Motorcycle chains can be divided into: Motorcycle Chain Factory

1. Motorcycle sleeve chain

2. Motorcycle roller chain

3. Trolley sealing ring chain (oil chain, divided into O-ring sealing chain and X-ring sealing chain)

4. Toothed chain (silent chain)

According to the parts used on the motorcycle, motorcycle chains can be divided into two types: chains used inside the engine and chains used outside the engine.

Most of the chains used in motorcycle engines are sleeve chains. The sleeve chain used in the engine can be divided into timing chain or timing chain (cam chain), balance chain and oil pump chain (used in engines with large displacement).

Motorcycle chains used outside the engine are drive chains (or drive chains) used to drive the rear wheels, and most of them use roller chains (chains of individual specifications, such as 219h or 05ma are also used as drive chains). High-quality motorcycle chains include a full range of motorcycle sleeve chains, motorcycle roller chains, motorcycle sealing ring chains and motorcycle toothed chains (silent chains).

Motorcycle O-ring seal chain (oil seal chain) is a high-performance drive chain designed and produced specifically for motorcycle racing and racing. The chain is equipped with a special O-ring seal to seal the lubricant in the chain and isolate dust and dirt. The chain color can be divided into natural shot blasting, golden (copper-plated) and silver (nickel-plated). The copper/nickel-plated motorcycle chain is usually copper-plated or nickel-plated on the inner and outer plates of the chain. All parts can also be plated. Copper or nickel plated.

Oil seal chain:

This chain is filled with a certain amount of grease in the middle of the pin shaft sleeve, which can reduce wear and extend the service life; and due to the sealing effect of the "O" ring, it can prevent mud and sand from entering the hinge pair of the chain.

Correctly adjust the motorcycle chain

1. It is advisable to adjust the tightness of the motorcycle chain in a timely manner to keep the tightness of the motorcycle chain at 15mm~20mm. Check the buffer body bearing frequently and add grease on time. Because the working environment of the bearing is harsh, once it loses lubrication, the damage may be great. Damage will cause the rear sprocket to tilt, in the lighter case, the side of the sprocket chain will be worn, and in the worst case, the chain will easily fall off.

2. When adjusting the chain, in addition to adjusting the scale according to the frame chain adjustment, it is also necessary to observe whether the front and rear chainrings and the chain are in the same straight line. Because if the frame or rear wheel fork is damaged and deformed, if you adjust the chain according to its scale, you will enter a misunderstanding. It is mistaken that the chainring and the chain are in the same straight line. In fact, the straightness has been destroyed, so this inspection is very important. Important (it is best to remove the chain box when adjusting). If a problem is found, it should be corrected immediately to avoid future troubles and ensure nothing is lost.

3. When replacing the chainring, you must pay attention to the replacement of high-quality products with good materials and fine craftsmanship (generally, the accessories of the special maintenance station are more formal), which can extend the service life. Don't buy substandard products for cheap, especially unqualified products with chainrings, which have more eccentricity and out of roundness. Once replaced, you will find that the chain is suddenly tight and loose, and the consequences are unpredictable.

4. Frequently check the matching clearance between the rear wheel fork buffer rubber sleeve and the wheel fork and the wheel fork shaft, because this part requires a strict lateral clearance fit between the rear wheel fork and the frame, and the up and down movement is flexible, only in this way can the rear wheel fork be guaranteed It can be integrated with the frame without affecting the shock absorption effect of the rear shock absorber. The connection between the rear wheel fork and the frame is realized through the wheel fork shaft, and is equipped with a buffer rubber sleeve. Since the quality of the current domestic buffer rubber sleeve is not very stable, it is particularly prone to looseness. Once the joint is loose, the rear wheel will shift under the restraint of the chain when the motorcycle starts or accelerates. The magnitude of the shift depends on the degree of damage to the buffer sleeve. At the same time, the rear wheel of the motorcycle will have an obvious shaking feeling when accelerating and decelerating. This is also one of the important reasons for the damage of the chain gear, so more inspection and attention should be paid.

5. Regularly clean the chain and gear plate, add grease in time, add rain, snow and muddy roads, and strengthen the maintenance of the chain and gear plate, only in this way can extend the life of the chain.
