Ebay chain splitter?

Was going to buy a chain splitter on eBay for 15 but feedback wasn't great they said it wasn't that powerful, so went to demon_tweeks and found a Sealey chain tool bit more expensive but at least I recognise the name Also looked at a Bergen Any ideas re a good quality chain tool? Thanks

You can use the ebay one but grind the link pins down first.

Have you considered simply replacing a link with a master? You could grind out a link then drill/grind out the pins and replace that link with a master and never have this trouble again. Don't have to worry about getting a crap tool that way or swedging the pin when you put it back.

By master link do you mean one of the links with a clip on it? I had used these on my FZR400 and twice the clip came off despite being fitted correctly. I would never trust them on a big bike!

Hope the Sealey one has done the job though

Did you have the clip facing the wrong way? I've never experienced a clip coming off. Dirt bike, at, 900 lb cruiser, 1400 cc sport bike, you name it. I know a guy who test rides for Harley in AZ, they always use them.

The cheap tools swage the hollow ended rivets perfectly, but don't be tempted to press out the old link without grinding off the rivet head; the cheap tools most always bend or fall apart if you attempt this.
