Push it home and start tearing stuff down yourself, doesn't make any sense to pay someone else to do something you could do.

Right now, you just need to get to the front sprocket and make sure it hasn't cracked the case or bent the shaft. Best way to free stuck chain front the front sprocket area is to pull the swing arm off a little.
you are completely right... so when i get home i will take it apart...

same happened me a few years back....here's a general step by step instruction to fix your problem. It wasn't a lack of maintenance either as someone else suggested....the master clip gave way under hard acceleration and chain had 5k miles....and no, it wasn't a rivet clip either.

Hey you might be right then, because i was coming thru a turn in first and was in the process of accelerating, and the part missing from my RK chain is the master link i put on myself..... but i might have a lil more damage... (sry for pic quality my gf jus took it for me)

Hey guys I know what your talking about, if you used the other kind of master link where you slide on a clip, you have to make sure the opening faces the rear of the bike. so just in case it doesn't catch something and get pulled off.

example:

master link clip installation

Maybe you had it flipped compared to the above photo

@eckzwolfe: thats a nasty mess

It doesn't look too bad, I've seen a lot worse.
Take the counter shaft sprocket bolt loose and see if you can remove the sprocket and chain.
Be patient, don't force anything and it should come off.
You'll probably need a new chain, and possibly a new c/s sprocket.
If you decide to use a clip style link again, safety wire it instead of using the clip, and put a dab of silicone over the safety wire and outside plate.

Wow. Some bikes have clip on master links? Mine requires a chain breaker.
