    Quick Tip: Warm the chain, lube every 500 miles, don't get any on the tires, ride bike right after to work it in, and remove excess after your first ride.


    Your chain doesn't need much cleaning if you just ride on normal streets. WD-40 and a rag is about all you need and even then not very often.


    If you use gear oil, oil the warm chain after your last ride of the day using a brush (not an oil can). Put something under the chain to catch the drips and wipe off excess with a rag. Let sit overnight. Any fly-off will be minimal.


    If you use WD-40, spray on warm chain any time. Give it a couple of minutes to drip off or wipe off excess with rag. Ride anytime. Fly-off is moderate. If you don't have a centerstand, use WD-40 to clean the chain and sprocket using the rolling method (apply to chain, roll the bike back, apply to chain, roll the bike back, etc. until complete chain is done). After 50 miles or so, spray WD-40 on a clean cloth and wipe down any areas of your bike that may have chain lube on it. Wax these areas lightly (like your chain guard, fender, etc., and you're good for about 600 miles.


    If you use spray-on lubes, be sure to spray onto a warm chain. Do not over saturate. Spray it on the inside of the chain. That way on your next ride it will be slung outwards, through the chain. Lube the chain every several hundred miles or when it looks dry. If you are going to use an aerosol chain lube, consider using PJ1 in the blue label.


    For O-ring chains, bring the bike home hot and throw it up on the centerstand in neutral. Then spray PJ1 Blue Label chain lube directly at the center of the rollers at the rear of the rear sprocket. Move the rear wheel slowly and continue to apply until the entire chain has been coated. Then park the bike for the night and let it dry. In the morning the rollers are all nicely lubricated and the bike is ready to ride off. Be sure to wipe off any excess before you ride and then after you come back after the first ride. The lubing of an O-ring chain is mostly for the sprocket's life as the lube for the chain pins is sealed inside the chain by the O-rings.


    Clean-up: Oil and WD-40 are the easiest to clean up/off, but also can create the biggest fly-off mess. PJ lubes or Chain Wax leaves the least amount of fly-off, but can build up on the chain itself. It's a nasty cycle of lube & cleaning, lube & cleaning.


    Chain lubing is another of many reasons why you shouldn't buy a bike without a centerstand.

    just a word to add, WD40 is not quite suitable to lube a chain. As it's a sort of degreaser, which means once u used WD40, you have to be constantly lubing it every few days. Side effects can be seen by leaving bike alone for few weeks. Rust will settle.

    Any petrol, grease remover, alcohol strongly not recommended. Once grease within O ring is gone, the chain is goin soon too.

    The steps below are only suggestions, as manufacturers and owners alike, have different opinions on proper drive chain maintenance. If, in doubt of any advice given here, consult your owners manual that came with your motorcycle.

    Step 1.

    Start by riding your motorcycle for about 15 minutes to heat up the chain. Put the bike up on it's centre or rear stand. If you do not have a stand, then I suggest purchasing one. Lubing a chain while on the side stand is both time consuming and difficult.

    Step 2.

    Clean the chain with Kerosene using a soft brush, I also clean the sprockets and cush drive at the same time.



    Step 3.

    Follow that up with a soapy wash to remove the residue left by the kerosene and wipe the chain dry with a clean cloth.


    Step 4.

    Apply the chain lubricant, I use WD-40 to lube the chain, you can use whatever chain lube you wish. "I prefer this product." Best apply the lubricant to the inside of lower run.




    Note: Some O-ring chains may be damaged by some lubricants and solvents, your local dealer or mechanic can be consulted if you do not know whether the product you are using is safe for your type of chain.
    Step 5.


    After the chain is well lubed, wipe off the excess and clean up the overspray that may have gotten on the wheels and tires. Allow the lube to dry before riding.

    Do Not clean or oil your chain with the engine running. Serious injury can occur.


