Your are not going crazy, the stocker has no masterlink.

if you are fitting a new chain grind the heads of one of the links and use a center punch to knock the pins out.

The new chain, you can use a rivetable link or a clip type, your choice.

Any advantage to using the rivetable? I've always just used the clip type. :)

The rivet link is just peace of mind.

The clip type can wear or get damaged, i have had one come off when i had my KDX and i had no spare on the bike, so then after that i always carried a spare link and never needed it, it is still clipped to the clutch cable on the bike at the new owners, go figure :)

I could not find anyone near here with the tool to rivet my new DID chain so i went with the clip type on my Drz and so far so good, i keep a check on it though.
