Step By Step: How To Inspect, Lubricate, and Adjust a Motorcycle Chain

Using proper lubricants will lengthen chain life considerably.

While rotating the wheel, evenly spray a layer of lubricant across the chain as it runs along the sprockets. Be sure to also spray at the bottom of the rear sprocket, where the lubricant can spread across the chain from the inside using centrifugal force, and penetrate the entirety of the chain. Wipe off excess lubricant with a rag.
