Fitting a 17T front sprocket will pull the rear wheel forward a couple of  notches. You won't notice the difference in performance. 94 horses will still get you off the lights pronto...

I enjoyed yours and the posts of others. I had a similar experience many years ago. Decided to do my own chain etc. You can get a little flustered once you start grinding away, as there is no way back. Then to find the tool you bought was a copy, and starts bending. Grrr. However, spending an hours labour charge on a good quality tool really is a no brainier.
If I were you, I would definitely make time to remove the extra link, as it will need doing for sure. Thanks for the posts
