Chain Length Adjustment

I just went from a 12-25 to 11-21 and was wondering if this change is enough to look at shortening my chain? Don't want to adjust it if I don't have to, but if you guys think I'll get better performance from adjusting the chain, then I'll looking the instructions and do it.

You're ok, I never shoten the chain when changing a cassette, you may want to install the old cassette when doing hilly riding. You won't see noticable performance increases by shotening the chain 2 links or so. Just ride it and have fun.
