14/49 Sprocket Change.

Postby luigiscar7 » Sat Dec 01, 2012 9:04 pm

I'm going for it. I've done enough trolling to learn a good deal, but I need a definitive answer:

With a 14/49 sprocket change, am I going to need a 110 chain, or will stock size (108) work? (No, I'm not using an old chain on new sprockets. Just need to know what size chain to order)

Thanks in advance!

well you can order a 120 and cut it to the size you need! I'm pretty sure that if you are -1 front and +2 rear, it'll need a 109 but just to be on the safe side order a bigger one and cut to the size you would need.
I like being corrected! Do it!

Well, it can't be a 109 - there always has to be an even # of links in a chain. In order to get an odd #, you'd have to cut a link in half.

My avatar is very appropriate for situations like this :D
110 it is then...but if the 110 stretches then he might run out of space to tighten it
my 108 stock chain was so stretched that it was about an inch longer than the new 108!

Still looking for a definitive answer from someone who has done the mod...

vashtsdaytona has done it and here's what he said:

Re: 110 or 112 Link chain for a 14/49 conversion?
by vashtsdaytona » Wed Sep 14, 2011 10:18 pm

110, but you can even use the stock 108 chain if you want. i did it fits fine but others perfer 110

i promise either will work. in the most common questions forum there is a topic about gearing changes. read up on it


You can message him on youtube or the forum, if you wanna be sure...same username in both places

hope it helps

Ok, I decided to revisit this thread, so other's who may have a similar question would have a definitive answer:

After replacing the stock sprocket set up (15/47) with my new set up (14/49), I installed a new 108 link chain. IT DID FIT, but the rear tire needed to be adjusted all the way forward. I'm assuming with some expected chain stretch, it would probably end up near the middle of the adjustment range. Unfortunately for me, I installed the chain incorrectly. (see: stupid ebay seller didn't include pinch pin for master link in package, so I assumed it didn't need one.) Lucky for me, I still had both of my legs attached, and was able to get a replacement chain in 110 link. Again, this was a brand new chain. The 110 link, when correctly adjusted, fell near the middle of the adjustment range. I've since put about 600 miles on my 110 link chain and readjusted it. It's now sitting about a 1/4" past the mid point in the rear tire's adjustment range. I expect to have plenty of room with my 110 link, even if it does stretch further. I hope this is helpful.
