80$ mistake>

Recommended Posts

I just bought new 116 link chain for new sprockets. Even after spending an hour figuring out how many links to remove (adjusting axel length etc.) I managed to remove to many links and the chain is way too tight even with axel cam at 1st click:bonk: . Is there any way to add another link or am I forced to buy a new chain? I don't want to prematurely wear my sprocks because they were spendy.

What about using a second master link , riding until chain stretches a bit and then removing second masterlink. Would it be bad to have to masters in row if I took it easy? Or should I just ride as is and take it easy until chain stretches a little? Any experiences would be useful.

LOL, been there before...

You can also get half links if you need them I think. I just put a chain my my buddy's 73 sporty and we had to use one of those.
