How to maintain an O-ring chain ?

4 posts in this topic

Anyone knows how to maintain an O-ring chain ?

The chain manufacturer says no solvents, no metal brush, no high pressure water. Sounds like logic, but how should I clean it ?

:)

I agree with mike use kero to clean. AND DON'T USE CHAIN WAX TO LUBE, as one chain importer I used to work for refused to warranty faulty chains if they were lubed with wax. He used to say the best lube is plain engine oil ( only problem is it flings off, so you have to frequently apply it).Also the stickier the chain lube the more dirt sticks to it.

While spinning the back wheel to clean or lube the chain BE CAREFULL OF YOUR FINGERS!!

:D
