130 links will be way too long. You can easily press/cut the excess links out with your proper chain tool.

Talk to Mar on here. I got a Motion Pro chain tool since I just replaced my chain and sprockets and that tool makes it really easy.

I just got a 520 kit for mine (16/40), pretty sure the chain is 110 links that I got.
Double check! I don't think that will be long enough.

I ordered a 120 link chain and I believe I used 112 links. This fits every combination of 16&17 front and 41-43 rear sprockets. Currently running 17/43.

I really liked the 16/41 combo, but I wanted a tighter wheelbase.

I haven't used the Motion Pro chain tool, but I wouldn't recommend trying this without at least the rivet tool! You need it for not only a proper rivet, but the master link is a "press fit" as well.
