I remove and clean my chain after every 3rd ride. My question is, how often should I put a new masterlink? The clip hasn't deformed yet. Should I change everytime I take it off? Thanks

I wouldnt worry about it unless its damaged. For reference, My 08 has over 100 hours with the stock chain and masterlink. No issues yet. I run a 52 tooth sprocket which causes the clip to wear thin from running on the chain guard. I'll be replacing it soon.
