Diy Chain Rivet Tool

DIY CHAIN RIVET TOOL

All you need is cheap pipe flaring tool, and a C-clamp...



Now, turn the screw in each tool counter clockwise until the adapters pop off.......



Now, take the adapter from the flaring tool and install it onto the C-clamp. If it doesnt fit right (or at all) dont worry, it doesnt have to stick to the screw.....



Now you can rivet your chain links..........





I hope this helps someone as broke as I am.

Yes, my bike is nasty.

Great idea, I think most of us already have both those tools. I didn't want to spend the $100 on a riveting tool back when I powdercoated all the parts on my CBR600RR so I used a die grinder to remove the rivets then replaced the chain link with an RK clip style chain link. They are still pretty reliable and are also reusable but now that you've shown us how to use the C clamp I think it's worth always installing a rivet style chain link.

interesting idea. i'll have to go look in my toolbox when i get home and see if i have that pipe tool or not.

build a man a fire and he's warm for a day. light a man on fire and he's warm for the rest of his life.

1/2 drive air wrench, and make sure you have plenty of air pressure built up in your compressor.
