According to the service manual it is an RK525SMOZ7 with 110 links. I think the 525 part is the key.
Please rate this answer. Thanks ptk36!

Don't ever break & relink a timing chain on a vehicle like yours.
You don't have to remove the crank just to replace the timing chain. says
like jeshern85 says, just remove whatever parts are blocking access. I usually wrap the chain around the crank sprocket then pull the chain up through the cylinder with a coat hanger.

SOURCE: clutch push rod broke !!!
Chances are the prior owner installed some aftermarket springs that are too strong. This puts extra pressure on the push rod. Just pull the left and right cover of then remove the clutch assembly. put the new rod in from the left side then re-mount the left cover. Put the clutch back on then the right cover. The parts book shows a two piece push rod assembly. I wonder if a hardware store rod was installed because the factory rods are near impossible to find. The substitute rod probably couldn't handle the pressure and heat.
If not found elsewhere, google motorcycle salvage suzuki and see if you can find a used rod set.

Testimonial: "thanks for ur help , if anymore grief i email you thanks again"
You can find the torque specs in a service manual.
Go to this site and you can download a free PDF service manual.
www.carlsalter.com/motorcycle-manuals.asp Most all of the manuals are in English but some are not. There is no way to be sure without doing the download. You can always delete it if in a foreign language.
Shown below are a couple of manuals on the site. Yes, I know the years are not 1993 like your bike, but the torque values don't change from year to year. Even the service proceedures don't change often.
