Chain removal procedure
Hey guys, just bought that Motion Pro chain remover/press/riveter tool. It's a nifty little gadget. I attempted to remove my chain with it last week, and I failed miserably. I actually ended up breaking the extractor pin that was designed to push the pin out of the chain. Here's my question:
How do you remove the pin from the chain?
According to instructions and most internet videos, you just put the tool on the chain and push the pin through! But, I also didn't notice(nor did they mention) that if it was a master link they were extracting from, or another random link on the chain. I saw a few videos with a grinder of some sort to grind down the rivet from the master link to push it through. I would do that if I had such a tool...
