  1. Easy chain change w/o rivet tool (EK link)

    V-Strom Service & Maintenance Questions/Discussion
    I changed the chain on my 2002 V and it went smoother than imaginable. First, I couldn't see any wear at all on the rear sprocket so I decided not to change it. I know some people will disagree but no wear is no wear. It saves a lot of work and some expense. Check out the first picture...
  2. How to get chain back on bike

    V-Strom Service & Maintenance Questions/Discussion
    The other day I was riding my DL 650 and the chain came off (it did not break). I am now trying to get it back on. The problem is that I cannot find a "master link" to the chain. How should I proceed to get the chain back on the sprockets?
