Rated 4 out of 5 by Good chain Faultless chain so far, the only thing that bothered me was that it didn't come with a connector pin to put the chain together, I had to buy this seperately, recommended you but a shimano chain pin 18 July 2014

I just installed this on my bike, but after i placed the guide pin, that link is stiff. how do it get it to loosen up? Also, If i need to take the chain off, can i simply remove a pin with a chain tool and then replace it with the same pin? or that pin now ruined and i'll need a new guide pin?

Answer: 
So for question #1, look at the insertion of the guide pin. If it is pushed too far or not far enough the edges of the pin will make the link stiff. Compare it to the other pins and match as required.
Question #2 These pins are single use, when you installed it it came with a rounded guide piece that you had to break off. Without that guide you will never get the pin through all those holes again. Buy a pack of replacement pins for your toolbox.
Every time you remove/replace a chain you weaken it. This is especially true with narrow chains of 10-11 speeds. You can buy removable links that allow you to remove and reattach a chain without the need of a pin.

Answer: 
You may be able to loosen the link up by riding it, however my suggestion is to remove the pin (shimano pins are one time use, the answer to your second question) and I would replace with a master link instead. I have this same chain and use the SRAM powerlink master link with no issue. I really recommend them, any other 10 speed master link should work well to just comes down to preference and availability

Answer: 
By bending the chain 'laterally' at the stiff link is should reduce the stiffness. After a few minutes on the bike; the stiffness should be gone completely.

Generally link pins are reusable but can become damaged when removing making this not possible.

It may be work considering chain connectors which makes breaking and reconnecting the chain easy.

Answers

Answer: 
The 6701 chain has asymetrical inner and outer plates; the inner plate is shaped to optimize shifting in the rear while the outer plate is shaped to optimize shifting in the front.

The 6600 chain does not have the different inner and outer plates.

The 6701 chain is only recommended for doubles. If using a triple, Shimano state that a 6600 chain must be used.

Answer: 
The 5701, 6701 and 7901 chains utilise a stiffer link than previous chains, so they do not have enough lateral movement to work well on a triple ring setup. Shimano suggest the 5600, 6600 and 7801 chains as their triple compatible options (linked below for your reference)
