    Default Chain Lubricant

    Who uses what to properly lubricate the drive chain of their bikes.

    I used high temperature motorcycle chain lube in a spray can (cant recall the name right now but a can cost Rs 300/- (last bought 3 years ago) - it dries to a wax and it does not fling off the chain while riding and keeps it nice and quiet.

    When cleaning/servicing a small bike - I take the chain off and wash it with cleaner/kerosene mix with a scrubbing brush - then immerse the chain into a hot molten grease liquid mixed with a very little 20W50 oil. remove chain and let to drip by hanging.

    Servicing chains this way elongates their life by many magnitudes

    ^ Good!
    Do share the results.
    One of the most difficult things in the world is to know how to do something, and to watch without comment, somebody else do it incorrectly.

    yep you got the right stuff - you'll notice how clean the chain and chain cover will be and the chain will not be affected by water

    @daniyal...thanx and the best part as xulfiqar mentioned is that its protected from water,,,,coz it stays rather than giving oil stain on riders clothes and on rims of bikes...its some how less diluted and comes out like a foam getting absorbed gradually while you keep rotating the wheel until the whole drive chain gets a treatment,,,silent and smooth drive is what pays off its price .....

    just keep it lubed nicely and see how long your chain lasts - keep chain tension according to the manufacturer recommendation - and you'll be good

    Umar. Plz be kind enough to check again their availability at hyperstar store when you go next time and post it here.
    I dont think that it would be their regular item. But may be they have in stock or will purchase more. I will have to go to Lahore in December and if these chain lubes are available will visit the store too.

    guys talking of chain of a two wheeler, i would like to drop a question of my own, just half an hour ago i removed one kari of my CD70 chain which i changed couple of month back, and while putting back lock of chain i was thinkin direction of the lock, and then just placed it on this note that for half rotaion it will be under stress from one side and and for other half of rotation tension will be on on other end of it.

    if there is some specific direction in which it should be placed plz share with its theory, i've explained my theory.

    the closed end (U end) of the master link lock should be facing normal direction of travel - i.e. from top of sprocket towards engine closed end should face engine - it'll be the same as the chain spins and travels from the engine to the rear sprocket, because you ride your bike forwards not backwards

    Thanks Umar. I have visited metro Islamabad a lot of times but this product is not available there. Import heaven showroom should keep such products at their showroom. Its opening tomorrow. Will visit there soon to check.
    Should be lucky if the can at Hyperstar stays there for long. Anyhow Thanks a lot.

    its sad in Pakistan that these type of maintenance items are rare. but it pays to have these at hand. Its what keeps you ON the road and not on the SIDE of it.

    Very truly said Xulfiqar.....I have personally experienced this phenomena that whenever u ask for something specific even the stockists become blank....few days back i was on a look out for side view mirror of my gs,,,,and usual response was we dont have side view mirrors for said model,,,they never even bothered to see the gauge of mirror holder that its somehow universal and gs-150 chrome painted ones which used to come in older models are very much comaptible.....but at the end i considered myself on top of the world after a successful hectic hunt,,,,what to say about this chain lubricant its scope is way too limited than a mirror.......

    A little off topic question:
    My car engine design employs a timing chain, so what are the precautions for its usage and service as there is no replacement time is mentioned in the manual.

    Further stalling of the engine while driving or during start causes the chain to suffer fatigue or not?

    the timing chain is lubed by the engine oil itself and has a life span of about 300,000 kms at least - as it employs an automatic tensioner that takes up slack, when the tensioner is fully extended and the chain has worn more you will HEAR the chain slapping, at that time you need a new chain.

    The chain takes the same amount of fatigue as a timing belt, in this case its a very good system as its constantly lubricated. Older cars like the Mazda 1300, 1500, 323, 626, 808, 929 all used timing chains and were very nice to operate - then came the advent of timing belts and bent valves
