Gearing Change- Chain Length Question

Hey Folks,

I have Gen3 and am planning to go +2 in the rear. I am staying with the 525 chain gauge. However, the stock length is 110 links. How much longer would I need to go? I think that 112 lnks would do it since the sprocket has two extra teeth, or would I need more? Anyone done this and remember what length chain to use?

Thanks!

Stock - 17/41 with 110 links = sprocket distance = 25.2

Custom - 17/43 with 110 links = sprocket distance = 24.87 (-0.33)

Custom - 17/43 with 112 links = sprocket distance = 25.49

What this means is if you have the room to move your axle
up 0.33" you can use the 110 if not use the 112

If I remember correctly from mine, +2 should be fine with the stock length.

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.
