Washers between the fender and swingarm I heard, I had them leave my 520 convertion chain a little long so my wheel is all the way back.

just use some washers as spacers and you can keep it on.

Take the fender off. Or spacer it up some. As far as chain lengths go, you start affecting your suspension setups. Example, I used a longer chain for damp/wet tracks ie you are lengthening the wheel base by just a little.

well if we're gonna go there...

the larger tire takes away from the swing arm angle so addin a link or two actually just gets things back to normal! :wink:
