I'm just being a tight-rs, not wishing to scratch my chain breaker..... and I'm probably too kak handed to not bust a driving pin anyway.

YouTube has plenty of vids on how to use a chain breaker and some do, and some don't recommend preparing a rivet head first but I think it's generally agreed if a chain is 530 and thicker you definitely do need to prep 1st. Although I know our chains are thinner I personally prefer spending 27 seconds cutting an old chain off and saving my chain breaker which is lovingly kept bathed in gun oil and under my pillow between usage but that's just me cuz I'm a

I only ride endless chains



After this i have only ridden endless chains. It take a bit longer to replace but you have to lube the rear swing arm once in a while anyway ....

My chain of choice is the DID 520 VX2 and i usually buy from Kedo with Esjot sprockets.

Not to bad - solved it "plastic padding chemical metal" - see pictures on the link above. But decided that it was a clue to give up winter riding (happened in March of 2009) At that time it had runded 100.000km and i bought a Smart Fortwo that I at the time could take with the ferry to work at the price as a motorcycle. I ride/drive ~2000km a month to/from work and back then i had a XTZ750 for the sommer months. Since 2013 i've only had the XT660Z in the link below
