    My second TW came with a 42t sprocket and an o-ring chain. I decided to replace the 42t sprocket with a 50t that I had laying around but the the o-ring chain was just a little to short. Rather than "waste" a new chain on used sprockets I decided to make do with what I had and spliced in a very short section of regular chain using a regular chain master link. I went for a short ride and it works just fine.







    "Cutting" the chain with a grinder: Before, during, and after.











    Long live the internal combustion engine!

    It's fine. It also illustrates the fact that if you throw a master link in the field you don't need an o-ring master link in order to get home. Any standard master will fit any o-ring chain, but not the other way around. Good luck finding an o-ring master to match your chain 500 miles from home.



    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    Powdercoated '87 frame, extended swingarm, YZ fork legs, ATV tire, 14/55, XT350 tank, spliced quick-release seat, disc brake conversion, beeg headlight, beeger rack, Lizrdcooler, Lizrdventz and bunch of other stuff all covered in invisible ink.
