    How to Correctly Lube your Chain!

     

     

    Most people (probably 7 out of 10) don’t know how to correctly “lube” their Motorcycle Chain! A chain wears at it’s “Pins”, that holds the inner & outer Side Plates together.

     

    It’s “Pin” wear that causes your chain to stretch! (wear)

     

    Most people just spray the chain lube on the back of the sprocket down the middle of the chain. This does your chain very little good!!!! The chain “rollers need very little lubrication.

     

    The only correct way to get the “lube” to the Pins....is to spray just above the chain at the bottom of the sprocket & let “gravity” do the work. The lube will flow between the side plates to get to the shaft of the Pins.

     

    Then do the other side the same way. The difference between a improperly lubed chain & one that is “lubed” correctly can mean up to a 35% increase in the life of your chain!

     

    Remember that a properly lubed non O-Ring Chain with the same Tensile Strength.....will last just as long if “lubed” correctly! Even a X-Ring chain seals have to be lubed occasionally to keep them from drying out & help flush grit off the chain!!!!

    the common coolant that u purchase at the petrol station hav anti-freezing which cannot disperse the heat well..

    Engine Ice is Glyco Base, so in another words its anti freeze.....

    Yeah I know but machine price is quite low so the expensive parts can be offset. Don't feel like getting RVF,FireBlade or even S4. Just wana try and ride a bigger capacity bikes for experience before going cl2 license. Wana lend urs? :smile:

    I aint scaring you, anyway it doesnt benefit me.

     

    I seriously feel that you be better of with other 400cc.

     

    ZXR400 is a fine machine in every aspect, however it is known to fry its rocker arm and cam. And the repair bills can come up to more then 1 grand.

     

    I assure you that every ZXR400 will fry their cams and rocker arms.

    Hi all,

    I need some advice on how to harden my rear suspension.

     

    My rear suspension is adjusted to the max but due to my often pillon

    of friends and girlfriend, my sprocket & chain still wears real fast!

     

    I remembered that someone added on a spacer into the springs.

    Does it work?

    Does anyone know which Motor Tiam have it?

     

    Or is there a better idea?:help: :help:

    thanks a lot bro!! bwt my left suspension is leaking already. i guess i better change to a new pair. :smile:

    service them in a pair. at least you have consistent performance coming from both shock as they start life afresh with new suspension oil.
