Anybody know who makes the stock #530 chain for the K5/K6? I plan on taking a link out (since I have a 16t front) and need to buy the appropriate rivet-type master link. Thanks!

I wouldn't think you would have to take a link out to go -1

I agree 100%. Unless the chain is stretched beyond specs you should be able to adjust without any problems...

When I went to a 16t front sprocket, I had the move the rear axle back a bit to compensate for the smaller sprocket's diameter, else my chain would have excessive sag. This lengthened the wheelbase as well. I want to get my original shorter wheelbase back, and this would probably require subtracting a link.
