Master link for DID 520 VD chain?
I have a 2008 Honda Tornado XR250 (Brazilian) which needs a change of chain and sprockets. I was able to buy the original stock sprockets and the chain recommended in the manual which is a DID 520 VD, but find that the chain length should be 104 links and the one I bought is longer, so I need to shorten it (This is an O-ring chain by the way). The problem is I can't find a master link for this chain (the Honda dealer for some reason doesn't sell them- this is in Honduras) and I was wondering if a DID 520 VX2 X-ring master link will work on the chain I bought. Please advice as I am planning on doing this myself (I am mechanically oriented and love to work on my own stuff - I'll be buying a chain tool when I order the master links). I only ask this because this is the first time I need to change the chain, but I do all other maintenance on the bike myself (oil changes, brake pads, etc). Thank you.

Unfortunately, this is a spec chain that we do not have available here in the US. I am unfamiliar with it and do not have any specifications. I was only able to find it being sold in South America. It looks like you may need to order a couple different styles of DID master links and see if one can match up.
