Chain broke off on me last night

Hey guys I was hoping to get some help about a good place to get my chain and tire replaced I have a friend who can get a trailer for me already mancuso is charging me 55 for tire replacement and 40 for chain labor not including chain
Any suggestions?
Any chain suggestions as well?
Team M SW is right across the freeway from me but since I had just gotten the chain 2 weeks ago amd replaced the tire im looking to save as much money as possible
Im not quite sure what happened to my chain to make it fail im guessing the master link was messed up
Sucks pushing your bike home in southwest with shady hispanics dressed in all black :P haha (im mexican btw so no racial) joking aside thanks for any help bros!

Yeah man, it ain't hard just make sure to get the right tools. The stockton chain breaker is on sale at cyclegear for like $30. That's what I have, and it works great.


.....buy a couple extra master links, you'll it up the first time.

You said the chain was just replaced two weeks ago? Why did it snap? Was it not adjusted correctly? Did u install it yourself?

Anyways $40 to do the chain is not bad most places charge about $120 (including sprockets, which if you just replaced ur chain but it snapped, you may be in need of) just for example.

40 for a chain isnt bad at all. I would do it myself before I paid that but I seems pretty seasonable for labor

I replace chains so often that I need the best chain tool . your cycle gear stack on tool may work a few times for the do it yourself rider . If your planning on doing it right , and want a life time tool go here .

http://www.motorcycle-superstore.com...ting-Tool.aspx

Now the 500 model is the one I own just over 200 bucks , but the 501E model is almost the same just not as heavy duty . Good for the life of one owner ( 501E ) 500 model good for the life of a person who does dozens of chains a year .

I bought 4 master links total for the first time I changed the chain one month ago. Indeed, very likely, u will mess it up the first time. It took me 3 attempts to make it right.
