Where to Order master link

I need to get a DID 520 rivet style master link. Anyone know where I can order JUST the master link from? (DID 520 VM ZJ Connecting Link)

Not yet. I missed them today. The sprocket kit I ordered was supposed to have the chain cut to the right length, but when I riveted it on I realised it should have been about 1 link less. I want to cut a link off, but need a new master first, I don't trust re-using the other one.

Love the new gearing for the 600rr. Went from -1 front/stock rear to -1/+2 rear. Nice and peppy. Not happy being on the 5th notch on the adjustors with a brand new chain

Yeah, I always gear down a little bit.... I spend about 0% of my time at full WOT at the top of 6th, so I like to bring that power down to a more useable range. It may suck on the straight at say Mid-O, but the amount it increases the fun through the other 13 turns makes it all worth it!

Pickle.. last time I ordered a D&D for the 9R.. I got it and the extra link from kneedraggers!

Further... you can't remove just one link. I have explained this before...

- = inner
x = outer
* = master link

x-x-x-*-x-x

you have to remove a inner and outer in order to match it all up right..

Yeah, I know, I just refer to the inner and outer as one link. Theres room to remove both the inner and outer. Ill see if kneedraggers can hook me up.
