Re: Removing the chain master link
If it's a press fit link (the sort you need a tool or clever bodgery to put on)then it'll be a bugger to remove with leverage from a screwdriver, probably quicker to use a chain splitter to cut it off and use a new link to replace it.
Are you removing it to replace the chain or is it going back on. I only ask because I've seen the same size split/rivet links from different manufacturers refuse to go back on so make sure you get the right split link if putting it back on.
