I am planing on purchasing a bicycle engine. What Chaintool Can i use for the chain?

Ive read that you have to buy a correct one for the 415 chain but I just used my cheepo bicycle one and it worked fine. Just make sure you have the pins lined up.

I think that Dans BMX has 415 chains and masterlinks.

I used a brass hammer and a punch over a block of solid steel with a hole in it for the pin to fall through. Works great.

i would get a chain breaker from a motorcycle shop. I picked one up for under 20 bucks.

Really? Why? Thats what I paid for my bicycle that I put the motor on. That is more than the price of a good kmc chain to replace the POS chain that the kit came with. What advantage is there in buying a tool that is better than the **** you are working with?
