So this is my first bike - and I hear it's good to lubricate the chain.
I picked up some chain lube along with my motorcycle-specific 10w40 at the parts shop to do an oil change (I've put 2K on the bike) - looks like a can of WD-40, little red tube that snaps on the nozzle and all.
I figured it would be easy, until I actually got to trying to lube the chain. Even with the spray tube on, if feels like only about 10% of the chain is exposed and available to spray. That chain hides good, inside the chain guard and behind the frame.
So I tried this:
1) Jack bike up on bike/ATV jack so rear wheel is off the ground
2) Start the bike in first
3) let the bike idle in first, let the wheel and chain spin as you spray lube from one location above the chain, one location below the chain
The only downside was that I got an oily spray from the excess oil on the chain that left a line in my driveway, and a big drip puddle directly under my spray locations.
There has to be an easier/better/cleaner way to do this.
