Chain riveting

  1. Hello all,

    I am replacing the chain on my V-Strom, a first for me. I read all the tutorials and bought the DID knock-off chain break/rivet tool. All goes well until the riveting, and the tool bends, the 2 sections separate and no more riveting can be done :(
    I can battle it out with the UK seller later, but now I really want to get the bike back on the road. Is there anyone in the Penrith/Western Sydney area willing to help me out or lend me a good tool to finish the job? Payment in alcohol :)

  2. i have one, but on the coast... welcome to borrow it. ill be in north ryde on monday if that helps :)
  3. PM sent
    I'm from Penrith which is local to you.
