I have 3 different chains and gearing for my SM , but I only have 2 master links. I buggered one up. Now there are different Manufacturers of my chains and I have been told by my LBS that I cannot interchange master links and chain brands. they also will not get me a new masterlink, they say I have to buy a new chain

Has anyone done this swap?

I measured out all the pin thickness and plate spacing as well as the pitch of the chain, the dimensions are with in thousands of an inch. other than some minor diffrences of the chains can the look really close. Thanks in advance for your opinions

A am going to guess it is a patent thing as every chain manufacturers masterlink is different.

Do you know what brand and model chains you have?

Most shops do not want to stock the links because they come in a pack of 5. If you want all 5 they should be more than happy to order you the right ones.

I have one RK 520SO and 2 Stock Suzuki 520 O-ring chains. If master links are sold in 5 packs, I think that I may need to try a couple more shops. Thanks
