Adding Swingarm Extension....?

My new extended swingarm extensions are 4" to 6"..

If I go 6" over, how many links do I need in the chain?

Thanks...

If you have Pics of yours stretch please post, and with description of how many " over is it...!

I don't remember how many links I ended up with, but I can say I started with the 150 link ZZZ, set the wheel where I wanted it, wrapped the chain, then cut it.

Sorry I can't help any more than that, but here's some before and after pics. It's set at 5.5" - 6" over.

Sounds about right. I just counted my leftover piece of chain.

Started with a 150 link 530 chain, have a link of 18 links left, so that means on the bike is 132 links.

132 - 112 = 20 links, and I am right around 6" over.
