Re: Finally not so lonely!
Make sure the master link is installed so the closed end of the clip is facing forward as the chain enters the engine drive sprocket. In other words when the master link is on the top chain run the open end of the clip should be pointing towards the rear of the bike.
Also, and I realize its a little late in the game but you need to do some reading here about fenders and how to keep them from becoming a safety hazard. Especially the front one. Fenders are nice, they look good and keep the mud out of your face but they can hurt you if the brackets break and they wrap around your front wheel. Use the search feature and read what others have done to secure them.
