Default Re: General maintenance?

I tie a ratchet strap tomy bikes ever so often and winch them off the floor/ground spin the wheels, check for wobble/ loose bearing tension and give all other mounting hardware a look over, brake pads and cables get a look also and if chain is in need of some attention it get a fresh coat of Maxima Chain wax and never a single drop of oil since I live down dusty dirt roads and oil and dirt are a bad combo for chains in my experience, I get the Maxima Chain wax that comes in a spray can from my local Yamaha dealership, best stuff I have ever used, it repels dirt and dust and gives a good lubrication coating inside oan out of the chain rollers.

Several online sources for the stuff, it isnt messy once it sets up on the chain, doesn't sling off and get onto other parts of the bike and my chains last and stay in excellent shape using it ever in all the dirt and grime I ride in.

I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
