Primary Chain

Can anyone tell me if the primary chain has a split link in it ?
Thanks

Yes on swing arm bikes, not sure on the others,  there is even a small recess in the inner case to allow it to be removed.

Thanks for that.
At least I won't have to remove the clutch if I want to change the engine sprocket.
