Rivet link fatigue, classic failure mode. Sack the guy who fitted the chain. It's really important to ensure that the link is pressed parallel otherwise the side plates bend slightly (on a micron level) every time the chain goes around. This causes fatigue and the results you see. Nearly always happens on the rivet link due to this. Obviously it could have been a flaw in the material but since it's on the rivet link, this cause is far more likely.

Time to drag your chain tools out from under the seat......right?

Thanks, the antenna is for UHF radio which is connected to a bluetooth hub (Sena SR10) both which live in the glovebox which is bluetoothed to my helmet headset and mic.
Great for coms bike to bike in the mountains.
Can stay out of each other dust and get at least a few kilometers range.
