Measure the width of the rollers on the chain, the distance between the inner plates...

If they're ~1/4", you have a 520. - (derived from 2/8")
If they're ~5/16", you have a 525. - (derived from 2.5/8")
If they're ~3/8", you have a 530. - (derived from 3/8")

Stock F4i is 525 chain.
Depending on how stretched the stock chain is you might be able to run +2 in the rear with -1 in the front.

sprocket thickness for chain

520 = .227
525 = .284
530 = .343

if a chain is stretched, it will NOT properly align with a new sprocket
EXattachmentphp?attachmentid50972&ampd1322709489

if run too long, this could possible be the result.

I suggest ALWAYS replace both sprockets (steel) when you replace a chain, then the chain length can be properly sized for the sprockets used.
