I'm a beginner when it comes to upgrading new parts, and have done my utmost best to research throughout the forum. I can't find a clear understanding/picture of what is a correct rivet. I've included 3 pictures of my chain and rivet upon completion. Please let me know if its okay or if I should perhaps change something. Thanks //

It looks good to me, but the only way to be sure is measure the width of a factory link and mash your rivets until it is that same width. I don't know which is worse, too loose or too tight, so don't do either.

Looks good. Ride a few miles and check in on it from time to time.

Mine are usually swelled a little more than that, make sure you don't split it though.

Its probably not going anywhere if you leave it the way it is.

Looks decent to me. You can also measure how much you have mushroomed out the rivet "head". I think that measurement is usually included with the new chain. It is usually a percentage of the pin diameter, I can't remember how much it is though.

What tool did you use? Some of them have pins that are shaped to have a hard stop so you can't overdo it.
