Hi all, new gen 1 owner. Glad to be here.

I had a quick question about chain length.

Will a 108 links fit on a 02 SVs running 15/46 gearing...assuming the chain is new and not stretched. I searched but couldn't find the answer. I know it'll probably be really tight if it does fit

Thanks

I think that's going to come up short. Stock gearing on a curvy N has 110 links and that's a 15/45. More teeth in your setup so 108 links won't work.

I believe I"m using 108 links with 15/45 on a 2nd gen.

After about 10k the chain is still slightly forward of the middle point of the adjusters/marks.

That means I'm running a slightly shorter wheelbase and can't put a larger rear sprocket on, but don't really notice no ill effects.

15/46 will be way too close. The difference is only about 300 RPM, you probably won't even be able to tell
