Brakable chain kink
« on: 16 June 2020, 11:22:13 am »
Good morning all.

As we all know the CK's use chain drive, and each chain has a breakable link, which can be a real pain to ping that darn little spring plate bit off.
What I found makes life much easier is
take a cheep pair of needle nosed pliers and remove approx. 2mm from one end only, now it can fit on straight giving more force and not angled to the spring plate making life a little easier and less likely to slip off.

Any chance of photo?   Of the pliers, not your chain "kink"?!
