When it comes to riding it comes to bike maintenance, it is a clear
that riding a bike is the fun bit – and maintenance and cleaning up
is the lesser fun bit.
With that being said, we are here to help guide you through all the annoyances and help you understand the importance of them so that you feel like it is more “mandatory” that what it may be, as a hassle.
This week, we will be focusing on: Chain maintenance.
It may sound silly, but chain maintenance is a lot more important than what people realize when it comes to any motorcycle that may be driven by a chain. Motorex and Lyndon Poskitt have teamed up and introduced a series where they will be sharing tips and tricks on how to maintain your bike as well as get the most out of it, using all their great products. We will be sharing these videos, as well as be giving you a text-based run down of what the videos cover so that we can also help bring awareness to all the subjects they cover to help grow not only our knowledge but also yours, the reader – “for the riders, by the riders”.
With that being said, let us begin: It is always important to get out any access dirt that is left after a ride to make sure the chain is cleaned and will be ready for your next ride. Next step would be to make sure your chain is lubricated. The highest priority would be to make sure the rollers on the chain are well lubricated. A big mistake a lot of people make is often spraying on the wall of the chains, this is in correct as it often just attracts dust, mud and just unnecessary bits.
