520 Chain Question - Preferred Master Link
I will start off and admit that I have not been very good at keeping my chain lubed properly--something I will now be more diligent about. I wore out the stock chain at 14000 miles and now my after market chain is heading towards needing replaced soon with only 15000 miles. (I replaced front and rear sprockets at the same time I did the chain).
My question for the forum is what is "your" preferred master/connector link? I presently using the EK Chain brand Screw Type connector link. Before I pull the trigger on what I am ordering new I was looking for other feed back. The other option I would consider is the Rivet Type but that requires the $100 tool.
The Clip Type would cause me extra worry to make sure it never came loose but I have one of those on my KLR and it has never given me any grief.
Any input would be appreciated--thanks!
