Chain contd

Thanks for the input, i havent had a bike past 16000 miles before(i would get a new one due to being bored of the bike). I will more than likely replace all around the 20k mark. i clean and lube frequently, and the brush is a must so is hot water.

Kerosene is much more effective than hot water. Mineral spirits work just as well too.

Charlie, We don't want tuna with good taste. We want tuna that tastes good, smells good and puts out.

The grunge-brush is way too stiff in my opinion. I do not like thrashing the O-rings like that.
What I do is clean with an old toothbrush and diesel fuel, wipe dry. then lube.

Thank you for the good tip, it was kind of a pain in the ass to boil water then dry, then lube...im kinda OCD. Now i can do it better and faster.

is it overkill to do that every oil change? or do you do it for your own peace of mind?

The nylon bristles of the Grunge Brush are fine for o-rings.

Using a brass bristle brush, however, is not recommended.

My chain has last now 46 000km. I lube it in ewery 500-1000km's.
I did get old Mobil GX80-90W gear oil from my father. I think that it is best chain lube which I have used.
Motul Road chain lube was really s**t. It did glu ewery dust peace and little stones to the chain. It was really hard to clean the chain.

When you use normal gear oil, you dont have to clean the chan. Look chain. If it does look dry. Lube it precisely.

Free of charge oil lube seems to be the best one.

I have put gear oil on my chain and the sound from it its gone. It sounded like a bad wheel bearing.
