Here's another newbie question! I'm about to change out my old chain for a new stock one. My question is how do I connect the master link together? I looked it up in my manual but it says nothing about the master link. I know how to assemble it together, but do you need to smash the ends with a hammer, like a rivet? Or do you need some sort of special crimping tool? Thanks!

yes there is some sort of tool. you can find them on ebay or at your local hardware store.

easier way is to use a clip-type master link.

thats what i use and no problems yet...

If you're going to buy a chain breaker/riveter, get the Motion Pro.

JCWhitney has them for $78

Probably not what you wanted to hear :poke
