Cut the chain, when my chain wore out at 35 k I changed whole drive train.
Put 1 tooth smaller rear sprocket to increase topend speed a touch.
Heaps of uTube for putting joining link in

Re-gearing / sprocket set results, can be found via https://www.gearingcommander.com. Enter your bike details and then the sprocket setup that you are considering. You will be able to compare stock gearing (aka rpm / speed) vs your planned gearing selection. Also remember to disable your browser's ad-blocker, for the site to display correctly.

OEM chain ('15 650XT) works with a 48t rear and OEM 15t front.

My 15 650XT has a 47 tooth rear sprocket. I thought it was original...

Anyway, my 16 tooth front came in while I was camping last week. going to put it on soon.

Yes, 47t is standard rear but I wanted something a little lower for dirt work, so I went to 48t on rear rather than going smaller up front.

Gotcha, I don't do enough dirt to go that way with it.
This past week I camped 3 nights and 4 days and put 850 miles on the Wee. I stayed on 2-lanes except for going around Little Rock.
I like to go long distance ...talking SS1000 stuff. I think the 16 tooth will do just fine for me!
