I just want to clean all the grease n grime from the sprocket area, hub area and anywhere else in those areas. I’m looking forward to a fresh start as the original owner wasn’t the best with maintenance. I bought mine with 2K on it.
Just put a new rear on, front is 75%, new chain n sprockets - it will be a new bike.
@93Octane There are many equally good approaches to cleaning and lubing the chain, the main thing is to keep it clean and lubed, while being careful not to damage the O rings as @Invincible mentions above.
A small bit of this product with a rag and toothbrush, goes a long way, and makes it a quick task to clean and lube the chain and sprockets, for my bikes, every 200 miles.
Thank you. I'm ok with chain cleaning, its more of the stuff on the swing arm and behind the front sprocket, any junk on the rear sprocket hubs etc... I figured since everything is off, why not a good detail since I'm in there.
Kerosene (or WD40 which about the same stuff) + rag to clean the chain. I've been using gear oil lately and find the chain stays much cleaner than gunky chain dressing.
It's fine to use it to clean the wheel, sprocket and swingarm too. (Just keep it off the brakes and take a few test stops to clean the brake pads). After it's clean you might some spray cleaner like Plexus is give it a clean wax finish.
