While my trusty XS2 is down for a little repair, I took my chain off and thought I’d give it a good cleaning, I’ve been a little remiss with my chain lube. I soaked it in a plastic jug that had some old kerosene that I use for parts cleaning, everyday I’d go shake it a little. After a few days, I pulled it out and simply hosed it off and stretched it out on my hot driveway for an hour to dry. No scrubbing and this is the result. Then I got to thinking, I’d love to be able to lubricate the inside of those rollers and plates, so I got the bright idea to seal it up in a zip lock bag with a small amount of motor oil. I’ll give that a couple days to marinate, I had even thought about just using some used motor oil, but this stuff is cheap so...... Tomorrow, I’ll hang this chain up to drain into a pan for a day or two. I’m hoping that this thing doesn’t throw oil everywhere when I ride it for the first time!
