Motorcycle chains / Universal chain set

In the course of development, various secondary drive solutions have become established in motorcycle construction. In the beginning there was only the motorcycle chain to transmit the engine power to the rear wheel. Today, motorcycle manufacturers offer among other things cardan shafts and timing belts. The most commonly used drive system is still the chain. It is inexpensive and robust with the right care. In addition, a change is comparatively simple. In the TECbike Online Shop you will find a wide selection: Discover the right drive chain for your bike from DID.

The chain for your motorcycle - important link

The so-called secondary chain is the connection between the output sprocket of the transmission and the rear sprocket. This makes it possible to transmit power from the gearbox output shaft to the rear wheel, thus driving the bike forward.

A chain is a wearing link in the drive train and is subject to extreme stress. It depends not only on regular care and maintenance, but also on your riding style, how long the drive chain will last.

The A and O: correctly adjusted chains

First things first: not all chains are the same. It has the task of converting the entire power of the engine into forward motion. The following factors determine the choice of your DID chain set:

    t
  • Engine power/displacement
  • t
  • Machine weight
  • t
  • Torque

To put it very casually: the heavier the "buck" and the more horsepower you tame under your reverse side, the greater the chain load. Not to forget the torque that is balanced to the rear axle with every pull of the throttle.

The right tension is important

A chain that is adjusted too tightly leads to excessive pressure, the teeth on the sprocket wear out early. Furthermore, the rollers and sleeves between the individual chain links can be damaged. The bearings of the rear axle and the transmission output shaft are also affected. If extreme loads occur, for example due to a very deep spring deflection, the chain can even break.

If the chain is too loose, it is possible that it will jump off the sprocket. This results in a whip-like effect, the chain breaks. Very often a torn chain also damages the engine housing. Such actions endanger you, too, as your limbs can take considerable damage.

What types of chains are there?

At TECbike we offer you different types of chains. In the following we would like to introduce the most common variants.

The inexpensive one: Standard roller chains without sealing

This chain variant is probably the cheapest option and is recommended for mopeds up to 125 cc. Between bolt and sleeve the internal lubrication is missing. For you this means: These chains must be lubricated often. There is also the possibility that dirt and moisture can penetrate between the individual components of the chain. The wear of standard roller chains is correspondingly high.

O-ring and X-ring chains with sealing

Modern chains for the motorcycle have a grease filling between the sleeve and the pin. Between the outer and inner link plates, small rings of synthetic rubber provide the important seal.

The shape of the cross-section of the sealing rings gives them their name. These important sealing rings not only prevent dirt from getting between the links, they keep the permanent grease filling in place.

X-ring chains work in a similar way. They differ only in the shape of their cross section, which is shaped as an "X". In contrast to the O-ring (two contact surfaces), X-rings have four sealing contact surfaces with the outer and inner link plates. They maintain the lubricity of the chain longer, which leads to a longer service life.

High quality products for chain maintenance

Clearly, toothed belts or the cardan are low-maintenance. Modern sealing ring chains can withstand even brute force and the most adverse conditions (dirt, water, heat, salt etc.) more or less loosely. Nevertheless they need regular care.

With little effort you can double the life expectancy of your new DID chain set. If the chain kit receives regular devotion, 25,000 to 30,000 kilometres can be achieved. What exactly does chain maintenance involve?

First of all there is the cleaning of the chain, followed by checking and adjusting the chain tension and alignment. Finally, the lubrication of the motorcycle chain must not be forgotten. At what intervals should you clean and maintain the chain? That depends on your mileage. The more you ride, the more often you have to take care of the chain.

Step 1: Clean drive chain

Here the good old handicraft is needed. With a high-pressure cleaner it would certainly be faster, but the high water pressure rinses out the permanent grease filling, water gets into the inner life of your motorcycle chain.

In our assortment you get special chain cleaners. These products are a mixture of solvents and penetrating agents. Not only does it remove dirt and lubricant residues from the chain, but the cleaners are also gentle on the sealing rings.

Step 2: Lubricate - the only way it runs smoothly

You cleaned the chain, tightened it, and checked for escape. Now the lubrication inside and outside is on the to-do list. Lubricating grease needs time until the adhesive additives take full effect. They should prevent the grease from being spun off. Therefore we recommend never to apply the grease immediately before driving.
