Process to repair / replace timing chain

Recommended Posts

I am a new member of this group and also new to bikes. I have never owned or ridden one, but just bought a 1983 XR80 for my son, which prompty quit as soon as we got it home. Turns out the bolts holding the timing gear to the cam came loose and jammed between the gear and rocker cover. So, I need a new gear and chain. No problem getting the gear, but wonder if chains are available with a master link? If not, does the engine need to be split apart to replace with a new endless chain? Thanks! :cry:
