Very good, ordered my chain and sprocket kit today and getting a spare master link. Will be attempting this next weekend, instead of cutting the chain or popping the pin out of the master link. Can you just take it off when you remove both sprockets.

Can't find my master link and do not have a dremel or grinder to use. Trying to think of the next easiest way to do it and figured I could take it off as I take the sprockets off.

If not I'll be re-visiting harbor freight for a grinder and some wheels soon.

Cracked the right rivet on my master link and my spare....now I have to wait until next weekend to try it again, out of master links. Going to order 2 more rivet style and a clip style and try next weekend to get the rivets right. If not I will have to use the clip on style to get me to the dealer to install one.



--- Ordered 3 more rivet master links, if i cant get it right in those 3 I'm just going to use a clip style until I can get to the dealership

A little bit at a time buddy! Press a little , check, repeat. Don't rush. The chain manufacturers should have the amount of flare on their site. I know RK does. That's the last chain I purchased.

Great write up! I think I'm going to have a shop do mine (since I'm new to bikes) this time around, maybe I'll tackle it using this guide later on.
Thanks for the guide!

Just subbing in to keep in in my subscribed ones. Hitting my bike with all new sprockets and chain tomorrow and want to keep this up.

Great write up. Pics are worth 1000 words.
