The 543 is 43 ish and the 545 is 50 ish

They are not related to each other and are made in different factories

Both run good but the 545 is more powerful, costs, and weighs more. The fuel mixture on the 545 is controlled by a computer.
We should share what we know... someone may learn...

I wouldn't want a 20" as the main bar on a 50cc saw, as the balance will be bad, and destroy the nice handling of the saw.  ;)

Ya I'm thanking 18" max. Might be able to save a few bucks. That price is right in the dist. Catalog so maybe I'll try and haggle for a case.

545 is a very good saw & that's a good price. I'd want either a 16" or 18" bar on it myself.
