I would think maybe somewhere around 130 links but that's a complete shot in the dark.......check in the drag racing section and PM a few of the guys on there that have extensions or extended swingarms and i'm sure they'd be happy to help and give you a better and more specific answer.

Exactly what I did. I cut off 5 links to be at 62.5" wheel base. The EK ZZZ chain is the strongest chain out there and if stretched get the 150 link. At 9" over you may only need to cut 3-4 links tops.
