I buy ecoline at my local dealership. There are other brands of water based chain cleaner as well. S100 is one.Taz did i read this right? you wax your chain?can you tell me more about this? whats it do for the chain that the chain gaurd dont do, and where do you get ecoline. sorry for the bombing of questions.
No... It lubes the chain so it rolls easier, doesn't rust and lasts longer. A chain that doesn't get lubed won't last very long. And the chain wax is much more durable than oil - the oil gets flung off pretty fast.thanks guys for the info. does the chain wax do the same for the chain that wax does for a car?
A tip with wax - lube the chain right after riding (while the chain is warm, wax seeps in better) and then let it cool at least 15 minutes before riding againYah, i know that first hand. ill be getting chain wax now, thanks SVS.
I sometimes heat the chain up with a hair dryer, wax, wipe the excess off, then let it set overnight.
