I install a 530 chain and sprocket on friday. After a few days of riding. This is the one thing i notice about going to a bigger chain. I have sato rear set. the shifting is now a lot better. its smoother. I mean a lot smoother. When shifting. I do not use the clutch. I no longer have the problem of the chain being sloppy after a ride. I know it add weight. I can skip a few meals to fix that :lol: . The chain is 114 links. The rear axle is way back now. I need to take a link out. On a straight road. The bike is more stable. Going into a turn. The front don't seem to stick. My suspesion isn't the same. It wasn't set up with axle so far back. I have one question. What is the pro's and con's of a longer wheel base.
