I just replaced my chain/sprockets on my 2017 CB500F. First time doing it and I had a hard time doing the pressing the rivets on the master link. From the pictures below, am I safe to ride this chain? The rivets appear to be expanded enough to hold everything.

I wouldn't be able to live with that. Curious...Which tool did you use for this?

I dont like that, I think you have the riveting tool off center please try again.

Buy a new riveted master link and do it over with the proper tool and the help of someone experienced. It's not too late. What you did may not break but may wear out prematurely in that spot. Either way it's a dangerous situation.
