Answer: 
You may have difficulty when attempting to ride in the large chainring and the largest sprocket. Although this is not advised even with the correct length chain due to lateral chain distortion causing premature chain wear, in your case you could also damage the rear derailleur tension spring.
Unless your current chain is too long, it is not advised to fit a shorter chain.

Answer: 
There should be enough links for your application. Most BMX bikes have about 15 links left over, so allowing for the extra few teeth (28x11 as opposed to 25x9 on a BMX), plus the extra length of your chainstays due to using a bigger wheel you should be safe with one chain.

Good choice of chain by the way.

Answer: 
Yes, the 3/32" version is fine to use on larger 24" and 26" frames with a single speed setup. 28/11t should be fine.

Answer: 
Any of the chains below will get your bike back up and running again.

If your cassette is also quite worn then it is always advised to replace the cassette at the same time as the chain.

Shimano 105 compatibility

I have an Ultegra group set on my road bike but notice the chain is a Shimano HG CN-5701. Is this Ultegra or 105 quality?
Also, I wish to change my rear cluster from a Shimano CS 570011-25 to a Shimano Ultegra 12-30. Do I also need to replace my chain ( which is not worn) to accommodate the larger diameter of the cluster?

Answers

Answer: 
The 5701 groupset was part of the 105 model line.

Assuming you have enough links in your chain to run the larger sprocket then making a chain amendment would not be necessary.

Answer: 
The Shimano MTB 11 speed chains are not usable with road groups and likewise with Shimano road 11 speed chains on MTB groups.
That said, they may work but not as smoothly as the correct chain/groups combo.
