So I need to replace the chain on my fz. I was looking at chain rivet tools, and they all look the same. The plastic cases are identical and the tool looks completely identical. The only difference is price.... which range from $20 to nearly $100. Has anyone had experience with these? Are the more expensive tools better quality and or better quality steel? There's no point in buying a name brand motion pro rivet tool if its the same as the amazon one?!

I bought a $80 originally and it let me down after about 3 uses... It failed on me while in a pinch so I ran to cycle gear and got their stockton brand for $20... Maybe it was $40. I can't recall, but it looks the same as the red case in your first photo. It has held up for 5 chains thus far. Maybe my first one was a lemon, but I'll probably be sticking with the $20 route until it bites me in the ass.

Awhile back I modified a Harbor Freight chain breaker into a riveter.
It doesn't work nearly as well as a Motion Pro but at my age I gave some thought as to how many more chains was I going to install so it's good enough for me.

Get the PBR its the best in my opinion after using both the one you show and this one ! Motion Pro - PBR Chain Tool by far the best out of the two ! and it Will push out the rivet with out grinding...with the one you show ...all i can say is buy extra pins and good luck removing rivets with-out grinding first !
