New Chain Time

Does this look ok for my Raptor?

If I change the vehicle from V-Raptor to Raptor it says not suitable, yet has both in the description?

The Raptor and V-Raptor have the same sprockets and chain, so it's ok to order one for the other and vice-versa. If I remember right it's 16T front and 40T rear. You might want to consider changing to 17/39 to match the TL1000 gearing and some say it reduces chain wear as the 17T front, being a prime number, doesn't land on the same chain link all the time.
