yeah but whats wrong with the rivet style? I guess this would be good to have in your tool bag under the seat maybe.

I used these once on a bandit 1200. about a 100 HP bike
Yes it worked fine. I later bought the rivet tool.

- You need to be sure you have room for the nuts to travel around the countershaft sprocket area.

- I was abit concerned about the tensile strength of the link pins.
They are designed to be brittle enough to break off at the stress riser areas during installation. But could they fracture later ??

I don't think I would trust this on bikes over 120 HP.

Buy the rivet tool and learn how to use it.
My service manual even details the correct width of the master link when properly installed.

Looks like it would work out in the field when tools are limited. I would feel better with a solid riveted link myself.
