I assume you mean drive chain...the XX uses a 520 chain at 80 links, and changing it is easy..just loosen the chain and break the chain at the master link, remove old and install new chain reconnect with new master link, which should come with a new chain....if not make sure you order the right size master link. To make it easier you can connect the new chain to the old with the master link and as you pull out the old chain it will feed the new chain for you, as long as you are in neutral.

Ok just picked up my chain.

The fellow said to move thd adjuster all the way forward then put new chain on. This seems absurd to me because then if i want to go back to a 14 or 15 from the 13 i would not be able to.

Do you recomend just counting out the 80 links including master and cutting there?

Thanks

Also, the chain is a d.i.d racing chain 520ert2. Is that good enough?

Are you just changing the chain? Not the sprockets & chain? I thought that if you changed the chain you had to replace both sprockets also.

The ERT2 chain is good, that is what I use and has lasted 2 seasons, yes it is recommended that you replace sprokets with chain, but I have just replaced the chain before if the sprokets look good. If I was running a 13 and had the possibility of one day going to a 15, I would cut the chain if needed, but I would do it near the end of adjustment on the tight side so you have ample room to loosen to go back to a 15. the only problem you may run into is when the chain streches, as it will the first couple rides, if you reach the end of adjustment and the chain is still too loose, you may need to take another link off.

Another thought, if you still have the 14T, put the 14 on and cut the chain so you are at middle travel in adjustment, you should have enough adjustment to go up or down one tooth.

So 14 tooth adjust all the way forward whichever goofy number way that is and install chain. Easy enough thanks!
