Chain / Sprocket Help

I've got a new chain, front and rear sprockets that I need to put on a GSX-R 750. Bought them at Stubbs but Stubbs says that they can't do 'em today. I'd put them on myself, but don't have the tool for the master link.

Eximport quotes labor at 1.5 hrs, $115! I think that's a lil steep, huh?

But anyway, if anyone can lend a hand or a tool for a little while today I can buy beer or whatever - or if anyone knows a shop that'll do it cheaper I'm all ears.

thanks

Last time I changed a chain it got spit off on the highway. Pays to have the right tools.

I just cut the old one off w/ a hacksaw.

I let Eximport mount two tires for me (on the bike) last week and it was $90. I figure a chain sprocket change would be easier AND quicker.

I'm going -1/+2

I guess I'll just go buy the rivet tool.

How do you recommend taking off the chain?

I've got a D.I.D. Gold X-ring chain. Haven't picked it up yet - think that one has a clip or needs to be pressed?
