Regina Z-ring chain & 80w90 gear lube... YUCK
Posted September 18, 2004 - 07:25 PM
i was hesitant to do this, but did anyway. as i suspected, the chain looks like crap from all the sand sticking to the gear lube. i know the chain lube subject has been worked to death, but does anybody have any opinions on using gear lube as a chain lube ? i know i'm not to impressed with it.

the most crappy part on regina is connector link, as the plate is not stiff enough
thats why use cheap X-ring chain (industrial 520), with very high stretch resistance and lube it with engine oil, grease or whatever lube i find, but make sure the riding conditions match the lube - anyway deep mud and water wet-clean any lube in a matter of seconds
remember that much italian mid to high-tech stuph is crap!!

the first gone bad on a TTR600, low quality o rings
no chain will break if you change it every 1500 miles (of real workout), but quality shows in prolongued use
to think Im not the only one to dislike the reginas, there is quite a substantial number of people avoiding them
road reginas are supposed to be fine, as they are not so dirt enforced
just for you, no need to carry the whole chain, but an extra connector link in a pocket is a must in serious trailing
