What size chain do i need for this bike

Why don't you just take off the old chain and take it with you to the bike store, since you have to return your new chain anyway and buy a new one. You don't even need to know the size, because they will match the old chain with the new chain. No guesswork required.

Hi Matt only help I can give is look along top & bottom of chain for a tensioner it will be a round rubber wheel. If you cant find a tensioner it will more than likely you need to cut the chain down. If your not sure how to let me know & i'll let you know how. Also DO NOT USE IT while chain is loose as if you do & chain comes off you can crack engine case which then means a new engine

I sharpend my chain and filed and flip the bar around. And it still want cut. Do I need a new bar and chain?

I dont me to be rude but two things spring to mind, firstly have you put the chain on backwards? the chain on the top of the bat should have the sharp edge facing away from the saw ( turns clockwise as you look at it from the side of the saw ) and secondly have you sharpened it correctly ( right angles, and taken the depth gauges down to the correct hight ) there should be no need to replace the guide bar, at worst a new chain will do, let me know if you need to know more about chain sharpening.

Replacement chain and bar size

To purchase a new chain you need to know a few things, the pitch of the chain on your saw, .325/.375/.404, then you need to know the gauge of the chain 050/058/063 and finally the drive link count, this is the inner drive teeth, this will automatically give you the lenght, for example .325/050/64 drive links is a standard 15" chain for a Husqvarna semi pro saw.
This information should be etched into the guide bar, if not your local dealer should be able to tell you if you show him the chain

I need to replace my chain and sprockets for new ones but i do not know what length of chain i need. I am buying a 520 chain if that makes any difference to the length at all, Thanks.

You can remove the existing chain and thn measure it, thn buy a new one with a little + side coz the sprockets will be new also, and well there is always allowance for adjustments on the bike's swinging arm.
Hope this helps!

Changing chain on gsx750f 2000 model / katana in usa

you said it all, most bikes have a master link, if not you need a chain breaker, which you can also use if the new chain you purchase is to long. lift bike on center stand, loosen axle nut, then loosen chain adjustment screw nuts on both sides and turn them so the wheel/axle moves all the way forward. connect the old chain to the new chain and pull it through (while gearbox is in neutral). adjust the chain adjust screws on the axle the same amount indicated by the markers on swing arm until chain has a deflection of half inch up and down in the middle at the tightest spot, try turning the wheel a few cycles to find it. then lock axle nut then tensioner lock nuts.
