I'm just getting ready to do this job. This is a great and perfectly detailed write up. I haven't changed the chain on my KLR yet, so let's hope it goes well :-) thanks again.

Worn Sprocket

Thanks klm4755. Nice details.

These look more like suggestions than teeth

I think I could have turned this sprocket around and ran it for another 1000 miles.

Hi. I recover this old thread because I just discover that DID RIVETTING TOOL is not more compatible with new chains

I was using a Did 520V in my DR350, rivetted without problem and perfect... just received a 520VX2 (X ring instead o ring), tried to riveting and... BAD. I discovered DID tool doesnt fit this new chain.
First, new chain is a bit closer.

When you insert chain to rivet, and push the plate, in other side is two hole with a groove, and that groove was perfect for 520v, but its large for 520VX, then you push to other side the pin a bit= x-ring crushed.

Im trying to adapt Did rivetter tool to new chain (covering the holes), next days I will try to rivet again with new ordered parts...

I was thinking that DID tool was a good investiment for future, but if every years I must replace tool.... maybe would be better a standard chain tool.
