Chain Length and size

I am going to replace my chain soon on a 06 10r and decided to check with the pros on this site before I bought the chain.

I did a search here and have seen two different chain link numbers 108 links and 110 being used as the correct length

To really confuse the issue I spoke to the parts guy at the local dealer and he said 104 links. Because he has screwed up my orders before I consider him the least reliable

So to those who have gone before me what is the link count on the chain for the second gen 10r..

I am going to order an RK x ring chain..

Thanks in advance

I dont know the exact link count on standard gearing but If you are buying a new RK Chain, they come in 120 Links Standard out of the Box. I just bought a new one for my GF's bike yesterday. So you have nothin to worry about.
