arent masterlinks really sketchy to have on a fixie?
No, they're fine.
To the OP: I have personally had bad experiences adding links back onto a chain. If yours goes well, great. Chains don't cost a lot though, and a new one greatly reduces your chances of catastrophic chain failure.
By the way, nothing wrong with one or two master links on a fixed gear chain. I use two gearings, 46x17 for street, 53x17 for track (although I might get a 16 when I get my track wheels). Because I'm too cheap to have two chains (SRAM PC-68 by the way is a kickass chain, and not too pricey, $30-35), I add a little segment of chain and another master link to accomodate the bigger gearing. Works fine. Also, on some narrow chains it's not such a good idea to constantly punch pins in and out. Hell, some require you get a new pin. Your chain, however is a breeze to break and put back together, so don't worry about it. If you get stiffness, bend the chain side-to-side (not along the axis it naturally bends) around the link you replace to loosen up the plates. Sorry this is such a nonsensical chunk of text.

just find a buddy (preferrably pretty buff guy) and tell him to grab one end of the chain.. and you grab the other, and brace yourself with your free hand against the door frame... and pull hard. this should stretch da chain enough to fit now
