chain tool

what chain breaking tool should i buy that is compact enough to carry with me? also, do you carry a few master links just in case?

why do you need to carry it with you? I hate those things i just grin the link flat put it in a vise and tap it out with a punch.

You carry a grinder, vise and punch with you on rides? Dude I'm riding with you! :)

For aftermarket chains with a splitlink (masterlink), carry a small pair of vice grips to press the spare link on.

Alternatively you could make a "get you home link" by pre-drilling the sideplate so it just slides on easy then add the clip and go.

I had one of those made up and clipped it to the clutch cable on my old KDX, never used it, sold the bike to a friend, its still on the bike, rusted some but still there :)

I have the folding motionpro, it works good, small enough to throw in a pack

with a master link. I didnt get the press, vice grips or channel locks will work

for pressing, although the press may make things a bit easier & faster in the long run.

:):D :lol:we must be talking about something different i can't for the life of me think of why anyone would need to carry a chainbreaker with them on the trail

oh wait duh if you break a chain you can remove the broken link right? i guess im lucky i've never broken a chain i always replace them sooner than i probably have to.

      Anyone’s air box smell like gas ? Is this normal ? Air filter is bone dry but it reeks in there .... I’m assuming cause of the carb being semi filled with gas ??

      So I’m reading these horror stories of the stock vacume operated petcocks failing and letting gas into the oil .... how many of you guys switched over and is it worth it to switch to manual ?

      Hey guys . I feel like I post here way to much lol 
      anyway after having my bike kn it’s side overnight to fix a cracked stator cover .... I come to find out that I also accidentally left the pet cock in the prime position .... constant gas flow to carb ... now my oil smells strongly of gas ... my question is ... was it the bike being on its side that made the gas get into the oil or the prime position on petcock that made this happen ? Or both ? I didn’t ride it much at all after discovering... I assume. I should drain the oil obviously but any other suggestions ? Always appreciated -mark

      Hello all, first time poster. Just bought this bike a few days ago it’s an 08 drz 400sm and am starting to notice it has a strange backfire at idle. I understand a little bit at decel might be normal, but at idle too?  It appears to have been jetted already, judging by the fact it has a jd jetting sticker on the bike itself. I know that it’s not an exact indicator it has but it could be. Has an FMF exhaust, it looks like a full system rather then a slip on but not entirely sure. A buddy recommended I mess with the air and fuel screw, haven’t done that yet. Just wanted to see if there was any other tips I should try.
