I’d like to go the route of -1 on front sprocket but retain the stock chain since my 2016 has 1k miles. Don’t want to get a kit with new chain already when the stock has a lot of life. I realize the stock chain doesn’t have a master link but assuming I’ll need to take one or two links out and install a master link to shorten going down one tooth otherwise will probably be beyond adjustment range. I’ve not found a master link for the stock chain, anyone know of a site to buy compatible master links for stock chain DID 525VZ-114LL

If you remove 1 tooth from the front sprocket, you'll only need to adjust the rear wheel a small amount. Never measured mine but it seems like it was only about 1/8".
