Has anyone have any insight on installing new chain with a rivit master link.?

If you are too cheap or don't want to wait you can use a grinder or dremel tool and grind down the rivet and use a punch to drive it out. If you do it that way make shure that it is on the rear sprocket so that it wont have tension on it. I bought the cheap chain breaker from rockymountainatv for 10 bucks while I ordered my new sprockets and chain. I think that the easyest way is the chain breaker. I have done both ways on bigger chains and motorcycle chains and the best/fastest way is the chain breaker. I think that it is worth the money.
