I installed the chain today, I think the lock is mounted correct and looks good?
I have attached some photos below.

My first time, so just wanted to let you see what you think, not good if it falls off...

You have to peen it over being careful it's not too tight. Best with the tool or done on the bench.

It must be these toll I shall use?
I read a place I shall flair the diameter with 0,5mm ? so I need to measure the diamater first and then try to hit +0,5mm, is that correct ?

Your chain is made by DID so the head needs to be peened over in the way DID specifies.

Found this page about the DID tool... www.didchain.com/chainTools.html

According to this info the head needs to be flared to between .217"-.228"

Below shows what the pin should look like after flaring/peening (left pin flared, right pin still needs to be done.)

I'd give it a go; try your tool and measure the flare using calipers. I'd target the .228" flare diameter. Just be careful that you don't flare too much and bind up the chain.

Today have I flared, please see attached photo, both is the same. The flaring was stopping by it self, I was not able to go further.
Maybe the tool is made for making a spesific flare, but I think it should be good now ?

I have now more question also, when it comes to greasing the chain. The chain was greased from factory, what shall I do?
Can I just apply my silicon based grease I normal use? or shall I drive with the stuff who is on now and don`t do anything before the chain need some lube ?

.225" should be fine. Did you verify that the chain still flexes at the rivet link?

I think you can just run the chain with that white lube on it. After a few hundred miles it will make a bit of a mess though. Once the sprockets start to look dry then lube. The chain is lubed mostly from the inside but the lube outside is for the rollers and sprockets.

The inside o-ring lubrication is a life time lubrication!!!
You have to do a light clean to the the outside rollers every 1000 km that catch the street dirt on to the chain with a finger nail brush and diesel/petroleum. Re-lube the chain after cleaning regular and you will go up to +50000 km with your chain/sprocket set!!!
Cleaning and re-lube is the key for a high longevity of the parts!!!
