Broke it...
by Luke on March 25, 2008

I bought on of these kits last spring and it worked good though it was hard to get enough leverage to rivet. A few weeks ago I broke it back out to put on a fresh Renthal chain and I broke the breaking pin... the chain was apart so I went ahead and tried to rivet the new one... broke that too. Not sure what the difference was between the chains, but it sure wasnt up to the job with the Renthal chain. I am going to get the replacement parts and give it another shot...

  Tool works fine
by Doug on April 9, 2008

This tool works great as long as you know how to use it. I am a parts manager at a large motorcycle dealer and this is the one we sell. The only time that I've seen this tool break is during misuse. I always explain exactly how to properly use the tool to my customers, and I have never had one come back with a complaint. However, if you don't know what you are doing, you will break it.

Motion Pro response to Small Anvil replacement
by Casey Scott on October 20, 2010

For those of you who need to replace the Small Anvil from this kit, we do have a solution. This is not a normal replacement item for this tool, hence the reason you do not see it on the website for purchase. This item doesn't even have a part number. However, if you call or email Motion Pro, we can send you a free of charge replacement from our overstock. Please feel free to contact Motion Pro for assistance with any of our products-we're always happy to help.

Broke it
by George on June 1, 2008

I used this tool to replace the oem chain on an R6 this weekend, the 4mm tip broke while pushing the pin through the link. I did grind the head off of the rivet first as recommended. Great one time use tool, I expected it to be a bit more durable.

Awesome Tool
by Joseph on June 5, 2008

This tool is awesome. I used it to change the 525 chain on my Tuono, which was the first time I have ever changed a chain by myself. If you follow the directions to GRIND OFF the pin head, the tool pushes it through like butter. I found the directions to be thorough and very easy to follow. I am extremely happy with my purchase.

I have owned my motion pro chain tool for a year now. I work for a multi line dealer, I use the tool all the time and i have never had a problem with it, but then again I do read instructions first and i know how to use my tools.

Broken Pins
by Gerald on September 15, 2008

I have an 05' Tiger, and my Dad an 04 Bonnie. We share the kit and ended up with broken pins. The pins broke due to user error. I know it's easy to blame the supplier for making a bad product, but in my experience it's user error 90% of the time. The reason the pins broke: in the 6 months in between uses we didn't reread the instructions and forgot to grind the rivet. Our bad. When used per instructions it works great. Hell, you can even use it to press larger rivets than it's designed to remove. Please, read the instructions. Know your bike. Know your chain.

  Great Tool!
by Tim on October 21, 2008

This tool has been outstanding! I've used four times so to install chains on varies motorcycles and it has been great. I've used it on three 530 chains and a 525 chain. Each use of the tool included breaking the old chain and then riveting the new one. One of the pins did break when I loan the tool out to a friend who rushed the job and broke it. He didn't grind the old rivet head off the chain before trying to press the rivet out of the old chain.

  Not just me
by Chad on October 21, 2008

I am glad that the issue of broken pins is not just me but disheartened at the same time. The riveting capability has never been a problem but I will continue to fully grind the pins off instead of using the tool from now on.

by Andrew on November 16, 2008

The pin on the tool might be binding. Put some oil on the end of it before using it. The harder you twist to try and drive out the stubborn chain pins, the more binding pressure on the tool pin before...poof - spiral fracture.

shop owner
by William on December 11, 2008

I use this tool all the time including my techs. Went to Wyotech motorcycle tech school and they told us to always grind the pin heads off-unless you don't have access to a grinder at the track or other this should be done. Most of the time the reason I see one break is the tool was not lined up straight or head was not ground off rivet. Make sure you are lined up on the pin and don't catch an edge of the masterlink. Some guys at the track I see using it use the wrong size push pin and break them on the heavier chains. If you inspect the ends of the push pins after multiple uses sometimes the ends flare a little. In this case just file the edge down a little to maintain the correct diameter. This also causes the edge to catch if not checked. Just got a new heavy duty breaker and like it even more.

Worked Great
by John on January 25, 2009

Followed the online instructions and sanded down the rivets and everything worked great. First time doing the chain and was quick and easy.

on October 20, 2011

I bought this kit several weeks ago and have been very disappointed. In using the breaking pin on a 530 chain the breaking pin broke off. I also found it difficult to get enough leverage to press the press plates on while lining up the pins on the master link with the holes in the press plate. I finally drilled the holes slightly bigger and found that worked much better. I definately would not buy this kit again! I absolutly do not feel that I got the quality I paid for.

  Broke it!!
on January 29, 2014

Follow the instructions and use a grinder to grind off the rivet, or it WILL break the pin. I ground off the rivets on the stock 525 chain, but figured the tool would handle the new 520 chain (being that it's smaller)and the pin broke. So, Take your time and GRIND THE RIVET,everything else worked great.

  Response to Broke it!!
by Chain Breaker and Riveting Tool on January 30, 2014

We do recommend grinding off rivet heads first when breaking #520 or larger drive chain. This will significantly reduce the load on the tool and help prevent premature wear or damage to the breaking tips. But we have also continued to evolve our chain tools for increased strength to keep pace with today’s stronger chains. Following the set up instructions are also highly recommended for top performance, an incorrectly aligned or set up chain breaker poses a higher risk of damage to the pin. We include detailed instructions for all of our chain tools that can also be found on our website like the one included here for this tool.
