Did you replace the sprockets when you replaced your chain the second time?falcon93 wrote:I'm a little late to this discussion, but I for one will not ever buy another bike with a chain. I am already on my second chain. First one wore out at 6,000 miles and that was with following the Owner's manual recommendations of oiling every 200 miles and cleaning every 500 miles. The second chain is almost 1/2 worn out with another 2000 miles following the same procedures. After I'm done with my current bike, I'm done with chains. I hate them. Just my personal oppinion.
6,000 miles is absurdly low mileage for a chain. I get 20,000 miles out of mine and getting 50,000 miles out of a chain and sprocket set with a Scottoiler is very common.
