How To Clean and Lubricate a Chain

WWe've been saying it for years, neglect your chain and sprockets and they could wear out and be serviceable in as little as 3,000 miles. But with proper care, it is not uncommon to see over 20,000 miles out of a quality chain paired with quality steel sprockets. With a set of chain and sprockets costing well over $300, an ounce of prevention is a pound of cure.

The Products We Use

Yes, we understand that it may have a silly name, but no motorcycle garage should be without the Grease Ninja. It puts lube exactly where it needs to be, preventing over-spray our waste. We've been using this product for several years and can confidently say that the Grease Ninja has extended the lives of our chains. For only $15 you really need one of these.
