If it's a solid chain. without a split link, you will need a chain splitter/rivetter, about £50. Removing sprockets is usually easy, sometimes front one needs a big socket and persuasion. Like Stu says, depends how mechanically minded you are. I used to do chain splitting/rivetting with an anglegrinder and two hammers, but I wouldn't recommend a novice doing it that way. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

I do it the same way I've had many people say you cant do it! I dont think they realise that with a rivetting tool all your doing is the same bloody thing :lol:

You're about an hour from me . Price up getting a bikeshop to do it and then PM yer number for a chat?


I've had people slagging me off for using the anglegrinder, two hammer method, but I did it on my dragbike with 200BHP going through it and never had a problem :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Main problem I have had is new rivet links are very difficult to get the new sideplates on. I use Gold chains and I prefer not to scratch em with two pairs of molegrips!!!

G clamps Alan :wink:


once the plate is so far on use a nut over the rivet head so you can push either side of the plate :)

Used this method loads of times (even though I have a chain splitter tool somewhere :shock: )


Removal is easy with an anvil, cold chisel and lump hammer! :mrgreen:


:cheers:
