Don't know anyone in southwest Houston, sorry.

Shouldn't be too hard. Should just need some basic tools and maybe a dremel.

Might wanna swap out your sprockets also while you're at it.

That's how we got mine off. Could have used the chain tool, but that's not nearly as much fun. Didn't use a string to run the new chain though. I just used the new master to link the new and old chain and pulled it through.

Just call up any Honda shop, there's not much involved to replace a chain.

Check the sponsors on this site, any should be a great choice. The only one I have experience with is Motorcycle's Unlimited, and those guys are great. Up on 1960 near 45.

I used Eastside Honda in Baytown a couple of weekends ago to have my tires replaced. It would be one of a drive for you, but I was really impressed with their service department as well.

I use a dremel and cut off wheel and a rivet tool to reassemble.

i've got a dremel to remove the old chain, and i rivet tool to reassemble. But i would not replace the chain without replacing the sprockets at the same time, or you will just end up cutting the chain 1/2 way through its life to replace the sprockets.

If the sprockets aren't showing wear (unlikely if the chain is bad) I don't replace them.
