So, the question is simple – should I use a master link on my shifter or not? I WANT TO USE A MASTER LINK, but one of the techs at a very respected Kart dealer told me they can break easily and I should pass on a master link.
I currently don’t use a master link, and the torque on my shifter makes me wonder if I might have failures – thoughts???
Thanks for the quick response – this is what I expected but my tech warned me so I figured I would ask. I had another similar thread where we discussed chains and based on feedback I don’t see why I wouldn’t use one. Thanks again. More feedback is welcome, especially if there are concerns 🙂
My sons are tuff on equipment so in one year after 2 dnfs because of masters failing, we now have no master links in our chains. I know of people who have no issues but to me isnt worth not finishing. good luck.
I have always used master links with ZERO failures in all my years of karting, and would not think about it twice
Super nice to have the ability to adjust chain leghth if needed when running different gear ratio.
Just make sure you install it properly with the opening side facing towards the back at the top part of the chain ( away from any possibilities of opening up while rubbing on any parts )
