2005 Raptor 660 Chain

Tried adjusting the chain to take up a lot of slack ( stretched). Adjusted as far as I can and still way loose. Bought a new OEM chain to replace the old one. Problem is I do not have a master link in either the old chain or the new chain, so how am I supposed to put the new chain on? Watched a couple youtube videos and they all had master links. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Saw all the post saying cut the old chain off. I get that part but how do I put the new chain on. It baffles me that I would have to cut a brand new OEM chain to install it. The only other way I see is to drop the swing arm. If that is the case then Yamaha really screwed the pooch in their engineering and design.

You got a chain that’s complete? You’ll need either a clip link or a rivet link and tool to install.

If your chain is continuous with no link, you need the remove your swing arm to put it on. Not too difficult of a job and greasing the swing arm pivot bolt is always a good thing. A continuous chain is stronger than one with a link but obviously not simple to remove and install.
