    I counted links - 56. So I guess that is 112 pins. I bought a 120 pin chain. I will have to cut a bit off. Hope that will not be a problem.

    Hoping to be able to cut excess off by cutting the heads off the pins with a Drexel cutting tool. Will that work?

    Planning to hook the new chain onto the old chain and pull it through. Simple enough.

    Hope I do not wreck a good chain.

    Super easy job. Yes anything that grinds the pin flush to the face of the plate will do it, does not even need to be pretty.
    You should clean around the countershaft sprocket and check if your swingarm has a grease nipple while you are in there.

    Rode my MV today, it was nice.
    ... mostly on gravel roads

    I just take the chain off and lay it alongside the old one, that also shows you how much it has stretched.

    Is normal a thing?

    Was able to grind the tops off the pins, but cannot get the pins to push through.

    Do I need a chain breaker tool? Wonder if I could make a clamp work.

    You just need a hammer and a dull nail or a punch that is smaller then the pin you are hitting. You can press it apart or you can drive it apart, either works.
    you need to apply a little more agression


    Wow is it ever nice out gotta ride sometime today or it would be a waste.

    Not fixed yet. Hesitant to get aggressive when I do not know the limits.

    Thanks for sharing the video. How do you do that when the chain is on the bike?

    I have successfully ground the rivet heads off.
