I need to replace the chain and sprockets on my 6r. The bike has done 13,000 miles. It is a January 96 F1. It still has the original endless EK chain on it. I will cut the chain off with a grinder, as I don't really want to remove the swing arm and suspension! My local supplier has a replacement EK chain at a good price. The brochure says that EK have a new link that can be fitted without a riveter. This uses 8mm bolts and pliers. Has anyone used this before? Is it any good? The problem is that I don't want to buy a riveter as they cost nearly as much as a new chain!
