I would get 126 that would be about right
As the title suggests I'll be installing 15 front, 54 rear sprockets. Going with a D.I.D. 428 Pro-Street VX Series X-Ring Motorcycle Chain, D.I.D. 428 Pro-Street VX Series X-Ring Motorcycle Chain - BikeBandit.com . Stock is 122 and I have about an inch and a quarter space between the front of the wheel and the swing arm.
Should I get the 126 or the 122?
May I ask why? Going up on both ends negates the change.

oilhed I have new (used) rear wheel coming and I'm putting a Duro Power Grip on that. I'm going to put the 54 tooth on that and with the 15 in front of it it should be pretty close to stock, which I think is just fine for trail riding, stump jumping and such. I'm going to leave the the 50 on the stock rim/tire and with the 15 in front of that it should be adequate for road use. Then I can just switch back and forth and not wear out my Duro on the roads.
Wheel is coming with it's own brake shoe plate. I'll assess those shoes and drum when I actually have it in hand. Should be here Thursday.
I don't understand, why do you want to use that gearing.
Stock is 14/50 -> 3,571
15/54 -> 3,600
This is 0,8% longer as stock.
-->> There no sense to change to 15/54
Read my post, #5 above, two above yours.
DA, I kinda see Mac's point. Everyone i've seen put on a duro seems to be going 14/55 because of the tires weight and size to get closer to stock gearing and maybe a little better dirt performance. Been watching the duro threads for a long time. I f I had an extra wheel like you I would be doing the same thing. One for a duro and one stock, but my duro would be setup for more dirt/trail riding 14/55 or 60. Good luck on the mounting and let us know how it goes. On the chain, I would get a 130 and cut it down so you can have the max amount of room for that duro and still use it for your stock setup.
