I have the chain and sprockets for the VFR and I realized I needed a proper chain tool. The old one is an endless chain and that's what I got to replace it. I had a breaker but no way to rivet a new link. I checked the two people I thought might have one and since they didn't...I'm the new owner of a Motion Pro PBR. The DID chain packaging recommended their tool. Looks like a nice tool. It's crazy expensive however. I almost shit. 150 to 200 bucks for this guy. Anyway, I bought the Motion Pro tool. I used bolt cutters to remove the old chain so I can't say how it works for pressing pins out. I'll let you know about the other functions.
I spent two hours just cleaning. This bike is a hot mess. It's cleaning up nice though. The rear bearing assembly has some scary sideplay so I need to look into that. It does rotate nicely. I had read about some freezing up. I may just have to pull it all apart just to inspect things for my own peace of mind.
I took Friday off so with the four day weekend I should be able to make some real progress. I'm eager to get her back on the road but not at the expense of tearing shit up. This thing ain't a hammer. More like a sewing machine. I need to treat it as such.
