Yep, bigger and smaller sprockets use more or less chain plus hold it closer or further from the swing arm. That further negates the factory procedure since nearly every WRR eventually gets a sprocket size change. My gage system has to be adjusted both after a sprocket size change, and after a ride height change using the shock threaded clevis. The clevis changes the drop when the arm is all the way down. Problem is my 180# ass won't quite level (parallel?) the swingarm. Nothing is simple when you have a machine that is sensitive to chain slack. At least these machines don't use the older style "snails'. On my KLX250s the increments were huge. Every chain I bought would wear to a point that was too loose, but tightening it up one indentation was too tight. Of course in 5 years of off road riding that machine never needed a slider. Go figure.
