Bring it over and we'll pop it open. Take an hour to source the evil, it's pretty simple work.

Is anyone heading up to Delta tomorrow for the Old Bastards Rally? I'll be there in the afternoon on the GS. Rain or shine, it needs to be washed anyways.

Got an angle grinder? If so, you've got a chain breaker. Just grind the pins off one of the links down to the plate, then punch it out.

I could do that but I don't want to damage the chain and I find that hard to do on the bike. It is my backup plan though...:

If you put the link on the back surface of the rear sprocket, like 2:00 or 3:00, it should be fairly safe and easy to grind the heads off. Just make sure the grinding direction is away from the bike itself. You can even put the bike in gear so the chain stays in place.

Easy peasy.

Replacing the old one, which is riveted, not clipped.
As Mike mentioned, there are other ways but a chain breaker is the neatest and easiest.
Already installed the new sprockets! Chain really isn't that bad but since I have the new one...and I don't know how old the old one is...
