You can add links, but it's not just master links. A chain has alternating "innies" and "outies". Master links are all "outies". You'll have to find an extra "innie" somewhere.
Personally, I would not do it this way except in a pinch to get through a race (or to get home after a chain failure out on the road). Every master link has a little element of risk going along for the ride. There's no way to install a chain without one master link, but one master link is half the failure risk of two. You are not in that much of an emergency ... the bike can still be ridden with the sprockets that you have, until you have the $ for a new chain.
Helibars, MRA screen, Ohlins damper, reversed shift pattern, sorted suspension, braided lines, Michelin Pilot Power, all else stock 'coz it's fast enough!
