Thanks for the tip.

No spring washer and the screw/bolt isn't a cheese head. I there a recommended dealer who can supply these parts?

Sorry, its just dawned on me that the bolt/washer/cam are actually engine parts, not ignition parts so I might be able to get them from one of the usual parts suppliers, Draganfly, Bournemouth Bantams etc.

Thanks for the offer. I will have a fiddle over next couple of weeks and let you know. Im not sure if I will need the cam, probably just the screw, flat washer and locking washer. Do you have these? Alan

Used my new digital vernier for first time yeaterday. Surprised to find reading for rear spindle was .40 inch/11mm. I believe this is 7/16 when converted. I was expecting 1/2 inch.

Strange.

I seem to have twisted the sliding part of my split link. Will i need to buy a new split link or can the sliding part be purchased separately? I should add i dont know the specification of the chain as it was on the bike when k bought it. Alan

I dont think you would be able to buy the split link clip separately, I think you might have to buy the complete split link

I don't agree, for the cost of a new link you are potentially risking the chain coming loose, with all sorts of possible outcomes, including serious injury.

I suggest you refer to this topic in FAQs to determine the chain size, then buy a complete link.

The link is not going to break .All it does is stop the side plate moving .if it is home in the slot then it is doing its job.if its dimensions have been changed by corrosion then a new one is needed.Ovalized holes in the side plates are a no no.

I’m not sure I would risk heating up the clip considering the cost of a new link is so low. The OP has said the clip was twisted, and sufficiently so to believe a new one was required. That twist will have imparted stress to the metal of the clip, and I agree the clip bears no longtitudinal stress which is all taken by the actual link. However,the clip does take a sideways force to prevent the link slipping out. The locating hole may be mis-shapened due to the twist and the metal weakened, heat will allow the main part of the clip to be straightened, and will also remove some of the stress damage that may have occurred but I would only use a clip like this in an absolute emergency. Remember a chain coming apart at even just 40 mph can do a lot of damage to both machine and rider. Is it worth the risk for a part that probably costs less than £5?

I understand what you mean, John - but if you heat the clip to red, you probably de-temper it, so losing the spring that holds it in place in the grooves of the pins. It may stay in position without a problem, but for the cost of a replacement, is it worth it?

And if there should be a problem which causes a serious accident and the clip is found to be the cause, what would the insurance company do?

Just not worth the risk in my opinion, especially as Alan admits he's not very skilled in these matters (no offence meant, Alan).

I havent had time to study the link provided in detail. Am I correct in saying I can tell the spec of the chain (and therefore the type of split link I need) by simply counting the number of links?

No, you need to measure the links, as per the table in the link supplied (no pun intended), or google chain sizes.

Ah yes... this 420 v imperial problem ..which is why I thought better the devil.. because the 'WRONG ' clip is a menace it.I apologize if I seem a bit casual as to safety .. sometimes a rap over the Knuckles is a good  thing.

Above is a split link for sale on Ebay, if seller is correct should fit a D1. 

Might be worth a punt.

Surely simplest and safest would be to ring a chain supplier ( the one I use have a sprocket in their name ),I found them very helpful. Explain the situation and inform them you will send your link as a pattern, they will very likely tell you how much to send with your pattern, once they receive it , you will have a new link by return of post.

Chippy.
