Sucks that it happened, but at least it happened at slower speeds. Could have been much much worse. Be glad it didn't take out your leg, your motor casing, or lock up the rear wheel at a high speed Hope you get fixed up and back on the road soon.

That's interesting. I never heard of that. I read Patricks post too and I didn't know you could safety wire them also.

What's the other style chain called - where it's pressed together like rivets?

Many, many years ago I bought a chain with that kind of 'coupler' and my dumbass put it on myself with two sets of vise grips (one set on each side of the chain link until I got both sides tight). I thought it was on pretty good but I ended up spitting it off the bike at about 75 on the 610 loop by the astrodome. Just "zwap!" and it shot off the sprocket.

I up and coasted to the inside breakdown lane - at 5:30 in the afternoon on a weekday - and had to run out into traffic to retrieve my brand new chain.

Its called a rivet master link. Your lucky the chain shot out at the right time and out of the bike

I had one with the clip master link like that come off on me before. It was on a 92 CBR 600. Chain went through the back of the motor and broke the water pump housing. Ended up having to replace the motor. I would count your lucky stars.

So was the green wire for the kick stand switch? Just wondering if that is what caused the motor to turn off and then not run anymore.

The direction of the clip is very important. This is also why mine has silicone on it. To change chains, I have to scrape the black silicone off. Its a to get it off.
