Chain Maintenance...?
Permalink  
 


Hey Guys,

Just recently bought a 2010 TTR250, and im loving it.

Unfortunately i dont know much about motorcycles as i am new to riding, but i was just curious if you need to do any chain maintenance every now and then just so the life span is longer and less hassles?

If so what do i need to do and the products i should get?

Cheers

I would clean it with paraffin and a paintbrush and then lube it with used engine oil.

Hey Bysa, welcome to the forum, you'll love the bike, just take it easy when riding dirt, go to youtube and look up riding skills or how to ride or something like that, go slow, half the fun of dirt bikes is learning new skills

Look up Shane Watts, an Aussie champ and he has instructional DVD's as well, I have the first DVD, also look up "DSR techniques" they have 2 instructional DVD's which I have as well, very useful how to ride instructions

clean your chain with turps, don't throw out the old turps, put it in a jar and let it settle, then pour off the clean stuff and use it again, you can make 4 litres of turps last like 20 litres or more

DONT USE PETROL, it washes the lube out of the rollers

Cheers

Steve
