curious as to where and how you installed yours. got any pics?use kerosene/paraffin. Cheap as, cleans it beautifly and compatible with the O-rings of the chain.
Consider a Tutoro chain oiler. Makes chain maintenance easy. have had mine on my RE Himalayan now for 20 000 kms and will not be without it.
Don't know which paraffin you are talking about as what I am talking about is an oil and it does not evaporate. This is what I am refering to..Paraffin will rust steel , so is not a good choice - back in the day it was a quick and easy way to deglaze glazed cylinders , without taking the heads off!
It might also penetrate past the O rings and dilute the special lube that they they seal in, and when that is gone the chain follows PDQ.
It will also remove the vital lubricant, you have applied, which you don't want to do, it is only dirt that you want to remove.
If you have a chain oiler, and a squeeze bottle and tube works just as well as the expensive items, easiest way is just to give it a decent quantity of lube, and as the excess flings off it takes the dirt on the vital surfaces with it,
Then just a wipe of the side plates with a rag or paper towel and you are done.
this is where I fitted it....curious as to where and how you installed yours. got any pics?
Your post said paraffin , and I only said that paraffin will rust iron.
