D.I.D. Chain install tool?

Anyone find a good alternative to the D.I.D KM500 chain tool? I am trying to assemble a D.I.D 525VM2 chain on a '06 10R. Any input? Thanks

I don't have a tool and didn't want to buy on so I put everything together with the chain on the bike and took it to a local shop, charged me $10 to rivet the master link.

jump up on chicagolandsportbikes.com and ask if anyone has a chain rivet tool. You'll meet some good people there as well. I don't have one atm. I kinda boke it last time i used it. :)
