We need pics! I'm guessing the hole is too large to patch? On trips I carried the cold weld epoxy stick stuff and JB Weld. Never had to use it though.
I've taken three 525 chains to the breaking point on two different bikes, but I've managed to catch it before total failure.
One bike shop wouldn't put the new chain on when I got caught out on a trip, had to self install in their parking lot, used a clip master. At least they cut the chain for me, took them two tries though and they let me borrow a pair of vice grips and a nut.
Very odd that a bike dealer would refuse the work, a tech came out and helped tighten things back up. He didn't understand the manager either, they weren't that busy. Wish I could remember the dealer name. Total jerks running the place, they sold Yamahas near Abingdon, VA. Charged me way over retail for a cheap no name chain, I didn't complain though. I was glad to have it, lasted me only 8,000 miles though. But at least I could finish my trip to NY!
