85 Ninja 600R timing chain question

I'm rebuilding a 85 Ninja 600R and having trouble with the timing chain. The one that's on there is broken from a failed repair attempt by a previous owner. The chain is routed right in the middle of the cylinder bank and can't just be fished in and out like the newer ones. Any ideas on how to replace this timing chain without stripping the motor down to the crank? Thanks!

Pull off the oilpan and you should be able to get it routed around if you're very very careful and have a helper or two to hold from the top or bottom.

I like that idea, I'll give it a shot.
