for minor cleaning, i use wd40 , wipe it dry then put chain lubricant, but if i have access with a pressure washer then i spray the chain to dislodge any dirt and grime, i spray it downward beside the rd pulley then after that i put wd40 to displace the water, wipe it dry and put lubricant ..... para lang sa mga tamad eto hehehe.

pag maputik, tubig lang, tapos punasan til dry, then lube.

After every season, I take off the chain, babad sa WD40, patuyuin, then lube again.

Yung wd40, pag iniwan mo, mas madaling kumapit yung mga buhangin.

try this ...brushing/washing it with hot water mixed with detergent then rinse it .. then apply some lube to the chain, then your chain will look as new.

Babad sa kerosene then apply soap and brush it, patuyuin then apply white lightning. Alternative ng white lightning (from unclebob), magtunaw ng kandila at isawsaw yong bagong hugas na chain. Ikabit and forget longer than lubes. :)

Default Re: Share your chain cleaning tips

i'v tried this both :

1. toothbrush with joy ..... buhos tubig tapos punas lagay ng lube na white lightning

2. tanggalin ang chain ..... ibabad sa kerosene after a few minutes isampay tapos punasan at lagyan ng lube na white lightning

pros and cons - mas mabilis yung no 2 .... mas malinis at madaling matanggal yung mga dumi sa no 2 .... kung ayaw mong magtanggal kabit ng chain use no 1

I just broke my chain after I did use kerosene to clean it then after left it overnight to dry it then sprayed with Repsol Cadenas, white grease for motorcycle chains. I probably should have thoroughly rinsed all the kerosene with water. I was experimenting chain cleaning and lubrications whenever i get it muddy trails or rains. The link of my chain that broke was the inner one and it held off until i notice it when cleaning my bike

Parehas tayo dude nangingitim yung chains, siguro ganun talaga kasi nakapit yung mga lupa alikabok at kung ano ano pa, pero in my case ginagamit ko lang yung gear oil na pang sasakyan tlga and in terms of cleaning, thourough brushing lang with the use of a tooth brush sa mga parts, konting tyaga lang kasi mahirap talagang linisin ang isang bagay na madaling madumihan haha!

every major ride tinatangal ko ung chain (using missing link para madali), then ilalagay ko sya sa container na may kerosene.. kakalugin ko until makita mo na white na uli ung chain..rinse with water..dry for 10 minutes..ikabit uli sa bike and put a drop of oil every link..ok na un..

pero syempre dapat nabrush mo na ung cassette and chainring para lahat malinis..

simple at murang panglinis ang kerosene at garantisadong tangal lahat pati maduming oil sa pagitan ng bushing, pin at ring ng chain link..

Pwede na yun Joy dishwashing liquid na diluted sa tubig sa paglinis ng drivetrain (chain, cranks & cassette) ng bike gumamit ka lang ng basahan sa paglinis ng chain at cranks...pwede rin gumamit ng basahan sa paglinis ng cassette. tiklupin mo lang yun basahan para malinis yung mga gilid, pero kung nahihirapan ka gamit ng basahan i suggest na gumamit ka ng lumang sintas ng sapatos (shoelace) na kasya sa mga gilid ng cassette. (lumang sintas ng converse chuck taylor ang mare-recommend ko) ipasok ang sintas sa mga gilid ng cassette para linisin parang "dental flossing" ang style ng paglinis. Huwag kalimutan patuyuin bago lagyan ng bagong lube ang chain, tamang dami lang ng lube sapat na yun para ma-lube ang cassette mag-shift every gear sa rear shifter para ma-distribute ang lube sa cassette. Kasi kapag sobrang lube ang nilagay magiging dirt magnet ang drivetrain at madaling mangitim dahil sa dumi.


Regarding sa tanong mo na may dumi o sand/dust residue, i think dapat mo na linisin yun, ang paglinis sa drivetrain ay depende sa gamit ng bike kung madalas ka mag-bike i would suggest once a month ang drivetrain cleaning & re-lubing. sapat na yun para ma-maintain ang drivetrain.


Another thing, never use WD-40 sa paglinis ng chain at drivetrain o gamitin yun as a lubricant, masama sa chain yun.

Yup, no need to remove the chain para malinis ang chain unless talagang kailangan, gamit lang ng basahan na binabad sa diluted na Joy dishwashing liquid ipunas sa chain hanggang sa matanggal ang dumi at lumang lube then patuyuin ang chain gamit ng tuyong basahan, sa cassette naman gamit ng sintas ng sapatos na binabad din sa diluted Joy para malinis ang gilid ng cassette then patuyuin din before applying new lube.

Ganyan tlaga problem ng oil based lubricant, magnet ng dumi. Although pagtagulan i think no choice ka yan tlaga gagamitin mo.

Kung gusto mo malinis ang chain try dry type na lube like Squirt. And I think di kailangan lagyan ng lube ang cranks and cassette, yung chain lang po.

use dishwashing liquid para matanggal ang dumi (yung itim), patuyuin tapos lagyan ng Lube... use Squirt.

IMHO...don't use oil kasi magnet yan ng alikabok.
