What tools do I need to break a chain and then reconnect it?
Where can I get a step by step on how to do this?
And from the tools listed who makes good ones to buy(ie: craftsman, etc.)?

This is for my 04 gsxr600. Are there different types of chains that would require different tools? Say if I went to a after-market 520 conversion later on would I still be able to use the tools I had purchased?

they will all work with any chain.
i got mine from vortex. buy a half decent one. i bought a cheap one from lockhart phillis and it broke the first time i used it.

the breaker comes with instructions and its simple.

you other option is a chain that has a clip stye masterlink and cut it with a dremal tool

call 1-888-FASTLAP they have the tool

its a std tool for all chains

you have to be careful so you don't break pieces with it.

if your old chain has a clip, just remove it and the chain will come apart

i use the MotionPro chain breaker/riveter. I've used it many times and it works good.

you can buy it through Lockhart Phillips at a good price if you're part of their Team Privateer.. or you can get it from a number of other places as well.
