Thanks...he wanted to know that you were a Squid Blacksmith on the side...Maybe if you got a 20 doller rivet tool you could do a better job..... just saying ya know????

Can someone please clarify what you mean by lock wiring the clip link on?
Ive read about and have been told by some fairly reputable people (super bike supply) that a clip link should not be used on a liter bike. It just too much power, especially when a clip link is used on a 520 chain conversion.

First I would question the value of a $20 rivet tool vs his $15 one.

Second I would point out that the next step up in tools, that works identically, starts at around $50... more then three times as much, and does the exact same job.


Finally...I would bet his chain is riveted better then yours, as he took the time to do it right, and actually mushroom them out and flatten on the plate by hand.. Yours was probably done "good enough" by the mechanic that wanted to just get another bike done so he can move to the next paying job... they both work, but his was done with more care, and in the end, is a better job.

520 is not meant for 1000's according to tensile strength.

Not really they make them strong enough. They just need to be done right.

I always heard 520's were plenty strong enough for the torque and hp that the 1000cc puts out. My guess is with the majority aswell, bad rivet or improper install at least.

And like ervyone else said, count yourself lucky. Could've gone waaayy worse for you and your gurl.

According to D.I.D, 520 regular x ring chain is only rated for up to 750 c.c. Max.
