MP chain tool

Recommended Posts

Greetings all, long time no see

 

Got a question re chain fitting. Picked up a new did x ring chain & sprocket after snapping the chain. I have one of those Motion Pro mini chain press tools, which I think is for the clip style master link and wont rivet the master link. Tool as per link below, any good for what I need? I want to rivet the link...

lol I do feel a tit now...adding a link that answers my own question! In my defence I bought it off a sight without a description, but still that doesn't mean I'm not a tit haha!

 

Right, looks my chain install will be on hold for a little longer than I had envisaged. Kompact, the MP in your link looks awesome, but I'll be buying in the UK and that item costs about $20 more. How does the DRC version look?

As an aside, I'm guessing the mini tool I have would be ideal for the trails if I carry a split link with me as an emergency recovery?

 

edit. just watched the video, I'm sold..MP PBR it is!

You'll be happy you spent the money on it. For me it falls under the category "You'll enjoy the quality long after you forget the price".

I've got the MP trail tool and a few other bits & pieces, all great kit. Gotta hand it to them they really pay attention to detail.

      So I have never actually posted on one if these forums. I usually just stalk them to get answers but I messed up and I might be out 800 bucks🙃
      I have a 2013 CRF250L that I recently bought and I wanted to get supermoto wheels for it. I got online and almost ordered a set of warp 9 wheels but then I saw an add on Craigslist. Long story short I purchased lightly used warp9 wheels from a 2012 CRF250X not realizing the axles are different sizes. The rims are the same size as what comes in the kit from warp 9 but the spacers and bearings are larger on the wheels that I got. Does anyone know if I can buy new bearing and spacer kits to go in these hubs to fit them on my bike or will I need to purchase new hubs entirely? 
      I work on a fishing boat and I'm off the coast of Oregon for a few weeks and wanted to order something so I can get these wheels on my bike when I get home.
      Thanks, 
      The guy who f***** up

      Hey guys, I have a 2014 crf250l and the current gearing is 13-40. I am dissapointed at how  slow the acceleration is,so am trying to buy a new rear sprocket. I am currently trying to decide between a 45 and 48 tooth. All help is appreciated.
      Thank you

      Anyone heard this noise coming from under the gas tank when throttle changes? 250 miles 2017 rally. No mods.

      How much of a performance bump is there when putting a full exhaust, ejk, and modding the air box on a crf250l?
      Are there any dyno numbers?
