I recently purchased a conversion kit which I will pilot on a LWB ER clone. As a cheap kit, the 1/4" drive chain between the motor and the hub was missing. I've ordered a new chain, but find that my standard chain tools won't work for breaking and reconnecting the chain. Is there a special chain tool available or has someone found a hack for this?
TIA, jim

There should be a quick link on the #25 chain. If not order one with the new chain. Online stores like Monster Scooter parts sell this stuff including a chain tool which you can do without.
