Chain maintenance, you know the drill, soak the chain, scrub the chain, lube the chain. It's a dirty job but somebody's got to do it. Well the job is a whole lot easier and cleaner- with the Grime Minister Chain Brush. Precision shaped polymer bristles reach deep into the hard-to-get places to ensure your chain is debris free. So brush it down and lube it up we've got some ridin' to do!
Makes chain cleaning a snap
Three-sided bristles allow you to easily attack grime from all sides
The three-sided scrubbing head really reduces the overall work load. Instead of having to scrub all four sides of the chains section individually, you only have to us two positions. Straight forward, to hit the top, left and bottom; then bottom-up, or top-down, to have the top/bottom, left, and right side of the chain. My shoulder was quite fatigued after each portion I did (was laying in a weird position), I couldn't imagine having to do all four sides individually. This brush made my life easier.
PROS: Well priced
BEST USES: Sprocket Scrubbing, Chain Cleaning, Chain Scrubbing, Sprocket Cleaning
Ok I used this brush with a combination of Motorex Chain Clean and Motorex 622 Chainlube. I sprayed the clean on and left for 5 minutes then brushed, sprayed a little more to clean brushed and wiped with a towel for a clean shinny looking chain. The brush worked great and was well worth the [$]
I bought this brush to replace a grunge brush that I had which one of the prongs broke off on second use. On first inspection the build of this brush is much more heavy duty and durable. The grunge brush felt very cheap and fragile plastic. Be sure to use some good chain cleaner with the brush to really get rid of caked on dirt and old grime.
I use this brush on a DR650 that sees some regular off road use. As such, the chain is frequently covered in dirt and grime. This brush does work pretty well at scrubbing some of the surface junk off, but once it gets to the parts with chain lube and grease, the bristles just get gummed up every couple links. Once they gum up, you have to clean them out if you don't want them to bend. Still, it's lightyears ahead of the shop rag method of cleaning, and my chain looks way better now that I'm using this. For the price, it does more than I've expected from it.
