tks! :smile:

 

btw, wat do u do with the leftover diesel tt u might hav? do u juz pour it into the drain??? :confused:

 

then if i were to change engine oil myself, wat do i do with the oil too? how to dispose it? :confused:

 

many tks again brudder! :smile:

 

Left over diesel = Keep and reuse.

 

Old Engine oil =

DISPOSE PROPERLY. Bike shops can dispose for you usually for a price. NEVER dispose down the drain (your kids will get cancer!).

NEVER leave it in the car park (cos cleaner will anyhow dump, then your kids will get cancer).

IF you have car or company vehicle, dump into engine Our engine oil will usually have a bit of life in it when we want to change it anyway (then the car mech will get rid of it for you when u change oil :p)

I like the following chain lubes:

 

1. Liqui Moly Racking Chain Lube ($11 for a 400ml can)

2. Motorex Chain Lube ($14 for a big can)

 

So far, these two are the best I have tried and gives good performance for Phantom 200.

if this is the case, your chain is spoiled already.

This is found on my bike manual.

The drive chain in this omtorcycle is equipped with small O-rings between the link plates. These O-rings retain grease inside the chain to improve its service life. The O-rings in this chain can be damaged by steam cleaning, high pressure washers, and certain solvents. Clean the side surfaces of the chain with a dry cloth. DO NOT brush the rubber O-rings. Brushing will damage them. Wipe dry and lubricate only with SAE 80 or 90 gear oil. Commercial chain lubricants may contain solvents which could damage rubber O-rings.

maybe if pull till cannot pull liao.. can cut e chain? than its shorter again n can use again? :smile:

 

no. ur chain already expand. it may snap one day n cause u more trouble.

go buy new chain. spend abit more on quality ones.

also, new chain need to go with new f/r sprockets.

 

insist on original ones.. if not, get VAZ rear sprockets.

 

dun bother with those Renthal, AFAM race sprockets.

its not meant for daily riding. its light coz made of aluminium but the wear&tear rate...

 

u need proper maintanance on chain.

clean with diesel n soft paint brush wen its very dirty..

but always remember to lube it at least every 2weeks.

can different types of lubrication be used on the chain over a period of time??

 

got a small can from LAB, but spray already makes my chain looks whitish..

the inside i cannot spray, just move bike a little and spray slowly...

 

can use castrol grease to lubricate it?? i think tt's what the workshop applies for me when they first did tt for me when my bike gives noises when it runs above 70km/h...

 

some kind of 'kok kok' sound... :?

Pls don't use grease to lubricate. It makes your chain look lubricated, but actually does not penetrate into the rollers and pins. If you're using o ring chain, you might still get away with it as the critical pins are sealed and self lubricating, as long as the grease does not eat the rubber. The rollers will still be 'dry' though.

 

If you're using roller chain, I've found that gear oil applied sparingly is still the most effective in terms of lubricity, much better than commercial lubes/wax which are more focused on anti-fling properties to keep your rim clean. Waxes accumulate into crud over time and result in lube starvation at the critical areas inside the chain.

For o-ring chains, one should never use degreasers like WD-40, RP-7, kerosene or diesel as they will strip the lubricant from the o-rings and the chain will be permanently damaged.

 

Wipe dry, then use gear oil or use Castrol chain wax ($10) will do.

This I agree. I was surprised when some guys recommended kerosene and diesel to clean the chain. But then again, to each his/her own.

 

I asked my uncles who rides, they said not to clean the chain with those stuff, rather, clean with the chain lube instead.
