    Looking to rent or borrow tool to rivet my masterlink for my 520 chain conversion on my 07 cbr 600rr. I can buy you a six pack or whatever if you would like that type of payment lol. Will just need to borrow for a couple hours in the next few days. Thank you in advance

  4. It appears that the Harbor Freight tool is only a chain-breaking tool, (rather than a master-link swaging tool).

    You don't really need a chain-breaking tool. You can grind the swaged head of the master link posts flush with the master link, and then pry the master link apart with a screw driver. The outside plate of the master link will just pop off.

  6. I used the harbor freight chain brake tool, reversed it to rivot my chain.Works well.Just need a set of calipers to measue the pin to make sure you didnt go too far and split the end.Look on youtube, shows you how and its like $20.
