Alan,
I would not tackle this job unless you are absolutely sure about what's needed and have "good" quality tools to do it e.g. Chain breaker/ riveter..
If you ordered the kit from the dealer , it may be prudent to get them to change the chain..

I agree - it requires a high level of confidence to be able to rivet the new chain back together and, if you get it wrong, the chain could break or you could end up with a couple of stiff links!
