Default Sprocket chain question

So about a month ago I was on a road trip and my chain broke so took it to a shop down there, wanted a good chain so i could make it back home, one of the ones that you can't take off, some special rivit tool you to put on. now it's time for new sprockets is there a way I can change them without having to get a new chain?

Loosen the axle, pull the axle out, slide the rear wheel forward then down, and you should be able to take it all the way out.

WTF really?

You just break the chain and use a new master link assuming the chain is still good. It is recommended that you replace the chain along with a sprocket change but if the chain is still pretty new its not a big deal.

If you can't get it off without breaking the chain. Just grind the master off with a dremel or something (the correct way) and get a clip type master for a couple of bucks that can be put on with hand tools. If you dont have access to said power tool, a chain breaker is going to cost less so just do it the right way if thats the case.

I know you are just trying to save money but if this costs to much then affording proper maintenance on the bike is going to be hard for you. Not trying to be a dick or anything.

But no one removes a wheel in the way that has been mentioned when you take it in for service, thats something you try to do in a rare circumstance at home lol.

He is under the false impression that the chain can not be removed. It can.

Cocaine's a helluva drug.

I guess he completely looked past the fact that zvenkruspe was making a reference to Flexxx's post. A herpa der.

Make sure the new sprockets are the same size or the chain may not fit back on.

I gave a very SIMPLE way to remove the rear tire/rim to access the sprocket and zvenkruspe was just agreeing. You must've had those shades on in your avatar when you were reading that one...
