    tks!

    btw, wat do u do with the leftover diesel tt u might hav? do u juz pour it into the drain???

    then if i were to change engine oil myself, wat do i do with the oil too? how to dispose it?

    many tks again brudder!
    Left over diesel = Keep and reuse.

    Old Engine oil =
    DISPOSE PROPERLY. Bike shops can dispose for you usually for a price. NEVER dispose down the drain (your kids will get cancer!).
    NEVER leave it in the car park (cos cleaner will anyhow dump, then your kids will get cancer).
    IF you have car or company vehicle, dump into engine Our engine oil will usually have a bit of life in it when we want to change it anyway (then the car mech will get rid of it for you when u change oil )

    I like the following chain lubes:

    1. Liqui Moly Racking Chain Lube ($11 for a 400ml can)
    2. Motorex Chain Lube ($14 for a big can)

    So far, these two are the best I have tried and gives good performance for Phantom 200.

    if this is the case, your chain is spoiled already.

    This is found on my bike manual.

    ___________________________________________

    The drive chain in this omtorcycle is equipped with small O-rings between the link plates. These O-rings retain grease inside the chain to improve its service life. The O-rings in this chain can be damaged by steam cleaning, high pressure washers, and certain solvents. Clean the side surfaces of the chain with a dry cloth. DO NOT brush the rubber O-rings. Brushing will damage them. Wipe dry and lubricate only with SAE 80 or 90 gear oil. Commercial chain lubricants may contain solvents which could damage rubber O-rings.

    Peered into my chain today for the first time. If it's rubber O-rings, it should look black inside.

    no. ur chain already expand. it may snap one day n cause u more trouble.
    go buy new chain. spend abit more on quality ones.
    also, new chain need to go with new f/r sprockets.

    insist on original ones.. if not, get VAZ rear sprockets.

    dun bother with those Renthal, AFAM race sprockets.
    its not meant for daily riding. its light coz made of aluminium but the wear&tear rate...

    u need proper maintanance on chain.
    clean with diesel n soft paint brush wen its very dirty..
    but always remember to lube it at least every 2weeks.

    can different types of lubrication be used on the chain over a period of time??

    got a small can from LAB, but spray already makes my chain looks whitish..
    the inside i cannot spray, just move bike a little and spray slowly...

    can use castrol grease to lubricate it?? i think tt's what the workshop applies for me when they first did tt for me when my bike gives noises when it runs above 70km/h...

    some kind of 'kok kok' sound...

    Pls don't use grease to lubricate. It makes your chain look lubricated, but actually does not penetrate into the rollers and pins. If you're using o ring chain, you might still get away with it as the critical pins are sealed and self lubricating, as long as the grease does not eat the rubber. The rollers will still be 'dry' though.

    If you're using roller chain, I've found that gear oil applied sparingly is still the most effective in terms of lubricity, much better than commercial lubes/wax which are more focused on anti-fling properties to keep your rim clean. Waxes accumulate into crud over time and result in lube starvation at the critical areas inside the chain.

    For o-ring chains, one should never use degreasers like WD-40, RP-7, kerosene or diesel as they will strip the lubricant from the o-rings and the chain will be permanently damaged.

    Wipe dry, then use gear oil or use Castrol chain wax ($10) will do.

    This I agree. I was surprised when some guys recommended kerosene and diesel to clean the chain. But then again, to each his/her own.

    I asked my uncles who rides, they said not to clean the chain with those stuff, rather, clean with the chain lube instead.

    it is.. but preventive maintenance is required to fulfill it's potential lube regularly, clean thoroughly once a week, think there's lots of reading material in this thread already...

    get a scott-oiler!

    why can't we use petroluem or its distillates on o-ring, x-ring chains ?

    simple, the rings. the rings are made of a sillicon based elastomer. they actually seal a layer of thick greasey lubricant between the pins and bushings.

    why do we need to clean the chain ? can't we just spray more lub ?

    most chain lubs are nowadays "fling-free", i.e. they stick to your chain like flies to $hit. therefore road dust also stick like $hit to your chains. causing more friction than you have before you sprayed the lub on.

