Is my chain broken?


Recommended Posts

I've attached a picture below

I've recently inspected my chain and noticed a link looking odd. Since the chain is only around 1800 miles, I'm wondering if the image below should be a cause of concern?

(The other links are perfectly fine)

seized link, 1800 on a CBF is probably right espcially if it's OEM.

Edit: Just had a quick google, that chains also quite a cheap one. In the range fo £14 for the bike and with something so cheap I wouldn't expect much more.

if it is just the one link like that then you can try working it loose by spraying lots of cleaner and thin lube at it. Give it a bit of a wiggle and they sometimes come free, once it moves properly take it for a good run and recheck.
