8" Stretch, Chain length?

Okay i have an 06 with stock sprockets and im wanting to extend it the rest of the way out but im unsure of the correct length needed to do so... 530 chain if that helps... Hopefully someone can help me out. Also is Volar a good chain? Im looking for a green chain to match the bike.

Oh and i dont care to hear how stupid it is to stretch a bike, its mine, not yours thanks!

Thanks in advance!

I just did my friends 08 out 8 inches and we used a 150 link chain and I cut maybe 6 or 7 links off . He also has stock gears . Im running green EK chain I think I paid $160 for it off of ebay for a 150 link . I wouldn't cheap out on a chain and from what iv been told EKs are good .

EK MVXZ, you can get it in all different colors, gold green blue red etc. Stock pitch is 525. Get 150 and take out links. Why do you want to go to 530 chain? Are you running some power adders to it? If youre not, youll be just fine with 525 pitch.

Just as an extra food for thought, EK as makes the ZZZ chain, which is probably the strongest chain on the market you can get. Its only available in gold or silver though

Harbor Freight. Its like $5. You just need to grind the head off of the rivets before breaking the chain

GTFO noob! When you make my payments, then you can decide what mods get done to it.
