Need some help....
or a tool to borrow, actually. Chain rivet tool. Working on a bike tomorrow and I don't have one....and don't really want to spend 75-100 bucks on one right now. I will be buying one but it's not in this months budget. Please and thank you!!

I really should clarify...I need this saturday around noon if possible. Short notice, my bad.

I also read I can use the HF chain breaker as a riveter so I has options too.

to get the old chain off, u could use a sawzall...or grinder. and you could use a hammer and a punch to flare out the rivet for the new chain, just put something solid on the other side of the chain

Rent/borrow something that would work from a local auto parts store? If not, then bump for a good guy. RK has been way more than generous before to this community of riders, hopefully someone can step up and pay back some karma!

I looked at O'Reilly's while I was there to get some wiring stuff....didn't really see anything in the rental brochure that would work. I've got the 10 dollar HF tool lined up. I really only need it to work once, but if I get more than that, great! Thanks for posting.

I just used the HF special to take off the old (532) and put on the new (520). Worked like a charm. Search YouTube for some helpful vids if you haven't already.

Already have, thanks! Going to give this a shot if nothing turns up. Got nothing to lose! (well, maybe 10 bucks)

I'll look there too. I need one for myself so we'll see what happens. Are you sure it wasn't a breaker? The breakers on their website were cheap....the riveters were spendy.

Hey Brett, If for any reason you don't get one tomorrow, don't sweat it too much. I can bring mine out to you tomorrow evening or Saturday morning. Just let me know if you still need it.
