Cleaning And Lubricating Motorcycle Chains

Lubricant for the chain is usually a difficult question, about the same series, the choice of oil or tires. Everyone has a favorite, and a lot of myths Tuev, preferences, habits, or just hide under a veil of truth. Further details can be found at Vadim Belyaev, an internet resource. Until there is no scientific evidence that a lubricant for longer stays, works better, or reduce friction better than others, we rely on your feelings rather than facts. Owners of motorcycles with hob has its own problems. The fact that PTO does not have to serve have come only from BMW R1200GS. Most universal joints require periodic maintenance, of course, is not such a frequent, as for the chain, but to examining the PTO 6:00, instead of sometimes spend 20 minutes on washing and lubrication of the chain, not very fit in with my notion of happiness (though, it's an amateur;)).

Belt drive, it seems the release – the belt is simple, easy, quiet and clean. But, nevertheless, the manufacturers of motorcycles, for some reason, not willing to put it on the bike. So, what treatments chain will be relevant for a long time. Already very much has been written on this subject and I will not be repeated, except that I recall that the chain should be lubricated and cleaned about every 320 kilometers. Since the replacement of the chain not an easy job, and not the cheapest, then you should try to keep it clean and lubricated to prolong her life as much as possible. Yes, do not forget that the correct tension chain also plays an important role in the duration of its life.
