Chain splicing

OK peeps, I have a o-ring chain on the Vstrom that has a bad pressed master link. It's hogged out on one pin and I do have 4 pins (new) of the chain.

How can I go about getting rid of the bad section? Just like to get a bit more miles out of the chain due to one bad pin.

2 new master links?

Signed,
cheap bastard

FYI: new chain is on order

yes . use a chain tool or grind off the rivet . make sure the M L clips swim in the propper direction

I must be doing it wrong. The last few chains have hogged out the pin where I put the pressed master link. I grease it and put the o-ring on too.



Maybe I'll go back to clip master links.

Same here.. I went back to Clip links . The reality is that I have never had a problem with them and they are fucking easy.

Going to try a #50 clip style master link for shits and giggles on this 525 chain.

See how long it lasts until new chain comes in.

It's a PITA to match up master links from different chain mfg's.
