ring chain with 14/47 sprockets. Click and buy. Can someone help me out with a link or some helpful info?
Chains come in certain lengths. Not exact for all applications. So if exact link chain is not available it's best to buy a longer chain.Then "break" chain and remove extra links. Buy a chain shorter and you'll be adding extra links and master links to make it long enough. Not recommended.
Check out Procycles web page.
You could. But I'd get an idea of how many links first. Would suck to buy a long enough chain then remove to many links.
My last chain change was in the late 80's-early 90's. Then I rarely rode my IT's. Until my TW I've been riding a shaft drive for 20 +years.

how do i know how many links the 14-47 will need? was kinda hoping someone could chime in who had it. 14-47 seems to be a decently popular gear for these. I was told this is stock - OEM Sprockets Front-Rear: 14-50
OEM Chain Pitch-Links: 428-122. If i had to guess, 120 is what id end up needing?
Well Procycles says 120 "might" fit so hopefully someone who has changed sprockets will chime in.
Might should woulda coulda. Doesn't seem absolute to me.
