Chain Changing nightmare! - September 12, 2012, 11:48 AM

Gentleman had his chain snap at about 70mph
It was a clip style, but that's not to say that it's the link's fault
he may have not installed it correctly.

EEeeewwwwww...........

Just slap some JB Weld on there and call it a day. I'm sure it'll hold.

This would happen to be for an 06 R6? Saw something on CL where a guy was parting out an R6 because of a chain failure.

nothing wrong with JB weld, you would be amazed the stuff that shit fixes and holds. I did an engine case on my Yamaha Blaster when I was 15 with it, stuff held awesome, was even able to tap threads into it in one spot for a bolt hole that was snapped off. There is a reason it ranks just under duct tape on the Redneck survival kit, its a close third after Beer and Duct Tape.
