Confession time - I know all about procrastination. As for my chain, I hated the mess and my cleaner and lube did a very poor job. My degreaser got the chain "cleaner", but not "clean." My chain lube worked fine, but sprayed out like white snot and stuck to everything. Nasty stuff. But, after my last couple of rides, the chain really needed some attention.

|Another dirty picture!|
I waited about 10 minutes and hit the chain with compressed air; it looked even better. I sprayed degreaser again, waited, and hit it with the air again. In between shots of air I used up two shop towels wiping off more blackness and gunk. The results were worth the effort, the chain looked brand new again.
I used about half of the can of degreaser on this job. But, my chain was pretty dirty and I sprayed it down three times before I was satisfied that it was clean. Less degreaser and work will be needed next time.

|That chain is clean - not just cleaner|
The Motorex degreaser and Kawi chain lube did a great job on my chain. They cost a bit more than similar products at Walmart, but they are worth it. Better to save a couple of bucks somewhere else, than to have a broken chain in the middle of no where ruin your whole day.
