I've used other chain tools in the past, but this one is the best of the best, at least for my use.
The tool presses the plates on perfectly, no guess work, and oh so simple.
When it comes to riveting, it also excels in this area as well.
No need to measure the rivets, just use the tool as described, it perfectly sets the rivets on the perfectly positioned plates.
The tool quality is what I've come to expect from upper end tools, and the KM500 does not disappoint.
Excellent, it's one any good mechanic needs to have.
This is all use on my super Moto they last forever and I ride every day and I live on an island salt everywhere and I ride in salt water they hold up like a champ if I don't use it for a few weeks to clean a little bit of rust off of her but that's cause I ride in salty air and water. They are worth every penny
This kit comes with a 17 tooth front and a 45 tooth rear sprocket. Ordered it for my 2001 Yamaha R1 which is originally 16/43. I verified with customer service the right one was ordered. Item description does not specify teeth, so expected to be the same when it said it fit my bike. If you are not wanting to change gear ratio's, make sure you know what you currently have on your bike before ordering this kit.
Just replaced the drive train (chain and sprockets) and have a quiet, smooth ride. Too early to tell about durability with only 30 miles on the set up but the gold looks superb offsetting the black on black of my ride. So far so good and the true test will be next spring.
