Ketting skoon maak prosedure, of band keuse, is n bietjie, soos om n girl te kies, wat nice is vir een ou, is dalk n ramp vir n ander

Hoekom worry oor n ketting as jy oor n FD kan worry?  Dink groot! :thumleft:

Have to agree that a high pressure hose in the wrong hands can do much damage to a motorcycle.  Same applies to most power tools in the wrong hands.

However if you operate your high pressure hose with finesse, it makes the cleaning job 30x easier, faster, and more efficient in terms of less water consumption. 

For example, a tyre doesn't care anything for high pressure water cleaning.  Nor does the underside of your mudguards.  Nor the chain.  Nor the back sprocket. nor the foot pegs.  Nor the underbelly skid plate.  That's almost half the bike that doesn't care about high pressure water cleaning.

Agreed; care and finesse with the high pressure cleaner for rest of the bike.  It is an easy "how to".  With the hose on, you just step back 1 m.
Some sense at last…..

Except tht the rear end of the underbelly skidplate ends right near the........swingarm bearings :eek7:

And the chain, which apparently does not care about high pressure water through it's "O" ring seals, pivots at two ends at oil seals and bearings. :eek7:

Uhm...
Die joetjoep video is bietjie misleidend.
Al die apllications is via n pressurised can, hoe dan nou met die gear olie?
As jy vryhand dit moet opsit, is dit nie eweredig nie. Maar wel oorbodig, so maak nie seker eintlik saak nie.

Dit is eintlik hoekom n scott oiler so goed werk, drup dun olue op die binnekant van jou ketting wat dan deur die ketting werk na buite.
Dit lube jou rollers en oorkom roes, ten koste van n bietjie gemors?
Of baie gemors, afhangend van jou dosing  rate.

Soos al genoem. Kry ‘n goeie ketting en karring so min as moontlik met hom.
As jy moet, vee hom skoon met ‘n lap en lube met enige goeie dry lube, maar nie te veel nie. As jy grondpaaie ry, bly weg van enige wet lube of olie. Dit trek stof en sand, wat nie goed is vir jou ketting nie en dit maak ‘n MOERSE gemors, veral rondom die voorste sprocket.

As ek bv my bike by ‘n handelaar laat diens, gee ek hulle baie uitdruklik opdrag om NIE aan die ketting te raak nie. Baie van hulle spuit ‘n lube op wat glad nie met grondpaaie saamwerk nie en dit maak so taai aanpaksel om die voorste sprocket wat bitter moeilik skoonmaak.
