    Hey all!

    New to this forum, my Dad ‘Adventerous Oaters’ raves about y’all.

    I have just ordered new chain and sprockets for my DR in Dunners and am wondering if anyone local has a chain breaker I could borrow to do the job. (parts should be here Monday)

    Currently a student and would rather stumble through doing it myself than go without the number of beers it would cost to pay someone to do it.

    Cheers in advance.

    If you aren’t worried about keeping the old chain a saw or grinder will do it. I ground through my last chain to get it off.

    So the old boy finally got you on a DR huh.

    Haha Adventure Riding NZ He sure did and I am hooked!

    So the old chain is beyond farked and I have no concerns grinding it off, my issue is does the new one need any joining or adjusting or is it normally purchased good to go? have ordered an x-ring?

    The new chain should come with a joining clip in theory, either a circlip style or a rivet style.
