Just wondering if any of you use a split link to join your chain? Everyone says that a rivet link is stronger but i think that people were using split links in the 80s even in motogp Shocked

Even today i hear that some racers use split links becuase they are easier for changing sprockets and they are perfectly safe.

What do you guys think Question

If your not sure,you are better to rivit it,as it is 1 less thing to worry about.My chain broke in mondello,so i rivit mine.The problem with a split link is,if you put it on the wrong way around ,it can come off.
Thats one thing about racing,everyone has a different opinion about everything. bounce

The dealer is spot on, split link it the right way round. And as long as your happy with that go for it. But if its something thats going to be at the back of your mind rivit it! Less on your mind the better, something even really small can affect your confidence big time on track. Like me forgetting my lucky t-shirt one time. Was all over the place Laughing

N.B .When fitting a split link,the open ends point away from the direction of rotation ,they have been know to fly off affraid
