  • Is it time to replace your motorcycle chain?

  • Rust can form fairly quickly if your motorcycle gets wet and the chain is not properly lubed. A little surface rust does not always mean your chain is completely ruined, but if the pins and rollers are also rusted, it likely means the seals are bad. In that case, it鈥檚 time to replace the chain.

  • How often should I replace my Chain and sprocket?

  • A common rule is to replace both front and rear sprockets every time you replace your chain. This is a good rule to follow if your chain has lasted for its full life of, say, 15,000 miles.

  • How often should you clean your bike chain?

  • Keeping your chain clean, properly lubed, and adjusted will extend the life of a chain by thousands of miles. It鈥檚 good practice to quickly wipe down your chain after a long day of riding, (more than 100 miles) then give it a quick spray of chain lube.

  • How can you tell if a chain is worn on a motorcycle?

  • Another, much easier way to check for a worn chain is to try to pull the chain away from the rear of the sprocket on the rear wheel. If the chain is worn, you’ll reveal about half a tooth of the sprocket. A new chain will wrap around the sprocket snugly and won’t pull away.
