It was a big mistake to buy non o-ring chains. They will cost 1/2 the price but o-rings will last 4 times longer. You should be able to remove rear tire with opening that masterlink. How many links you need is complitely up to you sproket sizes. You should also change both sprokets at the same go.

You don't need to remove the wheel, just pop the master link out and the chain will fall right off. Then thread the new chain on making sure to put the master link clip facing the correct direction, and adjust the chain slack. You will need to readjust it after your first ride as it will stretch some.

Just check your slack. You dont want it to tight, make sure there is plenty of play in your chain. Let it drag along your chain guides.
The old saying goes like this" change your chain and sprockets all together so they last longer". Poof, just an old saying.
oh one other thing, the o ring chain and the regular chain. the o ring is suppose to keep dirt out of the chain. Thats funny

While your there get a rear sprocket. You put that new chain on an old sprocket and it won't last.
Where are you in Ontario?

How about putting a gear on and using a air ratchet

an air ratched won't do anything, it's keeps turning even when im in gear.
What kind of clutch do you have ? with normal clutch when the gear is on only way to turn front sproket is actually to turn piston too. Oh well you can also put screwdriver, tiretool or something between block and front sproket to prevent it to move. Or easiest way is put your new chains on (even when they are lose) and then remove it ?
