    rather than buy a $100 tool, take it to a shop and have them do it for $30 cash.

    Or buy the $100 tool and save from all the years you won't have to go to the mechanic for it.

    or you can go and buy a master link. i dont know what kind of bike you're putting this chain on, but if its under 60hp you should be fine. if it breaks though, don't blame me. just grind off the rivet head, and punch out the link, replace with the master link ftw.

    its going on my f4...and jc_smith pretty much summed it up. I plan on owning bikes for the rest of my life, so i'm sure i'll buy on eventually, the thing WILL eventuall pay for itself...

    For occasional duty use one of the cheaper tools from ebay or the like will probably do just fine. They're half the cost of the Motion Pro or RK units.
