don't use WD40!! it will degrade the o-ring seals in your chain. use a quality chain cleaner meant for o-ring/roller chains OR do like the manual says and clean the chain with kerosene. i had a little 22 oz fuel bottle, put about $1 of kerosene in it, and it's lasted me several chain cleanings and i still have plenty left. it works great, just melts the grease right off.ride your bike for a few miles to get the chain warm. spray the chain down with wd40 and wipe off all the dirt and crap, and wipe the chain dry. spray the chain with chain lube, let it sit for a minute then wipe off all of the excess. avoid using chain wax it makes a mess.:cheers
you need about an inch and a half of chain slack. as you suspension compresses the chain becomes tighter. if you don't have enough slack the chain will prevent you from being able to use all of your suspension travel and will cause the chain to wear faster.Thanks for the help guys...i will do what you said!
I looked at the manual, and need to figure out how to adjust the chain. Is this easy to do? I am not sure if needs adjustment or not but i will roll the bike and see how much slack it has. A normal amount should be pretty tight right? Just a little slack...i mean it shouldnt be all loose on there? Manual gave a number but im not good with that..Im better with a vidual of how loose or tight it should be
