Chain Tool: Good place to buy? Never lend out ur Shit! - December 22, 2011, 12:19 PM

Sigh...
So i brought a Chain tool way back in 2005. I paid alot for it (and didnt want to). I brought it from team Promotion store back then.

I lent it to my boy in 2009....and been trying to get it back since then. No replies to text or anything

So looks like Ill have to pick up another one.
I had a motion Pro.
It was ok, but i dont think it was the best. Anyone have a preferred brand? good experience? bad experience with certain brands?

As far as the Motion Pro goes, the rivet remover tool was garbage. Everyone of the pushrods broke. I just end up grinding off the chain, but some new bike chains I like to keep and dont want the heat to damage a good links O/X ring.

For the most part I will be using this to rivit on a new chaing.

My newest bike chain is so rusty it look like it was cleaned with cheddar cheese!!!

Any local shops have on in stock????

Stolemans usually has one, Motorcycle Factory in Woodbridge also had one. Harbor Freight had some, but the precision might not be up to par, and its not a tidy lil kit.

I need to buy another one.
The 2011 ZX10R require some crazy gearing changes.
Most times you can get away with the typical -1/+2, but most racers are saying they are doing -2/+3 at tracks like VIR, and others are playing with -1/+3, & -1/+5

Im going to start with -1/+3 and shimming my shock 10-12mm
so I will need the chain track side to sort the bike out and add/subtract links on the fly.

Plus I like having the tool when I need it.

What brand is yours and where did you get it?

Grind the pins off. Then use a harbor freight one to install the masterlink. I've screwed up pins trying to get them out. Easier to just grind it and be done.

You have to grind down the link pin for all chainbreakers. Otherwise you WILL break the push pin.

I been using this one for years without issue.

But even it will bend and split the end of the push pin if you don't grind down the link pin.

I came up with the very same question few days ago when I was debating on which breaker/rivet tool should I buy. Except that I posted it on gixxer.com

After discussing with good number of people, I pulled the trigger and got the RK Chain breaker tool kit from Motomummy for 105 bucks. I figured after 2 or 3 chain jobs it will be paid for. Also my deal got even sweeter since my buddy chipped in half for the tool. Most reviews would say Pro Motion and other brands break easily while RK tool is supposedly the strongest one out there.

Good to hear! Looking forward to receiving mine next week!

I forgot to add that nobody has it locally. Motomummy offers them for the cheapest price of $105. They are about $160 everywhere else.

Von I use this tool and own 2 of them. One to remove one to install. With this tool you do not have to grind down anything. I have had it for 7 years and done well over 100 chains and have not broken anything. If you want cheap buy cheap and it will not last. If you want quality then get the jumbo tool.
