you can find cheaper tools but this is one of the best I've seen, will last forever, I've been using mine for years. Just follow the instructions carefully, in using a rivet link it has to be done just so.

Also, I'd recommend breaking the old chain and putting it side-by-side with the new chain to get the length correct.

Amazon.com: D.I.D KM501E Sport Cutting and Riveting Tool KM501E: Automotive

fyi this tool will cut your chain as well as set rivet links (you can use a clip type master link, but most everyone recommends the rivet type. I've used both over the years with no probs but started using rivet links many years ago.

This looks like a pretty good vid on using the tool

NOTE: for the zvm chain you WILL need to order this 500R replacement pin for the tool to work correctly on riveting this type chain.

Amazon.com: D.I.D. Chain DID KM500R-PIN: Automotive

info about the pin change here:

no worries, absolutely you can do it, if you have questions just post up here and someone can answer.

The nice thing about a single sided swingarm is that you don't generally have chain alignment issues.

I only voiced my concerns earlier as the questions seemed very basic and it worries me that a chain cut and connected/installed by someone with no experience or admitted mechanical aptitude is a potentially dangerous proposition..... Be careful... Please!!

i will be doing this soon as well. does anyone have any front/rear sprocket advice for a quick swap out? going to go with a 40 rear sprocket. do i need to get a 105 link chain? do i have to get a whole new carrier for the rear sprocket etc? or can i simply buy a drop in 15 front (OEM on standard model right?) and a +1 (40T) in the rear and a 105 link chain...

You can't have an odd number of links. You must move up to 106 links, in which case you should just get the 41T as per Ducati recommendation. You can get a 1 piece sprocket or a 2 piece quickchange, that is totally up to you.
