Question about 2000 Suzuki GSX 750 F (Katana)
I have no idea how to change a chain.. I believe I will need a chain cutter, but what to I need to remove in order for me to replace the chain, do I need to grease anthing other then the spray lube for the chain?
I was thinking of finding the 'connect link' and unhook from the old chain and hook to the new one and slowly feed it through. any suggestions? I dont have a workshop manual so i dont know what to remove where the front sprocket is located [if I need to that is] apprciate all the advise I can get cheers.Godwin
ALL chains have a master link. If the wheel hasn't been moved since original installation, just remove the old chain and install the new one. It will be tighter but it should fit without any major issues.

You said it all, most bikes have a master link, if not you need a chain breaker, which you can also use if the new chain you purchase is to long. lift bike on center stand, loosen axle nut, then loosen chain adjustment screw nuts on both sides and turn them so the wheel/axle moves all the way forward. connect the old chain to the new chain and pull it through (while gearbox is in neutral). adjust the chain adjust screws on the axle the same amount indicated by the markers on swing arm until chain has a deflection of half inch up and down in the middle at the tightest spot, try turning the wheel a few cycles to find it. then lock axle nut then tensioner lock nuts.
