I just got through changing my oil and while I was at it I figured I’d remove the front sprocket cover and chain guide since it’s been a while since they’ve seen some cleaning. After getting the chain guide clean, I reinstalled it and couldn’t believe how much difference it made. The rear wheel spins so easy now. It was pretty good before, but I never realized how much drag was being caused by the grime on the chain guide. Anyway, this will now be done on a regular basis, at least with every oil change, if not in between. It only takes a minute or two to remove and clean it. Same with the front sprocket cover. I know some of you guys may do this regularly, but maybe some of you guys have never taken off chain guide before. Clean it up really well and you’ll be surprised what a difference it can make.
