Love your chain and it will serve you right! It does serve you more than you think.The whole power and load of the engine is transmitted by the chain! Chains can last 3-4 times longer by maintenance!
Chains need to be Cleaned and Lubricated!
Clean Before Lubricating!
Lubricate chain AFTER riding NOT Before!
Never use Petroleum-based cleaners!
Never use wire brushes!
Clean using soft nylon brush or sponge.
Avoid high pressure jets or pressure washers.
When lubricating spray the chain with thin and even coating of chain lube. Rotate the wheel until you’ve covered three full rotations of the chain.
