  • Is chain maintenance important?

    I'd say yes.

    yep picked up quite a few bikes with the chain wrapped around the swingarm and axle, majority were hyosung 250s so either a common problem with the bike or a common problem with lack of maintenance and noobs.
    Do you remember the good old days before the internet?

    when arguments were only entered into by the physically or intellectually able.

      Is say probably the latter.

        Doesn't look like the chain actually locked up the rear to me.. Anyone else see that?

        Def a good example of why chain maintenance is so important though, but knowing how to stop your bike I'm an emergency is even more important!

          A lot of comments from noobs saying that the wheel locked up because he applied the rear brake while the wheel was no longer driven. I reckon the chain just got caught up on one of the sprocket nuts.

            It's off at the 1.19 mark. Think he raises his hand because he has no drive then hits the rear Brake.

              without any drive to the rear the rear brake would have locked up more easily.

              i was just citing examples i've picked up out of ditches and/or taken for repairs or repaired myself.

                The Snake strikes again. I'll be out there again in a couple of months, on a Multistrada hopefully.

                  Yeah my comment wasn't in reply to you (actually hadn't seen any other comments before I hit send) was more thinking out loud and sanity checking what I saw.

                  That theory of rear brakes locking up easier when there's no drive makes sense..

                    I don't think so, we all apply rear brake with the clutch pulled in occasionally and don't end up disintegrating like that bloke did.

                    Oh and the comments I was talking about are the ones in YouTube. Not me esteemed PSB colleagues.

                      chain is visible the hole time. never gets pulled up away from the road as would happen if it caught on the sprocket.

                      rider error.

                      besides, remember getting bike chains caught on the rear sprocket? they never just fell out again. had to push, pull, poke and prod that sucker loose, but this bike got wheeled away.

                        Fuck with your chain tensioning and you can fuck your gearbox.

                        I'm guessing you know what to do. Chain adjustment is No # 1 and vary from how it performs.

                        That is, how your bike feels to you.
