Some tools do both riveting and removal, does yours? If you are unsure or not confident I would fit the usual joining link (should be supplied with the new chain) and take it to a bike shop and get them to rivet it. This would be far cheaper than buying the right tool, and you dont want the chain to come apart when riding.

What's the problem? Your battery sounds like it is in tiptop condition. Any load....lights, starter etc, will make the voltage drop as some of the power is being used.

if the engine turns over with no spark and you put a new plug in thenlook deeper, ignition coil/armiture/magneto. this coil will have to create a charge to produce a spark if it does not work correctly then you will have no spark. also another cause of this would be the ignition switch. make sure the key is activating the ignition coil.

The starter motor uses a lot of current. There could be a poor connection at the battery, or the battery could be too weak. Most auto parts stores have battery testers and they will check it for free.

First get the battery load tested at any Interstate Outlet. It takes 3 minutes and is free.

If the battery is good, you need a good auto-electrician. Parasitic draw is difficult to diagnose, but you have something draining to earth.

Or your battery is just worn out and not holding the charge. Average life on a motorcycle / scooter is 4 to 5 years due to bad maintenance and bad winter storage plus vibration.
