Re: broke my chain,

You can try 3 things...
1-Get a Ouija board and perform a seance.
2-Tweezers thru the seal to grip whats left.
3-Remove the clutch cover and push the broken part back out. (remember there are 2 push rods in there!)
Did it shear off any of the motors bosses for the cover?

Kinda Dejavu isnt it? Least my chain did not break lol

Using the knowledge of the SRADIATOR I took the clutch cover off and used a giant screwdriver to push the broken Push Rod out. None of my tweezers could get it

Nothing else broke when your chain snapped? I would assume this was when you were riding? The pumps and everything are okay?

Re: broke my chain,

well tomorrow i will be able to dig into her and see if anything else is damaged. i looked over my clymer manual about how in depth this is going to be. all i have to do it swap water pumps from my old motor to this one. take the clutch cover off and take the preasure plate lifter off. tap out whats left of the broken clutch pushrod. slide the new one in and button her back up. i did notice that the mounting boss for the primary cover that is by the pushrob is gone. it looks like there are threads down in there still. i have the piece of the mounting boss that broke off. what should i do? i could try to weld it back on. i could jb weld it back on. i could get a longer bolt and drill the threads out of the broken off piece and use it as a spacer. what do you guys suggest? also, since i am in there looking at the clutch i see that there are 2 srings pushed up against eachother. would i get more bite if i threw a 3rd spring in there? ummm. oh and i have a brand new 530 non oring chain that i got for another bike. im gonna be putting that on to get the bike to a place to have them put a new chain on with one of those rivvet style master links. anyone see a problem with this? it looks to be the same widtch as my 525 oring chain. thanks guys.

oh and sradiator sorry i havnt called you back yet. things have been kind of hectick here lately.

"I could get a longer bolt and drill the threads out of the broken off piece and use it as a spacer."

I was thinking the very same thing!
Just be careful not to pierce the engine cases with that longer bolt or you will have an oil leak that you will have to seal.

Re: broke my chain,

Chain and sprockets were brand new. Chain snapped at the master link. I believe the side plate wasn't on properly. Shit happens

Re: broke my chain,

Gotta use the rivet tool (ASSuming it was rivet type)!
Some folks try and peen the link ends and it's anyone's guess if it will hold or not?
Not saying you did just a heads up for those who have taken a short cut!
Many folks don't trust the clip type but i personally have never had a problem with them.
I have seen them safety wired and one guy used a small aluminum strip, folded over between clip and plate as a safety measure.

Re: broke my chain,

it was a clip link. its baffling. oh well. i just fished out the pieces of the clutch pushrod and put everythng back together on that side. taking a break right now as its about 120 degrees in my shed. next up is swapping out my water pump and fabricating a mount for my primary cover. replumbing the cooling system, chain, and riding the piss out of her.

while you may not have a problem - personally I wouldn't run different pitch sizes.

Re: broke my chain,

Try a magnet? Some of the magnet retrieval tools are about the same size and are pretty strong. And they're cheaper than a clutch cover gasket.

Re: broke my chain,

already got the clutch pushrod out, the clutch cover gasket came off perfectly and sealed right back up. as far as the chain goes its really just to get me to the shop that is gonna put my new chain on. all i have left to do now is put my exhaust and radiator back on. plumb the cooling. fill her up and throw the bodywork back on..
