Can you tell me a link count for this ratio, I would count my old one but it got lost in the woods. Should I go with a O ring or NON O ring?

bikes differ- swingers are adjustable,different length swingarms ect...

just get a 120 link chain -( grind a link plate off )--( easy),and take out the links you dont need- (or buy a chain breaker)

O-rings typically last a lot longer, but a non-O-ring chain can have a greater tensile strength. There is more, but I don't want to start a debate on accuracy today, maybe tomorrow.

Take a look at this chart, and compare the numbers of similarly sized chains to help you decide what is best for you:

i always just buy the longest chain i can so that i have nothing to risk. you can always cut it shorter. its better then buying too short of a chain and then having to send it back and get another.

go to the bike shop and take a look in the back of the Parts Unlimited catalog it will tell you your stock gearing and how many links the chain is and if you want a higher or lower sprocket just look at what it says in the book and add or subtract the no. of links from the chain

Im at 14/50 sprocket. I found a site that told me what the stock chain count is but I cant remember where. It was either 118 or 116.
