    Hello, i cut my chain pretty short because I was having trouble with the chain tensioner and had to slip about half of the Chain off of the sprocket to install the master link. I was trying to slip rest of the chain back on the sprocket by rolling the tire and I broke my chain. Not the master link but the metal on the main chain snapped. I still have almost all of the chain but it is to short master link so can i repairrepair it with half linkslinks?

    Sounds like you have a smaller to replace with a 415 chain...

    a too-tight chain will often break and the place at which it comes apart is rarely the only part damaged - rather than patch a chain that may have a lot of weak links now, you should just get a new one (and hopefully, not cut it so short)
