Chain Breaker tool
Ive got a little 87 250 CMX that i have recently replaced the chain for. When I installed the chain, i didnt place the wheel in the right position and i need to remove 1 maybe 2 links.
When i first bought the chain, it was obviously too long and i found myself a chain breaker tool. I watched videos and read the instructions for the tool so I'm fairly confident I did it correctly, and ya know, the tool broke. the pins just spiraled bent into the tool, and it pressed the links together so hard, it wouldnt rotate on the link rivet. So i took it to a shop and they cut it for me.
Now, im just trying to remove one link.
i thought, "well, the instructions said not to grind off the rivet, and that didnt work last time" so i ground down the rivet of the pin i was trying to remove and then tried the chain breaker (i left one side un-ground so the tool had something to stay seated on). Still, the tools pins smashed down, pressed together the links and didnt budge the rivet. but it absolutely destroyed that link on the chain.
So did i get a ****ty tool? did i get a chain that doesnt break with a chain breaker tool? (it came with a master link)
Not sure where i need to go here.
