Chain Links

What is the proper way to count chain links. I was wanting to get a new chain instead of going to the dealership who has done it before I was going to order it myself. I has a 10'' xtended swingarm and was coming up with a figure of 70 links does this sound about right? Thanks flipmo

Lets just say...that's ALOT of chain!

What size are you looking for? 520, 525, 530, 560???
I always just counted the outside links and times it by 2!
Yep... but I usually just count the faces and double my number! If you are going to cut the chain yourself..on the bike... it doesn't really matter what the number is... you just put the chain on and mark where the cut needs to be and do it!
