CLEANING AND LUBRICATING

 

CAUTION:

Do not use trichlene, gasoline or any similar fluids:

These fluids have too great a dissolving power for this chain and , what is more important, can damage the O-rings (or seals) confining the grease in the bush -to-pin clearance.  Remember, high durability comes from the presence of grease in that clearance.

 

 

CAUTION:

do not use any oil sold commercially as "drive chain oil".  Such oil too can damage the O-rings (or seals).  The standard drive chain is DAIDO D.I.D. 520VC-5 or TAKASAGO RK520SO.  SUZUKI recommends that this standard drive chain be used for the replacement.
