For the record, if you don't have that special tool from triumph, a few other items will work, in a pinch...
Now, these are certainly not "dealer recommended" procedures, so: "Perform at your own risk!!!"
You can use a center punch and a hammer to tighten it up a little, if you cannot get the wrench in time. Just make sure it is placed evenly and square on the tooth...
...and tap lightly. It doesn't take a lot of force...
I only tell you this because a properly maintained chain is safer then riding with a loose chain because the tool didn't arrive in time. Like any job, it should be performed with the proper tools but if you don't have them, it's okay to "improvise" a little...
