Hi. I would only use a good motorbike chain lube for your motorbike as a bicycle chain oil may well be to thin and will increase chain ware. As for oil, check in your service book or manual. If you do not have one ask at you local motorbike shop and they will tell you whitch oil you nead. Regards Tony.

Should we oil the chain?

Yes, get a very light chain lube. Apply to the chain, pedal to ensure that chan and gears get coated evenly, and wipe off excess with a paper towel or rag.

Chain lube

after each ride you take, a Specially after a wet one.
clean the bike with water hose and brushes and then after it dries - lube the chain with white grease. or any other soft bicycle grease

Do i need to oil my bike?

"Lubricate". With all the synthetic specilazed lubes out there oil is not really used anymore.

Emphatically, YES. Mainly the chain.

Get on a search engine and enter "lubricate bike" or modify it accordingly for areas of interest.

What kind of maintenance should i do to my 1989 cbr 600 f to keep it in tip top running condition

  • Change gearbox oil every 3000 miles. Change oil filter every 6000 miles. Use 10w40 motor oil. NEVER use synthetic lubricants as they can mess up the clutch.
  • Oil the chain every two weeks. Lube the control cables every oil filter change.
  • Keep the gas tank full in the cold months. This lessens internal tank rusting due to condensation in the tank. Drain the carbs when the bike will sit over the winter unless you plan on starting the bike every two weeks and letting it run for 15 minutes each time.
  • Be sure the gas valve is turned off when the bike is not in use.
  • Get a 2 amp trickle charger and charge the battery once a week for 4 hours in the winter. Be sure to keep enough water in the battery to cover the top of the plates in each cell. Know that batteries only last two years or so.
  • Check the chain tension once a month during the summer riding season.
  • Please rate my answer. Thanks.

What kind of oil should i use for a 1999 honda cbr 600 f4

10w-40SJ Honda Motorcycle oil only.
Would appreciate a rating thanks! Change your oil more frequently if you ride the bike hard or especially if you ride the track like i do...i change my oil before and after a race!! and i"ve put 30k "extremely" hard miles on this engine and still performs well for a bike with 50k on the odometer! my bike is the very first 87 CBRF1 Hurricane.. i also have an 88 with only 16k on the odometer! Hondas are bullet proof, but the oil is the Key because everytime you miss-shift and grind a gear the same gear oil is used to lube the top half of the engine.

I need an owners manual for the land rider bike. bike takes to long to shift up or down, sometimes not at all. thank you, frank

most bicycle owners manuals do not explain bicycle mechanics and are rarely of any use other than basic bicycle safety. You shifting issue is not specific to your brand of bicycle anyway, as it is simply a mechanical issue. Probably a good cleaning of the drivetrain and re-lube would make the bike shift better. Use a degreaser and stiff brush and water and clean up the chain and the chain rings and the gears or cogs on the back hub. Follow up with a good chain lube.

I'm cleaning my MTB chain. I removed it from the front chain guard by taking out a screw. Now, it's all kinked up, and I can 't get them out.

a bicycle chain cannot be removed from the bike without breaking the chain using a special chain break tool or if the chain has a special link called a quick link that snaps apart. However, to clean a chain it does not need to be removed from the bike. Some degreaser, a stiff brush and some water as all that needed to clean the chain, then follow the cleaning with some good bicycle chain lube.

Seat adjustment - rusty chain

The lube you want is bicycle chain oil. Nothing else is acceptable. Any brand is fine, only make sure you use a bicycle-specific chain oil. Only lubricate the chain, never the derailleurs. And it is best to scrub your chain prior to lubing by using a good chain brush and a degreaser.
The seat is lowered by either a quick-release collar or a standard screw-type collar. The former reuires no tools, but the latter will require an allen wrench. If you need to use a tool to do it, bicycles are 99.9% metric. When adjusting, you want to be comfortable, but you also want to maximize pedaling power by adjusting the seat to a height that puts you where the end of your down-stroke ends where your leg is only slightly bent.

i hope this helps
