I bought a RK 525gxw chain sprocket kit this spring. I bought it online & I can't remember the seller. Anyway, it came with a clip link, and the link broke and I can't find one anywhere. Only rivets. Any ideas? Any help would be much appreciated.

I checked all my local shops...bought two different 525 links...both were too short. I don't have a rivet tool and I don't want to take off my swingarm just to put the chain on. I'm thinking that maybe the seller put in a 530 clip link.

Different brands and models of chain are different widths.
You will need a link for your particular brand and model of chain unless you can get measurements of different links and find one the same.
Also, do not use a link from a chain that is rated to a lower tensile strength than yours.
