This Silkolene Brake and Chain Cleaner 500ml Aerosol, with the latest smart straw applicator, is designed to clean off old and ‘dead’ chain lubricant from a motorcycle drive chain and sprockets including standard, O-ring and X-ring chains. Silkolene Chain and Brake cleaner is a powerful degreaser suitable for precision de-greasing of metal parts, leaving NO oily film. Silkolene Brake cleaner is also an ideal clutch and metal parts cleaner and helps to maintain the efficient operation of braking systems. Specially formulated to remove persistent brake pad dust, preventing “brake squeal” and “chatter”. For the best results the motorcycle rear wheel should be lifted safely off the floor, by using a centre stand, rear paddock stand etc. With a small catch container under the rear sprocket and turning the rear wheel away from you this Silkolene chain cleaner can then be used in combination with either a toothbrush, or chain brush, to remove old and stubborn chain lubricant. After the solvents have evaporated and the chain is dry, reapply a good chain lubricant such as Silkolene Pro Chain Race Chain Lube 500ml aerosol.
