Chain rivit link

Has anyone have any insight on installing new chain with a rivit master link.?

Getting new chain and sprockets today and would like to do this myself :)

You need the tool. Rent/ borrow one if you can.

i picked up the motion pro rivet kit from TT for like $90

If you are too cheap or don't want to wait you can use a grinder or dremel tool and grind down the rivet and use a punch to drive it out. If you do it that way make shure that it is on the rear sprocket so that it wont have tension on it. I bought the cheap chain breaker from rockymountainatv for 10 bucks while I ordered my new sprockets and chain. I think that the easyest way is the chain breaker. I have done both ways on bigger chains and motorcycle chains and the best/fastest way is the chain breaker. I think that it is worth the money.

You absolutely need the tool to do the rivit

      I have this issue several times and cannot seem to figure it out. The four clutch spring bolts are the weakest bolts I have ever come across. I am not sure what the torque specs are, have the shop manual, have searched online and I can only guess it's around 4 ft/lbs. I have been told 8 and they seem to break every time around 7.
      What is the proper torque for these bolts?
      Should I find stronger bolts? I would still stick to the proper torque, but feel as if these things are butter.

      Prior to reassembling the case, I tested the shifting and it seems the center fork attached to the shaft seems to stick at the steepest section of the drum. I have cleaned and tested all forks and surfaces for smooth movement, tried it with silicone and oil. With very little help, it seems to shift ok, but without the help, it binds.
      Can I assume that once it is together the oil lines are attached and oil is added to the case, the binding will stop? I have tested every scenario short of assembling the entire motor.
      Should I be able to successfully test the shifting with the case apart?
