It's a chain dude! A chain is like the easiest thing to fix on a motorcycle. You can buy the tool to secure the master link at Sears, Farm and Fleet, JC whitney and many other places.

It's like a 15 minute job at the most.

4&6 charges how much an hour?

Do you really want to get charged 100 bucks, plus another 100 bucks for a chain to get one put on?

I Know, I know.... But I have almost NO TOOLS here, I dont have a rear stand, I dont even have a garage I can work in..... plus the only chains i have ever done were the clip style on dirt bikes. Plus there has to be a reason that thing came off in the first place!!!

I could help you, what do you need. Do you have enough tools in your tool kit to remove the fairings and and anything else blocking or covering the front sprocket? Do you have the chain and link? Are you gonna do the clip style master link because I don't have the tool? Do you have rear swing arm spools?

you wont need to get it on a stand to do the job. the fairing comes off in 10 seconds, dzus fasteners. the front sprocket cover is held on with 4mm allen head screws.

You shouldn't need to remove anything away from the front sprocket, you should be able to feed the chain through.

VCOOK???

If he keeps everything on around the front sprocket can you feed a chain through on a 748?

I could help but not until late, like after 10:00 when my wife gets home(I'm on dad detail). You need a 94 link 520 chain with a clip style master. PM me if you think you will need help that late.

I have both sets of allen keys and a partially broken chain tool, but you might be able to still use it. I also have a rear stand 'nonspool type'.

How many CLSBers does it take to put on a chain? Let's set a record!

I have a trailer that isn't fucntional. Allen keys that may or may not be the right size, and the mechanical knowledge of a 4 year old that eats paste for dinner.

BUT, I live really close by. Someone get me the address. Steve owes me some beer!

I manage to do the chain myself, until I broke the chain tool , I was still able to rivit the master link in afterwards. My vote would be 5 ppl.

your stand won't work, it's a 748, single sided swingarm.
