I dont have any spacer. Thanks for responding guys. I should be getting the new master link this wed so hopefully i can ride this weekend. Can i use the screw type link on D.I.D chain or just Ek?

stunter I use the same stuff... so far I like it... as for link I replace chain and sprockets a couple week ago and donít have a tool for master link so I ordered the screw type and it was easy to install with no issues

This too is what I use.
I got it shipped from Wal Mart- of all places!
I got 6 cans so I got free shipping.
Definitely has less chain lube fling off on the bike anyways.

gixxer6002007 ooops sorry, the different is about .4mm but its hard to move by hand and it does stay a little kinked. Will it be ok to ride for a little bit till i get a new master link? I'll probably be changing it next week or so.

coreyyok What did you use to crimp the link? The 2-4mm sounds like alot if difference unless you crushed the link. If you plan on doing much bike mantinace I would look into investing in a chain tool to brake/rivet masterlinks. You can get them for little money and they make things much easier. I would check with calipers the link widths and your master and if it's binding can cause sprocket or chain damage. That could be dangerous for you and others around you if something fails. So, at the very least I would get a new link and ty again.

Sounds like you got the wrong link up there. I'd get a new one and redo it.
04-21-2019 09:12 AM
Todd_Sails What measurement are you getting 2-4mm less on? The width of the chain? That sounds like a lot. It doesn't kink? On a rear stand it rulls freely w/o one one or more of the links staying at an angle? Did it move freely by hand.

We may need some more info and the experts on here will be able to help I'm sure.
