12.90 for a link? 140 for a tool? Bllody hell, one needs a mortgage to run 11 speed... I'll stick to my 9 and use any standard tool to open/lock the rivets
or just buy an 11 speed KMC chain in the first place - not much more than a Chorus chain and comes with the missing link connection.
Any chain tool will shorten the chain and as Flasher said get a KMC quick link around £12 for two, been using the 10 and now the 11 for years.
KMC chains are generally excellent - may as well go for one and get the £12 missing link included in the price.

Or just stop taking the chain off.
If you do buy the Chorus 11 speed chain you could use the 11 speed link by YBN avaiable from Merlin @ £1.99 +PP each (code:YBNQR11).
Seems to work well- I have been using one for several months now.
Why on earth don't Campagnolo (or Shimano for that matter) adopt a similar solution? Is it because KMC have the copyright on missing link type connections? It's not as if they must make a lot of money selling £140 chain tools..
