Unbelievably there are still riders out there who reapply their Chain Lube or Chain Wax ride after ride, without cleaning it off in between. Ideally, you should clean your chain after every ride and then reapply your lubricant product. This may not be realistic for you, but by not cleaning your chain dirt, grime and oil can build up risking irreparable damage, which could cost you money! To help reduce wear, maintain performance and make your chains last longer, you should use a chain cleaner regularly. Try out our WD-40 Specialist Motorbike Chain Cleaner, to see for yourself.
