    Stretched 9". 140 links running 17/43 now. Still have my 45t rear sprocket sitting here, track day Saturday. Will this chain work to see if I can lower my e/t? -jake

    What's up bro did you get to put that 45t on? How's that 17/43 ride?

    Oh yes it did, maybe moved 1/2-3/4 inch forward. Now the bike sits 16/43 with that full stretch, and with the 45 on it moves forward maybe 3/4".

    O ok how's it running? Do you like that gearing setup? I went with 17/46 hoping that gets the jump I'm wanting on the 2/3rd gear rolls and track days

    The 17/45 did decent but 16/45 has me rolling through the quarter at the very top of 4th which I think works
