so i got a hardtailed stock frame for my ironhead, and although dude said it was stock length (yeah right), chain is now about 5-6" too short... short stretch, but frame is probly a 2-2.5" stretch i guess..

anyways, whats easiest way to figure out chain i need? besides takin it to a shop, LOL.. and can i add a few inches on to mine? or does it all need tobe new?

Put your short one with the center of the chain on the tranny sprocket and wrap it around so each end is on the wheel sprocket and count the number of teeth in the gap and that's how many more links you need. You should grind the rivets before using a chain breaker as the rivets are peened and if you forcve them though without grinding you'll enlarge the hole. You figure out your oil lines yet?
