Nice video. Well made. Perhaps it's the 3rd cup of coffee I just finished, but you should allow double-speed playback. The video goes a bit slow.
For sure man. Thanks for the feedback and thanks for watching.Nice video. Well made. Perhaps it's the 3rd cup of coffee I just finished, but you should allow double-speed playback. The video goes a bit slow.
Not a bad video. I use kerosene too. I usually take the front sprocket cover off too and clean all the gunk out of there.Just me on my first time cleaning and lubricating the chain on my 2013 Honda CBR250RA.
Thanks for the tip about cleaning the front sprocket too. I'll make sure I do that next time. I did measure the freeplay from 3 different locations of the bottom chain, and I thought it was within 1 inch. I'll check again next weekend.Not a bad video. I use kerosene too.

I'm not sure if anyone else noticed, but your chain seems fairly tight, doesn't look like the usual 25-35mm of freeplay.
You ever notice the grunge brush screwing up orings? Because I've had an RK chain for ~4k miles and had at least 6 orings come out already, and when I contacted RK about it they were telling me it was from the brush.You don't have to remove it, but you can get the chain a bit cleaner and get the lube on more evenly. I usually don't take it off, but I'm also usually in a hurry and pressed for time. My grunge brush does most of the dirty work for me.
There are a lot of different opinions on what a reasonable interval is, but I'll usually lube the chain every 250 miles, and clean & lube every 1000 miles.Hey guys ive only just started riding bikes. How often should one clean an lube a chain? What sort of signs am i looking for?
I'm pretty sure I picked one up off of eBay for around $5.Thanks for the additional comments. I've seen the grunge brush before I made this video and was thinking of getting it to make chain scrubbing easier but I thought it was too expensive.
