Chain breaking?

Okay guys & gals, here is the deal:

I need to pull off my old chain so that I can get the tranny cover off (the chain is restricting the clearance I have so it must come off. Anyhow, I'm down to where I need to be (as far as breakdown of the bike is concerned) to change the countershaft seal and push rod seal. Do I just cut the chain at the master link or is there a special chain breaking tool? If there is, does anyone have one that I could borrow? If no special tool is required, can I just hack saw the master link in the middle and then take the chain to a shop to have the remainder of the master link removed? Thanks
DBuck

yes you can cut it yourself in the middle and then later have a shop remove the old pieces and put a new on in, or get a whole new chain.

cool, that's what I needed to know. The chain and sprockets only have 6 or 7k on 'em and aren't showing any bad signs of stretching or major wear so I was gonna try and salvage 'em to save some money.....the same reason I started this project on my own

I was, but I don't have a way to get the bike up there during business hours and I'm out of vaca time for the year, especially since missing a few hours last week at work....BTW, I got the speedometer cable fixed in ol' blue as well. 10 bucks at your local junkyard and 30 minutes of labor....that's a one way trip up to the shop

The tool I have is supposed to be able to break the chain, but it is dead now. I just use a grinder, or cut off wheel on the dremel. Cut or grind the pins on the master down flush with the side plate, then it will just push out. You'll need a new master to go back together either way.
