Chain Connecting Links
Chain connecting links come in many varieties but the two most popular are the clip and the rivet type. Connecting links are used during chain installation or maintenance to join the loose ends of the chain to form one complete loop. Clip connecting links are generally used for low displacement motors or off-road motorcycles as they generally can tolerate less power but can be installed or removed using hand tools. Rivet connecting links are the most popular chain connector (sometimes referred to as a master link) for on-road or performance motorcycles but require an additional chain tool or a trip to the mechanic for installation. We recommend rivet connecting links for most road applications.
