Chain Breaker / Riveter

Does anyone have any experience with chain riveters? I am going to have to put a new chain on my '98 R1 and I would rather do it myself. The chain isn't going to last until December (?) when my new green ZX10 arrives. There is too much riding to do until then. Besides, I also have a 2 day track day to attend Oct 25 / 26.

Don't confuse me with facts, my mind is already made up.

chain breaker / riveter

I guess there are different models available. A dealer in San Antonio says he has a Motion Pro piece for $70 but he does not recommend it. I have heard prices up to the $250 range. The last time I did one, I just used common shop tools. It was a b***h getting the side plate on and to the correct depth (width). With a lot of hands, I managed to get it half-a***d staked. It is still working, but I wasn't pleased with the final product. Does the tool you have make the task easier and more professional? Where did you get yours and how much was it?

Don't confuse me with facts, my mind is already made up.

I have since bought the Motion Pro model chain breaker/riveter. If you tend to do your own bike work, I highly recommend it. It works great.
