chain rivets/ Breaker!?

got the rear off...chained out the sprockets....gunna put on the new 520 EK chain tonight. HOWEVER....

i have a chain breaker/ riveting tool that i got from the stealership..

but the stock chain on my F4i has rivets on every link. so isn't it impossible for the chain breaker tool to push the chain pins through and out the side plates..if the ends of every pin is riveted so the pin DOES NOT slide out.?

i've never broke a chain before...im just wondering how to get the rivited pins out?

the dealership gave me the $90 riviter/breaker tool so it should work..but im not quite sure.

thanks in advance for all the help u mechanically inclined give me..

WRISTRIDER!!! YOU'RE STILL ALIVE!!!

Mate, just cut the old chain off with an angle grinder. You're just going to bin it anyway, so why do it by pushing a pin out???

Being alive and being a good rider are two different things, my friend.

You NEVER stop learning when you're on a bike. My point stands, though. You could have been a better rider.

oh god. dont even start this up again. i could have been a better rider? what if i started on a 250cc or 500.?! i proved my point that you can start on a 600 sportbike and improve immensely, and be a great rider.

you know, my one of my friends is just getting into riding and i would do a little test. Start him out on a 250 and in a year see if he is a more skilled rider then me after a year of my 600 sportbike. but then again i would be wasting everyones time because i already know the outcome. I improved just as fast if not faster on my bike. no questions asked. you've never ridden with me, i do everything to the book, as well as push limits and improve gain experience.

so dont tell me i could have been a better rider.

nice talking to your 'oh so wise self again though

You'll never know, will you?

Anyway, it's been fun. Let's do it again sometime.
