Changing out sprockets and chain on a 2011. 15T front, 44T rear, Sunstar steel with a 112 DID 520 VX2 Xring chain.

Swapped out the sprockets, turned the tire adjusters most of the way in, double checked sprocket to sprocket alignment and then put the chain on....won't fit! One link too short.

Should I have bought the 114 size chain? Ugh!

Damn, how in the world did I mess that up?! Must have been drinking while ordering.
That is one of the dangers of internet buying! I try to avoid eBay and Kijiji when quaffing beer, as the temptation to buy is not tempered by reason.
But I did say I try. Sometimes I don't succeed. >:)

can't just add an extra master link, you'll need an extra plain link as well.... a mating pair so to speak. it can be done but I'd sell/trade it to somebody that can use it & get the right one. for instance, the KLR uses a 106, you can always cut a couple out

yeah you need 114. One of the local shops did chain and sprockets when I had tires put on.. Should have done it myself, they put a 112 on! and it was like a tightrope. I bought the cheapest RK gold X ring off amazon which was like a 120, and cut off 4 links.

Yeah, 114 like the original... Your rear sprocket may be 2 teeth smaller, but the chain wraps only the rear half of it where there is just one lesser tooth.
