good question

Rocky Mtn listed the sprox sprocket for the WRr but neglected to mention it only had tapered holes. I must have missed the Primary drive sprockets, I am cheap and surely would have chosen them due to the lower price . Since others have stated that they have both sets of holes, well they must.

One other good reason to switch to the tapered bolts is that a whole host of brands for multiple bikes come with the tapered holes that will fit the WRr.

New chain

With a 47t I'd order the 112 link, I am not sure a new unstretched 110 will work with a 47. even if it does, I'm not sure how much adjustment you would get?

That's my .02

I ran a 110 fine with a 12/13/14 x47 all depends in how wide your tire is. As you get closer the wider tire can come in contact with the plastic inner fender. I am now running a 112 with 13/48. Had to move tire way back in the slides. A 110 is an easy find chain likely stocked at many local shops. But a 112 would need to be ordered.

12 holes, 6 are tapered, 6 are counter-bored flat. Either style bolt will work.

FWIW, I always order the chain too long, like 116. Its only a few bucks more. Then use the chain breaker tool to pull the extra links out.Now you have spare links for the tool kit, guaranteed to fit your existing chain. And a 2nd(maybe even a 3rd) masterlink to make trail side repair that much easier. Not that I've ever had a chain need repair.

I'm guessing your tool isn't simply a breaker and is also used for installing rivet links? Do you just keep extra pins handy to rivet the links on? This wouldn't work for me as my breaker is just a breaker. I use clip links and just buy a few when I get a new chain. Problem solved.

The answer is probably somewhere in the 2000+ pages of this thread but that's gona take a while....

How high can handlebar risers be , before the cables become to short?

I run 13/47 with 110 links and have ordered a couple extra masterlinks to keep in my tool kit.

You can safely increase the height by 1 1/2" without getting into trouble. Any more than that, and you'll be looking for longer clutch & throttle cables and brake hose.

Chain length summary...

I try to take notes when I see important information discussed here, so that I don't have to search 2000+ pages. Sometimes I make mistakes, however.

I believe that the stock chain is 110 links for stock 13/43 gearing on the WRR. Is this accurate?

I have notes from two different inmates regarding chain length for 13/47 gearing. One says 110 and one says 112 links. So, is the 13/47 sprocket set the transition point from 110 to 112, with some adjustability left for stretching with wear?

All my notes for 13/48 or larger say 112 links, until I get to 14/52 where I have a blank. 14/50 apparently works with 112 links. 14/52 (3.71:1) is really close to 13/48 (3.69:1), the latter of which uses 112 links. But 4 more teeth on the primary sprocket seems like a big step up. Will 112 links cover it?

13/52 (4.00:1) and 13/54 (4.15:1) are the shortest gearing ratios I have seen discussed on this thread. I can't see ever need them myself, but someone has tried and found them useful. Does 13/54 required a chain longer than 112 links?

This may be a good place to add a recommendation to use http://www.gearingcommander.com/

Extremely useful when figuring out this kind of stuff. Has accurate data on WRR/X stock gearing/chain length/tires to use as a base. The big takeaway for me is that talking about gearing is pointless without including tire diameter (or circumference). It will also allow you to calculate what chain length is required for a given sprocket combo.
