Final drivechain opinions
Morning guys
Running an ISR sprocket brake setup on my CFL and have a rusty chain after a few thousand miles (yes its ridden in the rain occasionally) :eek: Must admit even though its a good quality o-ring type chain i,m suprised how quickly its corroded, although i,m a little reluctant to go mad with the chain lube in case it gets over the brake surface!
Is this something i,ll have to live with running a sprocket/brake or can anyone reccomend a chain that won,t rust without lube?

Get used to it!
What you are looking at is surface rust and can be easily cleaned off with a rag and some wd-40 or other liquid.

I guess you'll have to get used to the rusting and occasional cleaning.

There are chrome plated chains available and I think some oxide coated chains also but eventually they will all start to have some rust appearing.

What about lubing it with chain wax?? The chain wax does not sling after it dries
