Re: chain removal

You'd have to break a link to remove it.

Re: chain removal

buy the grunge brush, its made to clean a chain, I love mine, cleans really nice but its always gonna be hard to clean the side closest to the rim but if you're gonna get that picky just put a new chain on

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

Yeah, you'd just need the tools/links to put it back together I think.

You'll still need the tools to put the new chain together, unless you just let the dealer install it. Usually a good idea to replace the chain and sprockets at the same time.

If it's all in good shape, just clean it while it's on the bike.

Re: chain removal

Is the chain worn or stretched? Otherwise, just remove the rear tire and front sprocket cover to have the best access to the sprockets. I never clean my chains...but that's just me . Some people keep them looking like brand new and get 20k or so miles out of them.

Have fun .

SPEED.

Re: chain removal

ok to try and avoid any flaming or a useless long thread i'll put an end to this before it starts..i go down to race city..the local track/dragstrip and race my bike on the 1/4 mile..im going for a higher tooth sprocket for more low end torgue and less top end..the sprocket isnt for stunting if thats what you're thinking.

You should be able to clean it extremely well on the bike. I do it all the time.

Bikes and women - both have nice curves.
