Lubrication Unusual Conditions

If the motorcycle is operated under extremely dusty or dirty conditions, whether equipped with a rear chain oiler or not, additional lubrication of the rear chain may be advisable. Remove chain from motorcycle. Soak and wash thoroughly in a pan of kerosene. Remove chain from kerosene and hang so kerosene will drain off. Immerse in a pan of grease heated to consitency of light engine oil, or use light engine oil. While immersed, move chain around to be sure that hot grease or oil works through all inside parts. After removing, allow chain to drain and wipe all surplus grease or oil from surface of chain. Install chain on motorcycle. Inspect connecting link and spring clip closely for bad condition. Replace if at all questionable. Be sure spring clip is properly and securely locked on pin ends with open end trailing direction of chain travel.
