    Hi, I got my Lime green a coupla months back, For the last 2 weeks, I ride her in the rain, thus my radiator and exterior got mud and I wash her every 3 days, so no damage due to rain at all...

    But just today I noticed my chain got rusted, So Please tell me what I need to do here, If I clean my chain with diesel and the chain spray, will that do. Will this rusted chain result in any performance issues. Please help me with this.

    Total Kms Spent with her - 2300 , last chain cleaning 1500 kms.
    if you ride in the rain / water comes on the chain, there will be rust on the chain in 2 days. instead of 500 kms if water comes on the chain it is better you put SAE 90 oil and lube the chain.instead of chain lube you would be better off with SAE 90 oil. The disadvantage of SAE 90 oil is that you may have to lube more frequently if you are riding highways.

    the thumb rule is the chain(with O rings) is to be a wet chain with oil / chain lube always.

      The manual suggests SAE 30 oil for lubing the chain. But oil (SAE 30 or 90) will get thrown off the chain onto the wheels due to centrifugal forces at play. Sticky oil or lube designed for such use is best as it stays on the chain longer.

        please see page 99 and 100 of the manual. they suggest SAE 90 oil. the manual suggests only oil and not any other type of lube. it gives a good description on how to lube the chain. it is better that every owner reads it.

          I have been waved through after approaching the red channel with a full two piece leather suit that cost more than 50K and yet have been roasted for a 8K helmet. That to it was used by me while abroad! I have once paid twice the value of 7K priced touring boots as duty and yet another time been waved through with 3 sets of specialty bike shields bought for friends.

          My attitude with Indian Customs - since you can't predict how they will behave, its best to keep an open mind - and be prepared to pay the duty if asked to!


          what is the update on the ninja 650 you have booked? have you got the delivery ?

                            You don't have to worry about anything, you are going to own the BEST sport bike in it's class. Please do take time to go through the thread. It's got more info on ownership of the bike than that can be put in one post. You won't regret going through all the pages.
