    I move the transmission to adjust the primary chain - never have separated one.

    You would end up with two master links to make a usable chain. Even one is a liability. This is considerably less than $114...

    Ok
    anyway
    I have messed in numbers
    any tech comments?
    can be done?

    I thought about pressing one link out
    adding missing number resected from other chain
    and peening link pins again

    I understand that some of you may dislike it
    but I dont care
    just need tech comments

    I have 15 bikes in need
    can spend 2220 on 90pitch chains ( it cost 148$)
    or can spend 130 bucks on seventeen 82pitch chains
    these are leftovers from dixi stock

    difference is huge...

    Technically,no I have never been that stupid.
    I have seen others try going the cheap chain route on rear chains.
    Broken chains can & have wrapped around sprockets & crack cases.
