There's a lot of 4-wheelers and small dirt bikes that have almost no chain adjustment and the chain will be stretched out enough that the adjuster will not take all the slack out, but the chain is still in very good condition. Then if you cut a set of rollers out and pull the adjuster all the way foreword, the chain is now too short. This is when the customer comes in wanting a 1/2 link. I always recommend that they fix the problem by changing the front sprocket. Either go up one tooth until the chain stretches a little more or cut out a set of rollers and drop a tooth.. I've seen a lot of 1/2 links used on small bikes & 4-wheelers, but I wouldn't want one on a street bike. My.02 worth.......
