How many chain links?

Im doing chain and sprockets this next week on my bike and im going up two teeth in the rear from 17/41 to 17/43. I know the stock chain is 112 links but i have read here and on other forums it may or may not fit. Was wondering how many links i should expect to use? Is their a formula for this? Or am i just going to have to measure the new chain on the sprockets and go from there?

My 13 650 has 118 links I've been told. Just got a new OEM chain and it is 120 so I will have to cut it down. You need to put the year and model of your bike in your in your Signature so folks know which bike you are talking about. And yes you can set your adjusters loose and see what chain length works.
