+1 for Motion Pro Chain Tool
replaced the final drive today on my '04 zx6rr. was kind of fretting replacing the chain since it was my first time. the motion pro chain tool broke my old chain off with little to no effort. I was surprised at how easy it was to use and how efficiently it broke through. pressing the new chain on was a little more difficult but fairly intuitive.
the one thing that surprised me was that the ek chain i purchased didn't come with a press-on master link. mary from super-bike supply sent one with my order. if i hadn't had that master link i would have been fooked. the one that came with the chain was a retaining pin type.
now i'll run it easy for a while to ensure my rivet job holds. don't want my new chain turning into a medieval weapon and "macing" me to death as i'm getting on the power.
for anyone looking to replace a chain i recommend this product. part number from the motion pro web site: 08-0135
