Removing Oil from side stand/swingarm


Recommended Posts

oops, thats not good mate. are you oiling your chain when its hot?..could also be that your over oiling it. a good degreaser should remove the excess oil.

Hooch, yeah I did usually, maybe I did use too much...

Now I use a Dry Lube, I think the chain needs to be removed and cleaned properly. I lack the know how to perform this however...

Phil/Rennie....I will check into that, thanks!


They sell autoglym at Halfords for £3.99! And it looks like a multi purpose cleaning solution...sweet. :wink:

Just use a cloth soaked in a little petrol on the bike effected areas, use boot polish on the boots. If anything the oil on boots will help them (water proof)
