peening chain

i just bought a new did 520 vt peen type chain. i have it on the bike but have not yet peened the pins. does anyone have any tips on how to do this? i have a motion pro chain breaker and am trying to think of a way to peen it with that.

by the right tool or you will be redoing the job. Once you have the correct tool make sure the die line up properly with the pin, put some oil on the pin and crush it slowly. Don't mash it as fast as you can. If you don't do it correctly the pin will not peen correctly and may crack. If that happens start over.

well i just didnot want to spend a 125 bucks to peen a chain. so i took my motion pro chain breaker and a valve shim. put it over the open end of the chain breaker than slowly crushed the end of the pin.it worked!
