    Does this combo work or do I need a special link (or should I just use
    replacement pins)? My goal is to be able to remove the chain for cleaning.
    Thanks for reading!

    It works. I've used the SRAM link on Campagnolo 9 speed chains for a
    few years. And I've used them on Shimano 9 speed chains for other
    people's bikes for a few years. And I know people who use the SRAM
    link on very high mileage tandems with Shimano 9 speed chains for a few
    years. I do put on a new link when I replace the chain. Don't know if
    I need to or not but I do.

    Yes, you use the gold type. Not recommended by Shimano or SRAM, but
    they have pins and chains to sell you ;-)
