I have. In the 90's my Kawasaki decided it was fond of snapping master links. Usually all the plates gone on one side and the other side deformed but once with half of the outside plate and the clip still in position. Some times were more catastrophic than others. Stopped happening when master link was replaced by a rivet type. 30,000 later it started again when the chain was replaced and the apprentice used a clip on instead.
