This operation is one of the simplest and most important in the maintenance of a motorcycle.

When?

Is your chain dirty? Have you been riding in a storm or in the rain? Is it noisy or dry? Then it’s time clean and grease it!

Necessary equipment

Here’s what you need :

List of products required:

  • X-Trem Chain
    THE chain grease that sticks for up to 800km.

  • Chain Cleaner
    THE degreaser that cleans and makes your chain shine like it’s brand-new.

  • The chain brush
    The indispensable accessory for optimal cleaning of the chain and sprocket.

1. Clean

First with Chain Cleaner

Spray all of the chain with the chain cleaner. Its powerful spray allows you to remove all the dirt, old grease and grime. Let it sink in for a few minutes.

Utilize the brush

Brush the chain by rotating the rear wheel in the direction of travel to remove all impurities. Easy peasy!

2. Lube

Before lubing your chain, be sure to go for a ride. This warms up the chain, allowing the grease to penetrate the links more effectively.

With the X-Trem Chain

Rotate the rear wheel in the direction of travel and spray the x-trem chain along the entire length of the chain, focusing the spray towards the inside.

Allow the grease to penetrate the links for about two hours before going on the road again.
