300 xcw Master link

Recommended Posts

Im trying to get the master link off my chain so i can replace the stock chain guide. i got the clip off easily but i cant get the plate off the release the master link ive pried and broken a screw driver trying to pop it off. usually once the clip is off you can just pull the plate with your fingers. What am i missing? Thanks

I;ve had to use my chain breaker tool to get the outside side plate off my chain on my KTM. Press it out. You may have to press the pins back in flush with the inner side plate after doing this though.

The chain guide sort of peens over the ends of the pins so you have to pry the link off. Two flat blade screwdrivers does the trick. Make sure to replace the clip as well. The old one is probably a little worn.

Or if you have a new master link you can grinddown the pins on the one that is stuck