    wat's the deal with not brushing my chain and high pressure water ?

    brush, i suppose refer to hard plastic brushes ( toothbrush and above ) and metal brushes with might destroy the rings, enuff said.
    high pressure water jets penetrate the rings and then you have water + grease sealed in. so much for being kiasu

    why do i use diesel ?

    when u use a petroluem product on the rings, they contract and shrink, and then the petroluem actually washes away the lubricant that was originally sealed in. so u end up wif a half fu@ked o or x ring chain that is worse than a heavy duty one. the same thing, however, won't happen wif diesel and kerosene. And since kerosene is combustible and diesel is not, especially in our weather, therefore, diesel.

    How about engine oil ?

    best! chain gets lubed and dirt flings off. but it flings off and dirties your bike like hell. unless you can drip it little by little ( remember scottoiler and loobman ?? )

    wat is the best lub ?

    a oil bath. i've seen some ah pek bikes that have the chain sealed in and the chain runs thru a oil bath. the same thing happens to your timing chain inside the engine... see how long it lasts ?

    other than that ?

    scottoiler, loobman, frequent oiling wif engine oil, cleaning before you use chain lub

    my 2 cents... erm make that 20 cents worth

    why is X better thn O ?

    http://www.rk-excel.co.jp/english/tech1.htm

    the X has 2 sealing points as compared to the O's single point.

    also, pressure exerted on the outside face of the chain will actually help to tighten the seal. instead of allowing it to penetrate, as in the case of the oring.

    seal better = better lubed internally= longer life = more durable

    even if they did, it'll cost a bomb by the time it's exported here.

    add some of my experience here.
    regularly, i would jack up the rear of my bike.
    buy diesel and use thick cotton cloth.

    use it to clean every link of the chain.
    no more grease and dirt on the chain.
    up and down, in bewteen each link.
    clean until my original gold colour shows.

    then spray chain lube on it.
    im using maxima chain lube and i stand by it.
    i used before motorex. aint that good. leave a colour on ur chain.
    tried PJ1 blue and black. too watery.
    tried castrol chain wax. leaves rims dirty.
    tried putoline. stupid LAB. reccomend me lousy stuffs and a mess to clear up
    tried Huntings chain lube. not too sure abt it...

    never use degreasers as they strip the chain of whatever lubricants they have.



    if u really got the time, u can strip the chain and soak it in kerosene. hang dry. lube it plenty.
    but .. i doubt anyone will do it

    clean with kerosene is ok but not soaking. we don't want to remove the internal lubricants sealed within the o-rings.

    hi there, if you got a NON o-ring chain, you shouldn't worry about anything. it'll work or sure.. we care when we got an o-ring chain cos o-rings are rubber (high-grade, low-grade, viton low friction yada yada). we don't want anything in the lube that destroys that rubber. plain metal chain, no worries... besides, PJ1 is pretty good, from some offline reviews...

    hey, thx man
    I've just applied pj1 blue to the chain after cleaning it many time with wd40 and soap. it seems pretty okay, just that my chain buffer is loose and it keeps rubbing against the chain

    No 2t man, if u wan cheap, take the remainder of yr 4t and apply but be prepared for major fly-off onto yr rim. try and wipe off the excess too.
    also, pls clean yr chain regularly as it will get dirty with all the sand and dirt faster.

    sewing machine oil may be fine but go easy man

    You may use that, but they won't STAY on your chain. Please lah... bottle of chain lube/spray/wax/oil costs only about $10. Dun skimp..... if the chain breaks whilst you are on the road..... then...... goodluck to you man.

    Technically, o'ring x'ring chains require 80+W oil, so if you use "gear" oil you are still ok..... anything less.....

    waxing is done with the same purpose of lubricating the chain to reduce wear and tear. it's the same my friend. unless you wax the chain to remove hairs or something...

    I must say not a lot of folks here like Castrol chain wax... i noe, it does flings off and stick to ur rims and underseat. What i did is juz to spray WD40 on a cloth and wipe off from my rims when I spring clean my bike. But other than dat, it serves itz purpose well. Any comments?
