Lubricating your chain can be such a hassle in Singapore. Especially when your HDB (Housing Development Board) home and your multi story carpark is far away but without a proper chain maintenance, you will end up paying for more chain replacement, have unnecessary broken chain on the road which can compromise your safety, or just wasting more petrol as your engine has to push as your chain are smooth in cycle.

In this video, I share how I lubricate my chains both on my sports bike (Ducati Supersport S) and street bike (Honda Super 4 C400 Spec 1).

Here are the links of stuff I used in this video:

Maxima Chain Wax Lube: https://www.motoworld.com.sg/maxima-chain-wax-large

Motorcycle Chain Brush: https://www.carousell.sg/p/chain-brush-42056970/

The rest of the stuff you can easily grab it in any DIY shop. 


My humble video equipments I use:

Camera: Canon M50 Mark I (https://sg.canon/)

Lighting: Nanlite Tubes (http://www.reddotphoto.com.sg)

Audio: Light weight and small FM-40 (https://www.carousell.sg/p/portable-fm40-mini-uhf-wireless-microphone-transmitter-receiver-for-dslr-mirror-less-cameras-audio-captured-equal-product-to-rode-wireless-mic-go-1033467551/)

Yes I've tried. The wheel roller dont work for my bike because its heavy. I tried it on my hayabusa. The bike has to be a little more upright to use it. As for jack stand, do you mean paddock? Currently the method I show in the video so far is the only one I deemed the safest as when your bike is jacked up, its just learning slightly towards your side stand so your bike won't fall over but that is if your bike side stand is in good condition and not those type without a base. Those types are risky even for normal parking use, I feel.
