Joram: With the 17T front sprocket, were you able to create enough slack in the chain (by moving the axle forward) to accommodate the larger sprocket?

This is a mod I really want to do as I cannot abide what sounds like a swarm of bees under me at speeds over 60 mph!!

As I weigh 135#, I am not worried about the engine managing to haul my weight with 13% taller gearing.

Has anyone who has fitted a 17T countershaft sprocket had to fit a longer drive chain or is there sufficient slack in the chain with the rear axle moved fully forward to accept the larger countershaft sprocket? I really want to do this conversion but am not inclined to buy a longer chain to accommodate it.

Thanks,

Ralph
