Just ordered an RK Racing Chain Break/Press/Rivet tool, 114 link D.I.D 520VX3 chain, extra VJ Rivet link (just in case), SuperSprox 48t rear sprocket, and a Superlite chromoly 15t front sprocket. I am mechanically inclined but have never broken or installed a chain before. Any tips?

Pretty straight forward actually.
1) take your time.
2) follow the instructions coming with the RK riveting tool (tricky at first with the different set-ups). And grease the thread on the tool.
3) as you're going to replace the rear sprocket, first take off the rear wheel, to give you ample space to figure out the riveting tool to break the old chain.
4) after replacing the sprockets and putting back the wheel, have the ends of the chain come together in the middle under the swing arm so locking the rivets is easier.
Good luck.
