    Hi all, i'm looking to buy a chain breaker for 415 chain, Ive checked ebay and the net, and suppliers mentioned on this site, but can't find one, I'm in Australia but i'm quite happy to buy overseas for one around 20 dollars U.S., I have a Huasheng 4 stroke kit to fit on to a chopper/lowrider style bike i have built, anyone know where i can get a good chain breaker for this price?:smile:

    This is the Chain tool I use. It is for motorcycles, and will still work on bike chains, but it is so big I prefer my small cheap bicycle chain tool

    There are a bunch listed on ebay. Use the term "chain tool"

    you can always grind off the rivet head and then drive the pin out with a nail

    Good call! I use that part tool myself. I've had several smaller ones, and none compare.

    Hi guys. I live in Adelaide, Australia and rang Pacific Brands Leisure and Fitness who are the Australian distributors of Park Tool products. They said they could get a chain tool out in about a couple of days. You have to pick up from a bike shop though.

    I was told the CT-7 will cost approximately $110.00 (Aussie $). Don't know whether I will need one yet for my 415 chain, so will hold off on buying until I've had a go at installing the chain. I'm in the process of making my very first motorised bicycle.

    Park tool normal size more or less worked on mine. Occasionally it packed up but we could make it work. No good for putting rivets back in the chain though.

    I'm with Bill, Buy a hand grinder. Grind off the tips and pop the link out. Then you get to use the grinder again and again on other projects.

    Yeah...I'm not paying $110.00 for a chain breaking tool I will barely use. I'm going to get the angle grinder and grind off the tips; then knock out with a hammer and centre punch.

    I used just a hammer and centre punch today with the chain in a vice. It worked but the chain plate bent a little bit. So I'll use the grinder as well; just got to go and purchase one.

    I just removed the parts of a cheap chain tool that were in the way.They break off quite easily.
    One of those removed parts is for lining up the chain tool pin with the chain rivet. The other is for loosening the tight link after pushing the rivet back in.
    With those parts missing, a little more care must be used to line up the pin with the rivet. The tight link can be loosened by placing your thumb on the tight link, and flexing the chain sideways.
    Be careful to not push the pin all the way out, but rather leave the pin slightly protruding on the inside of the side plate. That way when you put the ends of the chain back together the protruding pin will hold the ends together, making it easier to push the pin back in.

    Two thumbs up for the Park ct-7, far better than the ct-5, or the no-name I bought from Staton

    I bought a real nice heavy duty chain breaker from Lowe's for $23.00. It's
    the same tool used by many bike shops.
