You can buy the tool for less than $100 and do it yourself.

Thats crazy dude!! We charge 1.5 hours @ 50 hour so it comes to $75.00 and if you buy a tire and do it all at the same time we discount it a little bit off the top. For that kind of money I would buy the tool and do it yourself. Unless you live close to Daytona Beach, FL. We would be happy to take care of it for you ;-)

don't forget about the tools needed to replace both sprockets as well. because installing a new chain on worn sprockets is a step back in evolution.

Assuming you have some average tools like socket wrenches, stand, you should def try and do it yourself.

I cut my chain with a large pair of bolt cutters. The only tool you might have to buy is a chain rivetor(sp?) to put the new chain on.

Trust me it's fun working on your own bike. Save some cash, learn a few things, and feel good that you did it yourself!

Get the RK chain breaker and rivetter tool- best on the market for the money. they are $100 w/ free shipping from www.solomotoparts.com and as you've learned, they more than pay for themselves even after the first use!

hey yeah Dr. Gofast has a point. The chain breaker AND riveter is AMAZING! its really easy to do yourself and that tool pays itself off the first time! Definately do yourself make sure you know the exact length of your chain and where to break your chain at though!! Good Luck with the install!
