Default Need Quick Help: Chain Link Removal

     

Well, I got a new chain in today, and i need to cut two links off for it to fit my sprocket. I ground one side of the pin flush with the plate, and started whacking on it with a punch and hammer, it wont budge. Am I doing this right? (BTW, I do not have a chain breaker)

yes, make sure the pin has somewhere to go. i usually get a flatblade screwdriver inbetween the ground off link and pound it in like a wedge

I made sure the pin had a place to go, I put it in between two bricks.

Guess i just need to whack harder. BTW, i only ground one side of the pin flush, do i need to do the other?

nope. make sure the pin is totally flush. take a flathead and drive it down between the link. it will pop right off.

also, i was nailing the big stepdown triple sunday. seathoping it is the hot ticket. man that thing is sweet

Ren- make it easy on yourself and grind both pins off, then just pop the top plate off and you're done. This is how I've done both the chains I shortened and it worked great. The first time I used an angle grinder, the second time I used a Dremel- the angle grinder is much faster/easier

Good to hear you are makin it!

I've seathopped it before, but only made it to the first landing ramp, havent made it all the way to the second though. I suppose all that 4 stroke power comes in handy sometimes eh? Thats what it takes to clear that sucker I guess, you really have to torque out of that corner to make the jump.

BTW, I did get the chain broken. I did what cowboy said and ground 2 pins on the same link flat and then popped the link off with a screwdriver. Worked great. Then I discovered that the chain adjuster was frozen to the swingarm. D'oh.

When you going back to archers yardpro? I should be riding there this weekend.

Vet912, when seatbouncing a jump all you do is just sit on the seat of the bike in a normal position (or mabye slightly back on the seat) and stay on the gas all the way up the face of the jump. Right after you leave the jump you just stand up in the air. Remember to stay on the gas on the face of the jump, as seatbouncing will tend to make the bike want to endo, but as long as you keep on the throttle you will be fine.

good descritpion dell. seathopping is used to preload the suspension and get more distance from the jump.

i think i will be taking my brother in law this weekend. he's back from militairy academy, and is itching to ride. that place is both fun and easy, so he should love it.
