GY6 Cam Chain breaking / master

8 posts in this topic

Posted

  When I first started getting into stroking the GY6, I read somewhere that you could break the cam chain and extend it to allow for spacers or whatever. I sort of ignored that since I knew I was going to have block open, I would just replace chain. Well.... I am no looking into cam chain breakers and master links....

  I CANNOT FIND MASTER LINKS FOR CAM CHAINS ANYWHERE!!!! Anyone know where I can find them!!?

I found nil to none on almost any configuration.

Some old Honda twins used the and thats about it and current available is a press fit peened pin fit

I don't remember what my masters were blowing off but I learned on day one they didn't work and know body used them.

I think your under similar load conditions and maybe playing with fire on a master link in the cam chain.

Can't you use a rivet like they do now on dirt bike drive chains, hardly anyone uses master links any more.

For the record, I contacted every source I knew of looking for master links and could never locate them.
