Huh. I've never seen a chain sold that was already connected, but I've never purchased a new OEM chain, only replacements that come with a rivet link. Never occurred to me to drop the swingarm, sounds easier to rivet the chain. Now I've gotta go look closely at my V's swingarm. Interesting. I guess I assumed that OEM chains were riveted together after putting them on. Perhaps they're put on first, then the swingarm afterwards. Well, not for your V swingarm, maybe.
