Replacing chain

I have a 2003 Honda CBR 600 RR and i'm trying to change the chain out. But I haven't the first clue. First how do i determine if its 525 or 520. Second, is it better to take it to a dealer to install or do it myself. and if I do it myself what tools do I need? Thanks!

If you bought it new it's 525. Need something to cut the chain off. If you get a "C" clip then you just need hand tools to put the new one on, if you get a rivet on you will need the tool to put it on. It's doable if you have tools on hand. Wouldn't have the dealer do it. We can help. T

Agreed, they know what they are doing.

On a side note, make sure you don't hire the same dude who drilled through his friend ECU :icon_lol:

You have to have the cut and press tool if you want to do it yourself. I was about to do it myself with a couple local guys willing to help, but I decided to let the shop do it. It costs around $129 total for chain and sprockets replace.

This is the tool that everyone was talking about. It's both riveting and clip-on tool. I was lucked out and found one on ebay for $96 shipped. I searched around on Google and average price is about $107 for RK UTC (UCT4060). I heard there are other brands but also heard they break easily so I decided to go with a trustworthy brand. Here's one link.

The tool comes with clear instructions on how to do it. Here's the PDF version:

Most recommend doing rivet method for toughness. If you have question, post in this thread or PM me and I'll try to answer as much as I can.
