    That there looks like a clip type link that is missing the clip. Soon the whole chain will be missing.

    Thanks everyone. That's how I got the bike from the previous owner. I'll order a master link and put a clip on it. The chain is almost ready to replace.

    I always put on a staked or peened master link. Permanent and the clip is no longer a worry.
    My preference. I know people are running clips on a 700 but it is not OEM that way.

    The only wild card in staked or peened master link ......is........it has to be done correctly. While itís not incredibly difficult with the proper tool and skills .........it can be done wrong.

    Here's something I learned when a friend's master link clip went AWOL and the chain was flung off his Versys-X as he was riding ahead of me: For a given chain size among different chain brands, the master links are not exactly alike. One brand's master link may or may not fit on another brand's chain. Buy/carry a link of the same brand (and size, of course) as the chain.

    Yes, but with the right tool (which I have) it is incredibly easy. I had my 11 yr old do it with me while I was coaching him. RK brand can be had for $90 on the net. Chain and sprockets for around that.
    Having a honda shop put on a stock chain and sprockets will cost you that much. Plenty of tutorials on doing it on YouTube. Having a dial or digital caliper is important to have.

    I have the tool and the skills to stake the master link pins and still prefer the clip type. While it doesn't take long to break and stake a chain it's just easier to pop the clip off and back on. Just my opinion.
