Today we take a look at two
products to help you stay on the trail rather than dreaming
you were on the trail. Chain maintenance is very importance
to a quads checklist of things to do before and after you
ride. A clean, properly lubed chain will help prolong the life of the chain
over normal wear and tear too. As well, follow your owners
manual for the proper chain tension. To much tension and
you'll stretch your chain, to little and your chain could come
The first of these two products comes
from Simple Solutions, called “The Grunge Brush™.”
The Grunge Brush™
is a sturdy plastic handled brush, made specifically when
cleaning the o-ring chain on your ATV. The Grunge Brush™
is just the first step in keeping
that chain running smoothly and extending its life past normal wear and tear.
The Grunge Brush™
has a U-shaped head for quick and easy cleaning coverage of
your chain. Inside the
U-shaped head are three separate bristle pads. These pads are
made up of many tightly nit nylon bristles of medium stiffness. There is just
enough stiffness in these bristles to scrub away the dirt and
grime build-up and not
damage the o-rings. The U-shaped head even flexes so you can
apply gentle pressure to make sure that every tough nuke and cranny
of your chain gets cleaned.
you have thoroughly cleaned your chain, you’ll need to apply
the second of these two products, some type of chain lube. This is were a product from Finish
Line fits the bill. KryTech Wax Lubricant should be applied to a
clean chain to help keep that chain running freely and smoothly.
A thin, evenly distributed amount of KryTech Wax Lubricant
will do the job. Do not over spray your chain, as this
leads to a messy, glob filled chain. KryTech
Wax Lubricant uses special anti-wear waxes, rust inhibitors
and a metal bonding material from Dupont. KryTech Wax
Lubricant has a no oily, greasy, grime-absorbing feel to it.
Thus keeping the dirt and grime away from your chain and
riding that muddy or dusty trail. The lubricity and
bonding power of KryTech Wax Lubricant means that even during
deep water rides and high speeds, you will know that you are
not leaving your chain wax behind. KryTech Wax Lubricant
is 100% o-ring compatible too.
After each ride, these are just two steps you should do to keep
your ATV chain in tip-top-running order.
