    Got an angle grinder? If so, you've got a chain breaker. Just grind the pins off one of the links down to the plate, then punch it out.

    I could do that but I don't want to damage the chain and I find that hard to do on the bike. It is my backup plan though...:hmmmmm:

    If you put the link on the back surface of the rear sprocket, like 2:00 or 3:00, it should be fairly safe and easy to grind the heads off. Just make sure the grinding direction is away from the bike itself. You can even put the bike in gear so the chain stays in place.

    Easy peasy.

    Replacing the old one, which is riveted, not clipped.
    As Mike mentioned, there are other ways but a chain breaker is the neatest and easiest.
    Already installed the new sprockets! Chain really isn't that bad but since I have the new one...and I don't know how old the old one is...

    Even with my chain breaker, I have to grind the pins.

    Stumbled across some trails soutwest of Odessa. Lots of red dots signifying trail? Anyone ride these? Also, decided to ride back in the ditch from CR6 along north side of Taylar Kidd, came across a couple OPP cruisers sitting in ditch with a speed trap set up. Cop pretty much said I'm good to rip along this ditch...this was AFTER he found out I had a blue plate:D This has opened up a nice little loop to escape to after work. Would be interested to hook up with someone who is familiar with these trails...guessing there are more of these trails North of Odessa as well?

    Be careful. Red dot can signify a no trespassing area as per the trespass to property act....
