Wish I was gonna be around. Headed out Wed. morn to do a Georgia perimeter ride.


Dinner in Richmond Hill sounds better than Ramean eaten out of the Jet Boil. Maybe next time.

That sounds like fun. Is there a mapped route?

Well, not actually mapped out route but an idea. Leave Bluffton and cross the Savannah River on 119 South at Clyo, turn North and stay as close to the Georgia state border as possible all the way around the state. Post it when I get back.

Anyone got a chain rivet tool I can borrow or rent for a day? Will also take any advice?

Sorry, I don't have one. I've seen some on sale recently on cyclegear.com.

Hey Rutabaga, how ya been doin'?
If I had a rivet tool you would be more than welcome to borrow it...but, don't have one. I think Cycle Gear (Charleston) has the whole kit on sale right now for around $39.
Personally, I use clip type master links...you can safety wire the clip for a little extra "peace of mind :)". Been using them on the race bikes for years...in much harsher conditions than our ADV bikes ever see, with no issues. However YMMV!
If you decide to use a clip type, make sure it matches your chain (size, mfg., model)!!

This is only helpful if you already have the tools (a c-clamp and tubing flare set). I've never actually done a chain with that DIY tool, a one of my coworkers has a complete chain tool set and that makes it easy and quick.

Make sure you press the side plate on to the correct spacing before you mushroom the rivet pins. I use a set of calipers to compare the master link to the next link over; once the dimension between both outside plates is the same, I mushroom the rivets until the width of the rivet pin heads is the same as the rivets in the next link over.

Yea, I used clips on my shifter kart secured with some very fine safety wire. Just the ticket for easy maintenance. Horsepower was not too different from the G650(45 vs 52?). I think the chain I was looking at only came with the rivet link.

Wow! Calipers. Digital I hope. My shaking hands make a mockery of measuring distances that small.

Nah, I have a set of cheapo vernier calipers that do the trick. They are good to .1mm, if you can read a vernier scale!
