Changed the putoline chain wax for morris chain lube, result: sticky patches on the sidewall where its dripped, though not on the tread. How best to remove the stickiness and does it have any safety implications?

Degreaser by Dupont or anything similar. Muck-off, Brakleen, etc.

WD40 works well and the water just runs off too. Also Ideal for brake discs as well as it stops them from rusting and working

All I use is WD-40. I figure, a clean chain is a happy chain!
Plus, it won't kill the o-rings.
Why does my wife get nervous when I walk out to the garage with a can of WD40, and rubber gloves on???
|By Crmc33 on Monday, October 21, 2002 - 08:42 am:|
I was talking of putting the WD40 on the tyres not the chain. That would be far too sensible
Walking out to the garage with a can of WD40 and rubber gloves is OK, its when you walk out of the garage with a copy of Superbike magazine and a tube of KY jelly...then she can start to get worried!
|By Racerxlilbro on Monday, October 21, 2002 - 11:45 am:|
NO, that's why I ALWAYS have a tube of KY in my toolbox!

So, sticky sidewalls not a problem unless resulting from unnatural act involving Superbike models....
And I can use WD40 instead of proprietary chain wax/oil?
Is there anything about this in Robert Pirsig's 'Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance'??
Or are the new gurus all inhabiting cyberspace?

I see Pirsig's out there now too

Best to use a good quality chain lube as this will give your sprockets an easier time of it, or even better...fit a scottoiler

...or a Rene airbox kit...
