I have an 09 zx-10r and want to do a chain and sprocket replacement. I want to change my ratio from the stock 17/41 and go +2 on the rear to a 17/43.
Stock chain is 110 links, so how much bigger chain do I need for the bigger rear sprocket, if any?
Can I get the same size and make the difference up in the adjuster?

Since this is a liter bike, I figured I didn't really need to go crazy on the sprocket sizes. I want more acceleration but not a wheelie machine either.
Any advice or tips are greatly welcome

I would think 112 links at most. You can always get a larger chain and then remove links as needed.
