  • Chain Maintenance

    Right I’ve just got myself a chain driven bike for about the first time in 20 years. How often do I lubricate it and with what? Presumably we’ve moved on from the occasional squirt with WD40

    Nope.....WD40 lube of champions!

    The only downside is - reapplication every 400kms or so.

      Hey 👋 chuck I’m using tac2 at them moment (I’m sure there are better products) I clean and lube my chain once a fortnight(or every second tank) . I clean it with kero and brush then wipe with a rag if clean enough I give it a light lube up so it’s not dry go for ride and warm up the chain the lube up. Don’t clean your chain with stuff like brake parts cleaner, degreaser,wax and grease remover or anything else that is harmful to the orings in the chain.

              Whatever Cully's put on my chain when they serviced it last is the best product I've seen. It's white and kinda waxy, doesn't fling, doesn't pick up crap, and has staying power.

              [MENTION=52873]Benzo[/MENTION] You know what it is?

                  It's 'Bel-Ray Super Clean Chain Lube' and works really well on road bikes as well as dirt bikes.

                    When I bother/remember, it's Motul Chain Clean and a grunge brush followed by Motul Chain Lube (Road).

                      im pretty sure 95% of memebers here have shares in chain & or lube companys, never have a seen a bunch of people so concerned about a consumable item.


                      run the bastard till its noisey then spray with WD40 as needed.. replace when stretched beyond adjusters.... ive never cleaned a chain in my life

                        Scottoiler messy but effective, very effective.
                        The only thing wrong with a perfect ride to work is that you end up at work.

                          Occasinal wipe down with WD40 and keep looser rather than too tight.

                            Love their byline;



                            This is really good and doesn't turn your rear wheel black and speckly;



                            I am currently still using up a pack of twelve cans of Shell chain lube a mate gave me.

                              Inox is very good.
