    Nice! Looks like you choose the best Summit color, green! (Or you picked the Kawasaki one) I'm guessing your going to do all 4 tires?

    the chain i used was like a twisted 8 and about 3/4 inch long, i did it 17 long, 7 wide, and put my first rung on the second hole of the first chain link and went 2.5 links, 1.5 links, 2.5, 1.5, 2.5, 1.5, 2.5

    in the pic what i did is in yellow, what should work depending on the chain (different sizes) i put approximates in red
    Hope this helps



    also this is pretty much how i did mine

    Yes it is jack chain, just checked as for the size, I had bought 20ft of it then realized I needed more but got the wrong size. Is was only slightly bigger than the first chain,i had to compensate for it but the size that was to big was size 12 Zink, I dont know much about chain size but the one size smaller worked better. I would think it would be a size 11 Zink, that is if they size the chain by one # at a time. Don't know for sure without going back. When I do I will verify. Hope that helps

    i think they go the other way on sizing. my supplier here at work does anyways. the #10 is way bigger. by their size chart anyways. for the price though i may pick up a box of #12 and #14 and see which works better

    I like the fact you added in the "tensioner" piece on the side.
