- KMC Missing Links – similar to SRAM?
The best six quid you’ll ever spendPosted 4 years agospawnofyorkshireSubscriber
I had to do a quick trail repair with a KMC 9spd missing link on my sram 10spd chain. Can i just keep it on or will i die?
(The original sram missing link failed)
I wasn’t planning on changing my chain or cassette in the near future so want to avoid that if possiblePosted 4 years agogiantx4Member
My kmc x9l snapped on me friday night at 10pm while halfwaydown the darkest windiest mudiest wettest trail ive ridden this year!.. It broke right next to the power-link & was left with the correct ends to just re-join with the magic link so a quik fix luckily but couldve been a nightmare.?? Dunno why she broke but #justsayin 😉Posted 4 years ago
The SRAM 10 speed ones aren’t intended to be reusable.
I know that, I’m talking about the KMC ones, as you can see from my earlier post agreeing with the OP. 🙂
I just had another go at one of mine out of interest: definitely KMC, definitely does not want to come apart. Maybe I got mine from a duff batch or something.

You have to push the links inwards together (do a pinching motion with thumb and index finger) whilst sliding them apart to get them off easily.
For years I wondered why some missing links would come apart easily until I learned that this was the way to do it. Now they all come apart easily.Posted 4 years ago
