VIDEO: Motorcycle chain maintenance

Your chain is an unbelievably important part of your bike’s make-up.

It links the engine to your rear wheel and without it, you’d struggle going anywhere.

It’s essential for your bike and if it’s overlooked then the damage can be expensive and sometimes irreparable.

That’s why basic chain maintenance is vital to the sound running of your bike, especially as your chain is exposed to all the nasty bits of the road.

Here, Lewis Osler, Thundersport 500 rider and Honda Mechanic, shows you how to clean and lube your motorcycle’s chain to keep it in tip top condition.
