New chain master link installation
I just replaced the final drive components on a 03 1000ss, and installed a new Did 525 chain with rivet type master link.
No problem, until I got to the point of deforming the master link pins with the chain tool.
I'm not exactly sure how much to torque down the tool to get adequate deformation at the end of the pins. I torqued them pretty well, but there doesn't seem to be as much "mushrooming" as I thought there would be.
Since it's my first time doing this, any advice as to what the final product should look like would be appreciated.
