How to Maintain Your Motorcycle Chain

My bike chains :D

Chains is one of the important parts in the motorcycles. Their task is to transferring power from the engine to the rear wheel. So, they need a proper maintenance to prevent a worse thing that might come to you or other motorist. Chains should be inspected for every 2000 km or twice a month.

We just need to do two simple things in this maintain. First is lubricate then the last is adjusting the tension.

For lubricating we can use SAE 80-90 oil or chain lube product. It's not recommended to use a used oil as a lubricant. It just make it chain worse and more dirty. Before lubricating we need to clean the chain. Then lubricate the chain with rotating the wheel.

After that we inspect the chains if it need an adjustment by pull it up and down. Set the tension by moving the rear axle. Recommended tension is about 2cm - 3cm. Don't forget to see rear axle position by index marks shown in the swing arm. Match it left and right.

Finish. :D
