NO worries OP. You DON"T have to break that gold chain. Seriously, its a very easy process. When you remove the axle(and axle blocks), it relieves the pressure to the rear sprocket from the chain. When that pressure is relieved, there is enough play in the rear wheel to simply move it forward, drop it down, and pull it out to access your sprocket.

You overpaid something fierce unless that included labor.

Chain and sprocket set(front and rear) is in the $175 range.

You should also be able to get 25,000miles out of a stock chain and sprockets on a 600, even more on a 650.

I must have read something wrong.

Getting that chain over the sprocket before sliding the axle though might end up being a bitch though assuming you get it off with the chain in tact in the first place.

If for some reason it doesn't work out. Just buy a new rivet style master for your chain (they make them in gold since you already have one), then buy a rivet tool and chain breaker. Then just break the chain, loop it around the sprocket and put the new master link in.

If the other way works out cool, but if not doing what I just said is what most people do by default and isnt a big deal.

No weebel, by default people remove the wheel without cutting any links in the chain.

Like already said, if the new sprockets are the same size as what he's replacing then he doesn't need to cut his chain for ANY reason.

Weebel you either missed something or you've never removed a wheel from a bike.

Why? Why in the hell would that be a bitch? Take the adjusters all the way in, push the wheel forward and flip the chain off the sprocket. This isn't rocket science.

And for the OP, take the front sprocket off first that way you can use the rear brake to keep the motor from turning over while removing the front. (Unless you have a shit rear brake like I do in which case that bitch will still spin.)

Don't even need to do that. Remove axle and brake caliper. Push wheel to swingarm. Remove chain from sprocket. Remove wheel.
