Does anyone know where to get a good chain breaker???
A bicycle or motorcycle shop. I got one at the local bike shop.
Here's the link to a previous thread.
One word: Park Bicycles Mini Chain Brute CT-5 Breaker Tool
I found eBay was cheaper than local....

Does the Parks CT-5 chain breaker work on both chains?
Yep. Yes. Si.
I ordered mine today.
here is a pictorial i did on how to use it. not real great but it will help
I use a 4" grinder and a small straight slot screw driver to pry the link open... never a problem.
I got mine- can't get the danged link to go back together...
I bought a summit big boy chain break on ebay. After I modified it the thing works better than the park... My park was pretty tough except the pin pusher brads on me every time I use it. The steel is too soft or I wind it down way to tight.
The summit hasn't done that yet but all the chain guides broke off so I ground them down to nothing. Now I just line the chain rivet and the plunger up by sight and it works great. I always start the replacement of the rivet with a pair of pliers then use the plunger to press it home. Works every time.
Chain breaker. I juse a grinder too. I like it better when sparks are flying.
how do you put them back together master link?'
With a grinder you can't rebrad them back together. Grinders are also a bit cumbersome to use for doing a roadside repair.
Aw come on we always carry one in our hip pocket Bob. What we realy need is a tire that only goes flat on the top side and not the bottom side. Right!
I haven't found a need to put one back together yet ?!?!
