    Chain Riveting

    I need to replace the chain on my Ducati. So, I got the new chain and it will be easy enough to remove the old chain. But....I'm wondering if I can use a standard rivet gun to rivet the master link or will I need a special chain rivet tool. If I do need a special rivet tool, does anyone have one that I might be able to borrow ?
    Thanks

    you'll need the tool, standard rivot gun won't cut it.

    It's all water under the bridge, and we do enter the next round-robin. Am I wrong?

    John I have one, but I am over an hour away from you. Maybe if I take a ride up there one night you can use it. Or feel free to take a ride to get it...

    I've got the motion pro chain riveter. You're welcome to borrow it. I'm leaving for London tomorrow at 2pm though so it'd have to be before then, or I get back next tuesday if you can wait that long.

    Don't know where you're located, but I have the tool and will be doing a friends chain later this week. I'm in central mass and have plenty of garage space if you want to ride down after work some time. PM me if your interested. I just did my chain and sprockets and it's a piece of cake.

    if you only want to ride the bike to the end of the driveway then use a regular rivet gun

    the tool isnt a "rivet" persay.. but it more peens over the pins. usually a chain breaker tool also comes with a peener... huh huh.. i said peener
