To prevent poor shifting and uneven drivetrain wear, most manufacturers recommend chain replacement at or before 1% stretch. Now you can quickly and accurately determine the wear and stretch of any chain with Park's Chain Checker. Simply insert the Chain Checker’s pins into 2 links, press the swingarm gauge tight, and then check the gauge window for an accurate reading!
This small chain tool goes anywhere and actually performs like a shop quality tool. The fine thread, special "V"-shaped handle, and super strong replaceable pin make chain removal and installation a breeze. The CT-5 works on any derailer chain (including Hyperglide®) and has a "shelf" for loosening tight links. At only 77 grams, it1s the perfect take-along chain tool. Works great on 9 speed chains as well.
Park MLP-1 Master Link Pliers Many derailer chains, especially our favorite SRAM brand, use a "master link" (SRAM calls it a "Power Link") that allows the chain to be installed and removed by hand. While this type of masterlink doesn't require a traditional chain tool, over time, dirt and corrosion can make it difficult to separate by hand. MLP-1 Master Link Pliers make removal and replacement of these masterlinks quick and effortless. Simply insert the specially sized jaws into the masterlink and squeeze the handles.
