Then measure the chain link to link. If it is still in spec, cut out a link or two and keep going!

This thread is reminicient of a "best oil" thread. Chain length is not, nor needs rocket science type debate. "Use what works best for you" definitely applies here.
If I changed sprockets, and if I were sure I could cut x links off my new chain and it would work/fit/function, I would cut it off in the beginning because 1. I am lazy and don't want to rivet my chain twice in its life, and 2. Master links are not free, and I, unfortunately, am not independently wealthy. .....but again, your bike, your call
