I thought so. Is this irreparable, or can you just put some white lithium on there and be done with it?

I doubt that would work. The rings wont soften back up. Once the rings dry out and crack, you need a new chain.

Interesting. I usually just clean it with Kerosene and lube it with Honda Lube, but the Honda Lube is all sticky and annoying.

Silicone on the other hand... nice.

Clean it with kero and lube... but understand the only reason to lube is to keep surface rust off the outside rivits... the chain itself don't need the lube... that's why you have o/x-rings

Well... I use PB Blaster and Chain Wax. 5,000 miles, and I turned my adjusters less than 1/2 turn today. Enough to bring the slack from just outside the 40mm spec to the low side at 30mm. I know the Blaster is lighter than Kero, but I haven't had any ill effects.

Just got my T-Rex stands! Love them- they make waxing the chain and adjusting it a ton easier. Have to modify my cleaning method to work with the stands though.

I use a motorex street clean and lube kit. You can get it at kneedraggers for like 20 bucks. It comes with a can of chain cleaner, a can of chain lube, a mini can of chain lube to keep in yer jacket, and a cleaning cloth

didn't wanna start a new thread so I'll just post it here... I just cleaned my chain with superclean (what I was told to use by the shop that put the chain and sprocket on) and when I lubed it with PJ1 blue it binds up bad... I've never done this before so I'm not sure if I'm do'n something wrong... I figured it was pretty simple... I decreased it scrubbed with the chain brush and then sprayed it off with a hose.... (like the instructions said...) then started spray'n the PJ1 Blue lube. I've used almost the entire can and it's bind'n up... bad... I feel like an idiot...
