Default Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

Well,I put the new chain on today and the master link broke. It happened about 3 miles from home. First I had to walk back about a block or so to pick up my chain, sigh. Lucky for me I was still able to peddle my bike home. So I said the heck with it and got out my chain breaker.

I had an extra bit of 415 chain and a chunk of steel that was half an inch wide by 4 x 8 inches. I then attached the extra chain with my chain tool and then hammered on it with the chunk of steel behind it.I then took the bike, little two-mile ride,this time it seemed to hold.Slowly but surely I think I'm just about there.

Question: has anybody else blown a mater-link or was I just that lucky?
