Maybe I stand Corrected
I think I did the same search on Parts shop and I took it to say that you needed the master link to go along with the chain and it still needed to be crimped like the original. Hopefully I'm wrong becuse I intend to change my chain out as well this Summer, and I've priced the tool as well, and for $190. I have better use of my money. I think the master link is still a part of the complete chain that must be purchased seperately, but isn't the easy slip clip master we all would hope for.
