WD40 in a rag, clean the grime off the chain(get a rear stand)

I use what Patrick recommended a while ago w complete satisfaction... Belaire o-ring chain lube. Spray the inside of the chain while turning wheel. Centrifical force will pull the grease out. continue to apply on both sides and outside. Clean off excessive amount so you dont spray.

now if it actually sounds like a faint whistle it is most likely the piston just moving inside the cylinder...if you replaced the piston and put a wiseco in the bike it will do this occasionally as they dont have as tight of a tolerance inside the cylinder as a stock piston will.


He's talking about a Kawasaki Ninja 250r bro, not a 2-stroke MX 250r

Motorcycles Unlimited I would always recommend. And Patrick may show you how to lube it.

I trust him w my babies. His word is gold for me. If he says rubber side up, that's how the bike shall be. lol



Cyclegear has it too, but without the experience and demonstration.

if you're bored now, get some blue painters tape and tape up the area around all of the lense on your helmet. if it goes away, its the seal on the helmet. you could tape the vents too...

B, I've got a rear stand; I just use 90w gear lube on my chain, though, per the Suzuki manual. It's been working fine for me for 5,500 miles so far. Epoxy garage floor for easy cleanup. If you want to come by over the Thanksgiving weekend I'll walk you through the process. Rice Military, near Feagan & Birdsall.

Thanks rhenriksen for showing me how to lube the bike chain...

Also...just wanted to report back today...the sounds i had heard when i first started this thread is no longer there...the weird thing is, i didn't hear it at all even before the chain was lubed...

oh well...thanks again Robert.

Keep your fingers away from chains, sprockets, and rags when cleaning chains. Never do it with the bike running on the stand, except to spray the lube. Always rotate by hand. Don't ask how I know this, but one mangled fingered friend on the board learned an even harder way than I did. It sucks having to call your wife out to the garage to help you back up the wheel and get your fingers on ice.
