    By the way, is there any reason you didn't just go out and buy a cheap chain breaker?



    ... it will likely break the first time you use it but it still might be worth it

    That's only about a 10 dollar tool in the picture, shop around if they try to sell you something that costs more then the chain

    The only one I found local is a breaker / rivet kit for $50. $10 to $15 breakers available online. Have not looked hard, but the ones I found were back ordered for a couple weeks.

    Probably could find one sooner if I looked harder.

    Wondering if I could make one with a C clamp. Or maybe a vise.

    Maybe cut the one off the bike and shorten the new one with a vise rig. Thinking I could put a nut on one side to give room for the rivet to protrude and have something on the other side to push the rivet. Maybe a small screw.

    Absolutely you could make one,
    just apply the principals, push the little pins through the outside plate,
    you can press it out the same as you would punch it out only different

    It's a used chain, grab it with 2 pair of vice grips and lose your **** on it
    if it don't come off you didn't grind it enough

    New one is going on with a cir-clip, right?
    You won't have this problem next time

    you guys have princess auto?

    I found one on the net for 7$ canadian, what's that in your money $5
    you don't need to drive that pin very far, only 1 millimetre should do it,
    then work the second pin and pop you're off

    You can make something, you are great at chess
    is it off yet?

    Yes, new one is clip.

    Other bikes have a long way before they will need a chain. But I think they have riveted master link.

    Have to be gentle taking a couple links off the new one. Don’t want to wreck that one.

    Fortunately chain is extremely durable
    until you grind the rivet heads off and hit the little pin just right with a hammer



    Put the clip on the correct way.

    Got the old chain off and the new chain fed through the front sprocket. I decided not to shorten it until I got it on the bike so I could make sure I do it right.

    Plan to do that today.

    The owner’s manual call for specific torque on the axel nut and adjuster stop nut. Do I need a torque wrench to do this precisely? Or can I do it by feel?

    The adjusters should have very little stress on them, they just position the axle.
    Tighten the axle damn tight! That's what actually stops the wheel from being displaced. Use the really big wrenches to tighten the axle.


    ... and make sure the clip is on in the correct direction! The cir-clip travels like a squid, head first, legs follow.



    Good day today, people should be arriving here to ride soon
