"The best cleaner for all motorcycle chains is using good quality mineral spirits. I learned this trick from my grandfather many years ago. He was a machinist for many years and they would always use mineral spirits to degrease and clean many of their machines and tools. Mineral spirits are a petroleum based product that should not harm o-rings. Mineral spirits are also used in conjunction with a oil as a lubricant/coolant when tapping and dying metals. I have personally used this method for years; on both on-road and off-road bikes. I love your web site, keep up the great work."
