I am about to go to 15/45 on my 07. I know the stock gearing is 16/43. Is the stock chain pinch 530/525/520? And more importantly, if you have your gearing set up like this how many links did you have to cut off the chain? I would just order one of those Driven or Vortex power up kits with the pre-cut chain but I want to get a different custom rear sprocket.

Stock chain is 520, 112 link.
For 15/45 stock length should work.

if your staying the same as far as teeth in the rear? and you somewhat took are of your chain you should need to replace the chain i would think... i would say just replace the rear sprocket to something that your looking for

i've got -1/+2, got it all changed in one go, including chain, i went for renthal, one thing you do really want is a speedohealer as with out it you'll get like speedo readings messed up by 15% or something that ridiculous...
