Hey guys I recently had my oem chain replaced with a new RK Racing 520-112 X-ring chain at a local bike shop.

Upon inspection of the chain I see of the master link which came with 4 rings included, only 3 rings are installed.. lo and behold the idiot f***ing guy that worked on my bike must've been distracted and just forgot to put the 4th ring on..

Now since it's a rivet style, I'm guessing my only option is to buy and replace the RK master link and work with the shop on reimbursing me for it.

Question: how screwed am I with 3/4 rings installed? How will this affect the chains life? Can I just say fk it and leave it alone or follow up with the idiots at the shop?

You pay people for their service, but still get half assed work..

BARTZ Motorcycle & Repair shop in Mississauga for anyone wondering.

Yeah, without that 4th one, lube is just going to leak out. And you'd be running metal on metal. Not something sealed chains excel at...
