I have the above chain removal/breaker tool and used it for my 10sp setups, however now having an 11sp Shimano setup and chain (Dura Ace) i would like to remove this (refit with a KMC Missing Link), is this chain tool compatible or do i need to buy another? There seems to be conflicting advice on Wiggle Q&A's for example.

If i need a new breaker any recommendations?
The Park Tools 11sp one is ~£27 but any others i should look at?

Cheers, Stu

    My CT-5C worked fine on my KMC 11 speed chain, didn't think it wouldn't so just used it. Presume I haven't done any damage, but rides ok!?

    Hmm cheers, I guess the pins are the same size 10sp vs 11sp, correct? As that's what the 'end' pushes out.

    Yes looked the same, didn't seem any tighter.