    There you have it, a clean, well-lubricated chain! Remember that proper drive chain maintenance will allow your motorcycle to operate smoothly and can prevent serious injury and expense later.

    yesyesyes, o-rings retain the lubrications and by using degreasers, it will take away that function and its quite IMPOSSIBLE to lube it to its original state.

    i think it has a chemical called molybdynum disulfide which sticks very well to the chain.

    Whoaaa... clean the cush drive? That's inside the rear hub! Besides, the cush drive does not get dirty at all.

    Why not just use kerosene? Cheaper than degreaser right? And it depends on what kind of degreaser you are using.

    Ok.... seeing that so much concern about this issue.....

    Here is a way to test the cleaner of your choice.

    1. Go mechanic shop and look for some chain o'rings. There are bound to be at least some lying about.

    2. Bring home and soak in the solvent of your choice.

    3. After about 48 hours (longer if you want) if there is no deterioration to the o'ring. That means the solvent is ok to use.

    Things to look out for. O'ring expansion (it becomes puffed up). Some will become brittle (bend it around and it will crack). of course if the o'ring disappears altogether then maybe the solvent dissolved it! (but so far never come across this!

    Diesel is actually a cheaper alternative as compared to kerosene. Personally, i find it to be more effective than the latter and most important of all, it doesn't leave a stink on yr hands after u clean yr chain...

    hei, may be irrelavant, but for the lazy ppl like me, can try the scottoiler available from Motoworld. It is the automatic lubrication device that helps to lube your chain when your bike is moving. Been using it for three years and it haven't fail me yet. A worthwhile investment indeed. I'm in no way Motoworld's saleman, just recommending something good for all to share, and guess that most have heard about this stuff. Just my 2 cents' worth.

    Spray more better than spray less. A few drops is alright. A puddle would be really excessive..

    Install a scottoiler and save all the trouble

    Side stand near to body surely will stick abit of gooey stuffs, even though you lube your chain and left it overnight, the next day morning U rode it the lube will still splash abit. Cannot be 100% wont splash one. Surely will kena a bit. Use a cloth to wipe the gooey stuffs away from the side stand.

    I use it. Selley's RP7 is the cheaper alternative to WD40. And it works just as well, too.

    Like WD40, you'll need the whole can to clean your chain. So after a few chain cleaning sessions, it started to cost me a bit of money. I said sod it and went for the even cheaper diesel alternative. Can't argue with diesel when it comes to cost effectiveness.

    Now I use RP7 only for lubing and rustproofing all the hinges, bolts, keyholes and switchgears on my bike.

    has anyone tried this brand called RP7 before? can be bought from Shell for $3.85 and its a very big can. Any comments on it?
    I use it. Selley's RP7 is the cheaper alternative to WD40. And it works just as well, too.

    Like WD40, you'll need the whole can to clean your chain. So after a few chain cleaning sessions, it started to cost me a bit of money. I said sod it and went for the even cheaper diesel alternative. Can't argue with diesel when it comes to cost effectiveness.

    Now I use RP7 only for lubing and rustproofing all the hinges, bolts, keyholes and switchgears on my bike.
    but i used it to lube my chain leh.... seems to me quite lubed leh...

    Kerosene is the best cleaner (or diesel).

    no need commercial chain cleaner.
    go 2SPC, pay $1.50 n get 3L of diesel.
    [can share with 3bikers. n still got alot left]

    get a small tray or mug, medium sized paint brush.

    clean ur chain/sprocket with it. den take rag and wipe it dry.

    ride ard ur neighbourhood den apply chain lube.

    can save $$ n go buy chicken chop n coke instd

    Like some others suggested, I still prefer kerosene....cheap, good and does the job.

    I'll spend quite some time (1 hr or so) degreasing and talking cock (either to my friend or some other ppl cleaning their cars/bikes)

    then wipe them dry with some newspapers

    Spray my Motorex chain lube and let it set in (for ard 10 mins) and spray another thin coat...after that....

    park my bike and go home
