I have a 2013 Kx250f and recently bought a new chain. I have stock gearing (13,50) and took off some links to add the new chain on. Took some off, but when I did that I noticed the chain was too short for my sprockets so I just used the chain adjuster screws and the chain fits tits, I’m fine right ? just needing reassurance because the last thing I need is a chain flying through my engine case lol Photo

It should be fine, You may notice a bit of a handling difference depending how far forward the wheel is but as the chain stretches you’ll adjust back so it may get better with time.

Last resort , add another masterlink. Kinda sketchy though.

Next time cut it one link long ,you can always shorten a chain, adding a link is another story...

Looks tight on the stand. Are the adjusters all the way in?

No they still have a good 1/2 inch, and it still has its 3 fingers of play between the swing arm and the chain

Don't run it tight. Make sure it's at spec for your bike. Having a chain snap unexpectedly isn't worth it.

As long as the chain doesn’t snap on me I should be good

Lol...says the man who's never run a cheap roller chain. I own bungee cords that don't stretch as much as a cheap roller. When I went to x-ring I was amazed. Chain/sprocket life quadrupled.
