The clips are normally used on smaller capacity bikes with lightweight chains, the advantage being ease of fitting and breaking the chain without special tools. I personally would prefer to use a rivet link, the link plate is a press fit and the pins are riveted forming a permanent joint, this would give me more peace of mind. I am surprised if a heavy duty chain for an FTR is supplied with a clip link, not seen one on any bike bigger than about a 250cc?
