Based on my past experience, the DID master is not likely to fit.
Although there is no good reason for it different manufacturers use slightly larger or smaller pin diameters and sometime slightly longer or shorter master pins ... I found my DID master links would not work on my Honda OEM chain nor some other brand chain I had ... I forget what it was ... but anyway, I would not have a lot of confidence that it would fit unless I had already tried it...
