My local sport bike mechanic says don't use regular master link because they are dangerous? Any comments on this? I really don't like riveted chains because in the mountains or anywhere away from the garage with chain problems, it is a long hike. Master links (carry an extra in the kit) can be replaced. I did 15 years of enduros with regular old master links but finding chains with them now is getting difficult. I had to special order the one I will install tomorrow. Of course the real cure is never ride alone...
