How to Use a Motorcycle Chain Tool 

Using a Motorcycle Chain Tool to Break a Chain

Step 1. Insert the extractor spring and the extractor pin into the body bolt, then screw the extractor pin guide into the end of the body bolt until it's finger tight.

Step 2. Back off the extractor bolt until the extractor pin is recessed about 2mm into the extractor pin guide.
Step 3. Position the tool over the chain, and align the extractor pin with the pin of the chain you want to push out.

Step 4. Tighten the body bolt so it is snug against the chain and is securing it in place.

Step 5. Use a wrench to tighten the extractor bolt and drive the pin out from the chain. 

NOTE: There will be a lot of resistance at first, but once the pin is broken loose the resistance will lessen.

Step 6. Once the pin has been pushed through, back off the extractor bolt, then the back off the body bolt, and remove the old chain.

Using a Motorcycle Chain Tool to Make a Chain - Clip Method

Step 1. Using a digital caliper, measure the distance between the outer plates of the new chain you'll be installing.

Step 2. Grease the new chain's master link, outer plate and the O-rings. 

NOTE: Never assemble a new chain without greasing the parts first.

Step 3. Put an O-ring on each of the new master link's pins, then install the master link into the chain. Next, install another O-ring on each of the pins and then install the outer plate.


Step 4. Back off the extractor bolt so the extractor pin is retracted within the body bolt, and install the press plate to the extractor pin guide.

Step 5. Position the tool over the chain, and align the press plate with the pins of the new master link.


Step 6. Slowly tighten the body bolt so it presses the new outer plate down onto the pins. The outer plate must not be too tight, or it will compress the O-rings and cause the chain to kink. Tighten the body bolt a half turn, then stop and measure the distance between the outer plates of the new master link. Continue tightening, pausing and remeasuring until the chain measurement is correct.

Step 7. Install the new chain clip to the new master link. Make sure the front of the clip (the enclosed end) is facing the direction the chain will be travelling in when the motorcycle is running.
