You don't want a DID mate, you want a nice Tsubaki.
I'd rather have a spring link than a badly rivetted one. What are the chances of a split link fitted correctly coming off? Pretty minimal, likely closely related to the condition and maintenance (adjustment) of the chain. Depends on your acceptance of level of risk.
Of course the correct answer is to get a shafty.
Personally i'd stump for a decent DID type tool, it will last a lifetime, and the finish i have found is perfect. Split links whilst i am sure they are fine, i have had sram powerlinks cone off whilst mountain biking, so i don't use.
I bought the riviter in your amazon link and it worked fine and dandy for me, I think people have issues with these tools when they are used to remove the old chain when there's really no need to use anything other than a grinder.
that chain that you've bought, are you sure it's a 520 that you need not a 525?
Doubt the ABS model would differ.
