I don't think there is an overboard. I put 25K miles on my stock chain. Replaced it with an X-ring recently. Every Sunday, my daughter and I check the oil, air pressure and clean the chain. I usually clean with wd40 and no lube. That's what I did with the stocker and it looked pretty damn good when we had to dremel it off. Routine takes maybe five minutes if we get to chatting.Do the x-ring chains need to be cleaned and cared for the same as the o-ring chain?
How often should a normal chain be lubricated? Does the normal chain need to be protected from corrosion the same as the o-ring chain?
In what way does one go about protecting the chain from corrosion? I ask this because my history in aircraft maintenance might cause me to take it a little overboard.
Sure thing, brother. The KLR likes simple things.Awesome, thanks lockjaw. I am glad you told me about WD cause I was about to use a metal-on-metal CPC that we used to use back in the Army for corrosion control and prevention on the airframes! Probably a bit of overkill, lol.
