How often does the chain need lubricating

Touch your chain, feel it, does it feel super hot, does it feel sandy, does it make alot of noise, is it loose?
Riding conditions is the main factor for your chain.
Do you travel down alot of dirt roads? the worse the conditions the more frequent lubrication is required.
If your chain gets alot of dirt on it then you'll need to wash that off and then lubricate it.
A well maintained chain will also save on your sprokets.
I check mine once a week, sometimes its good and sometimes its dirty and needs washed and lubricated.
I use chain lube that doesn't fly off and get all over my bike. In a pinch any lube will due.

How often should i oil the drive chain and clean it ? When must it be replaced?

Use commercially available chain lubricant to keep the drive chain from ever running dry. Usually it will be necessary to lube the chain every 200 to 500 miles, depending on how hard your bike is ridden and the conditions it is operated under. Chain lubes available at your local motorcycle shop are far superior to using any other type of lubricant. They are formulated to not fly off and make a mess of your rear wheel, clothing, etc.

If given decent care, you can expect your drive chain to last 10,000 to 20,000 miles. Lubrication and proper adjustment are the keys to success. Ordinary cleaning is not necessary - except for off road bikes.

It is time to replace the chain when you can lift the chain from the sprocket and expose anything more than about 1/2 the length of any tooth on the sprocket.

Dear Pravin,

Always check for the oil level before you start for the first time during the day. If you can just shake the bike you'll know how thick or light the oil is. The more lighter, you'll have to change faster. Also check for color. Oil can be maroon/red/dark green/etc. depending on brand. If its really black, change it fast. Dont do top ups. Better drain the entire oil and fill fresh oil.

The oil also acts as a lubricant to the gearbox. If you feel gear shifting is becoming too slippery or too tough, check for the viscousity, as said earlier. Slipping gear shift can also be due to a loose chain. So check for that too.

By the time you finish 1500 kms or 2000kms, its better to change the oil.

It is better to use Castrol Power1 for Pulsar. It prevents overheating and also keeps the engine and gearbox smooth. It also maintains viscousity at high temperatures for better lubrication.

My experience:

I used to put servo and every 900-1000 kms i had to change oil. Now with Castrol, I change only between 1500-2000kms. I'm getting mileage between 50 and 55kms for a litre of unleaded petrol.

Hope this helps in solving your problem.

Have a nice time riding pulsar.

Always wear helmet and drive safely.

Yes All motorcycle chains currently being manufactured use Buna-N (Nitrile) rubber for their o-rings and x-rings and all these manufacturers recommend kerosene as a cleaner. Here's the formulation of WD-40: 80% Stoddard Solvent (that is similar to kerosene) 20% light lubricating oil and a bit of fragrance. Here's the compatibility of Stoddard Solvent with rubbers and plastics: Good Compatibility (OK for both static and dynamic seals) Buna-N (Nitrile) Chemraz Epichlorohydrin Fluorocarbon Fluorosilicone Kalrez Nitrile, hydrogenated Polyacrylate Teflon, virgin Mixed Compatibility (OK for static seals, but not for dynamic seals) Neoprene Vamac Fair Compatibility (OK for some static seals) Polysulfide Polyurethane, millable Poor Compatibility Butyl Ethylene-Propylene Hypalon Natural rubber Silicone Styrene Butadiene Consequently, WD-40 is safe and effective as a chain cleaner and corrosion inhibitor. Link: If you clean with a soft brush and WD-40, and plan to follow-up with a chain lube, you can reduce chain lube sling-off if you first remove the oil residue that WD-40 leaves. This residue seems to prevent some chain lube formulations from sticking well to the chain.,,,

The answer depends on whether external chain lubrication is beneficial for a chain with internal grease sealed with o-rings and perhaps how often you clean your chain. One school-of-thought believes that no additional lubrication is needed. The other believes that the sprocket and chain surfaces that do not have permanent grease also need to be lubricated. The chain manufacturers tell us that also lubricating the chain and sprocket surfaces will extend the life of these components. But a chain lube will sling-off unless designed to stick to the chain so it needs to stay tacky. Consequently it will also attract grit and road debris that, in turn, will accelerate wear faster than if you just have a clean unlubricated chain. Chain lube will also reduce power losses due to friction and shed water that leads to rust (and wear). If you live in a wet climate, you should probably use chain lube to prevent rust. A chain newly-cleaned with WD-40 will have a coat of light oil that will effectively displace water and reduce surface corrosion of the links. It's a low viscosity oil so any excess will sling off easily, but will attract very little grit - much less that any chain lube - and it will have the same rolling friction as a number of chain lubes on the market. WD-40, used as a one-step cleaner and lubricant is sufficient. Because it is a light oil, some fling-off will occur, so any excess should be wiped-off. USED REGULARLY, it provides good corrosion protection, low (but not the lowest) rolling resistance, and attracts less road grit than waxy chain lubes. So your chain stays very clean. If you aren't inclined to clean and lube your chain regularly, or often ride in wet conditions that promote corrosion, there are chain lubes on the market that are designed to stick to your chain to resist fling-off and provide longer-lasting corrosion protection. Some remain tacky and attract grit, some stay slippery to the touch. All of them need to cleaned off and renewed at some point. If you’ve decided to use chain lube after cleaning your chain, then it’s best to use straight kerosene as your cleaner because the light oil that WD-40 contains will make it difficult for the chain lube to stay attached without flinging-off.,,,
