Rusty O-ring chain...

Recommended Posts

OK, I picked up some brand of chain that is rusting so fast, I can't stop it. What can I use to clean and treat it that will not hurt the O-rings. I've used a couple different brands of chain lube, but the rust just piles on.

BTW, my old DID gold non o-ring chain did not rust, think this one is EK. Won't be buying this brand again 🙂

I always just use WD-40 on my o-ring chain and the reason for the DID gold chain not rusting is because it's is gold plated. You can buy a gold plated o-ring chain. If you need to clean the chain use kerosene and a wire brush then lube it. After everytime you clean your bike use compressed air and blow off the chain then lube it. It will never rust doing this.
