Chain length

Hi All

Am new to this RC51 lark, so be gentle please.

Changed my sprockets to 15/41. It has a new chain correctly adjusted but it is right back on the swing arm, do I need to take a link out to get it central, or does it normally sit right back with that sprocket combo?

as long as it isn't touching the back of the adjusters, and your tension is correct, it should be fine. that is a small gear set, but if you would feel better aboot it you can always pull a link out.
