Going the front sprocket route the chain size does not require any shortening. If you have time to read, https://www.stromtrooper.com/dl1000-...um-dl1000.html. Gear commander will give a good indication on what to expect under ideal conditions with the different sprocket combinations, https://www.gearingcommander.com

Thanks for that. Bike just got new chain and sprockets before I got it. Will definitely consider that at the next change
