I've heard of using everything from soap & water, to your most expensive chain care products being used to clean a chain, but I found this to be quite interesting though I'm hesitant to use the method.
I'm hesitant because of the acidic properties of a pickle. Surely it can't be good for O/X rings, or can it? (I'm hanging this out there for someone to answer, because I never got to polymers in my chemistry classes)
if you love your motorcycle, set it free.. if it comes back and hits you.. you highsided
Yep, dilute it about 1/2 with water and use a spray bottle, clean with a soft brush or rag. If your chain is really nasty with years of caked on crud you may have to use something more serious, but I've found that Simple Green works great for regular chain cleanings. No guilt as you hose it off into your driveway either!
