GRR YOU HONDA CHAIN LUBE!

     

I was using my Honda Chain Lube yesterday at the track. The track is made out of this sandy dirt. Anyways. I was using it, and today when I was cleaning my bike off all the chain lube got all over the bike. The chain lube made all the dirty sand soil REALY tacky and sticky. Verry hard to clean off. I just spent about an hour and a half cleaning that bike (CR85) off and it still has a whole bunch of that chan lube and dirt/sand mix all over the left side of the rear fender and rear sprocket. Any help on getting this tacky dirt/chain lube off my bike? The chain lube has white graphite in it if that helps any.

Just take some paint thinner and wipe off the lube on the metal parts, then spray it down with water to make sure none of the paint thinner is left. The paint thinner cleans up glues and oils like nothing.

You can get paint thinner at any hardware store...

I wash my whole bike with simple green but, it doesn't clean everything, like chain lube.

The first advice I have for you is to not get chain lube on your bike! Second, is to use simple green to remove what is already there.

Yea, I suck at puttin on chain lube, so many times I get it all over my swingarm. Unfortunetaly, the messy sticky chain lube seems to work the best!

I just use WD-40 and a wet rag to get it off

Sounds nasty- try using some turps on that oil. I got fork oil all under my front fender where my seals are leaking and it got it straight off!!

Try getting it off with some gas on a cloth.
Works for me.

I usually just pull my chain off after every ride, clean it, and hit it up with chain wax. No mess.

I used some Honda Brake/Contact cleaner, it helped get it off alot. One thing I like about honda is they always have something to fix the mistakes they leave you with . I just spraid it on the chain and sprocket like i was lubing it and held a paper towel up to it and started spinnin the rear wheel. It still has a little on it. But no big clumps all over everywhere like it used. I used the same to get it off my plastics. i just squirted some on a new papertowel and rubbed on it and came right off. Thanks for the advice guys it's good to know I always have some people I can rely on
