The best thing I've found to clean the chain with is diesel fuel and a bristle brush. I put the diesel in a spray bottle and the bike on a stand and roll the chain around spraying it with diesel. Then take the bristle brush to the chain until your satisfied and spray off with water. Before spraying the wax on the chain, the chain needs to be warm. Like a ride around the block or so just to get some heat in the chain. I like to have a rag handy to wipe the chain wax off the wheel, swingarm, tire, etc. after coating the chain, then just let it sit for 10-15 minutes so the chain wax can dry. IMO it's best to do this after a ride. :thumbsup:zenithRR said:Need some tool guide and tip how to clean and wax the chain, what you do? :beer:
I've always had flinging problems with the PJ-1 product. The gold label Chain Wax is my current favorite, it never flies off.Fish Slapper said:I use a product called Motul Chain Clean. Combined with a rag and a brush, it doesn't leave any residue on the chain. That leaves a super clean surface for the lube (PJ-1) to stick to with zero fling.
me too. until changing to HP lube i used PJ1 blue label for many years and while the amount of fling is minimal under a days ride it do fling...or is that fly? :eyecrazy:Andy said:I've always had flinging problems with the PJ-1 product.

Sounds like a poser thing to me. j/k :lol: :wink:swjohnsey said:Can't believe I'm in the mainstream on anything. I clean my chain when cold with diesel fuel using my wife's tooth brush then wipe it down with paper towels once per 1,000 miles. I lube the chain with PJ1 Black every 333 miles when the chain is warm wiping off the excess with paper towels. PJ1 Black makes a mess of yer rear wheel and swing arm but it gives yer bike that hardcore world traveler look.
