7. 10 tips for motorcycle cleaning and care
1. Good to know

If you want a perfect visual impression and want to preserve the value of your motorcycle, then the regular cleaning and care of the bike and especially of individual, highly stressed parts, such as the chain, is essential.
But it's not just about the look. Badly maintained motorcycles can even become a security risk. For example, if damage from corrosion is overlooked, it can cause motorcycle parts to break. Unkempt chains can tear in extreme cases and lead to serious accidents.

Always pay attention to which surface you work on during the care. On the motorcycle there are many different materials such as:
- painted metal parts (like the tank)
- coated metal parts (like chrome)
- painted plastic parts (like the cladding)
- unpainted plastic parts (such as mudguards, mirrors)

The most common and most intensive soils are:
- Oil contamination in the engine area
- Grease dirt on chain and rear wheel
- Insects, road dust on the whole motorcycle
- Metal abrasion through the chain set and brakes

The variety of materials and dirt variants on the motorcycle place particularly high demands on cleaning and care products. Only products that completely remove various types of dirt and at the same time damage the material in any way can be considered first-class care products.
1.1 The S100 motorcycle cleaning products

The S100 motorcycle cleaners consist of specially developed cleaning components (the so-called surfactants), which infiltrate both oil and grease soiling and detach it from the material. In addition, complexing agents complement the formulas. They "envelop" dirt particles so that they can be rinsed easily with the water jet.
Such cleaning processes take some time. Especially with stubborn dirt. The cleaning product must therefore not run off early from the treated area. The S100 Total Cleaner + was therefore equipped with its super gel formula. Even in vertical places, it stays longer without drying and can fully develop the effect. So even extreme pollution has no chance.
The material itself is not touched. The S100 Total Cleaner + completely dispenses with aggressive ingredients. This optimally protects the surfaces.
1.2 The difference to cheap, acidic or strong alkaline cleaners

Cheap motorcycle cleaners are usually very simple in composition. Here are often highly effective, but absolutely harmful to materials and the environment substances such. Acids used. This creates the impression of a quick cleaning effect. But in reality, the material is attacked. There will be paint damage or staining on metal parts and in some cases, it may even affect the health of the user. Also, weaknesses in the application, such as an uneven spray pattern or a low yield indicate an inferior product.
The S100 cleaning products are adapted to ALL important requirements through continuous research and extensive test series. The focus is on the cleaner itself, but also the choice of the best spray gun, the material of the cleaner bottle or even the quality of folding boxes and labels play a role.
This ensures that the S100 cleaners always meet the highest quality requirements.
2. The correct care of paint surfaces and plastics

Painted metal or plastic parts on the motorcycle are exposed to strongly fluctuating temperatures and weather conditions. Weathering and UV radiation weather them over time. But also the teeth of time are gnawing at matt, unpainted plastics. However, materials that are scratched and weathered may become dull and unsightly, but can be restored to a perfect condition.
2.1 Gloss Veil Removal

Weathered layers of paint scatter the incident light. Our eye perceives it like a veil. By applying a high-quality paint polish, the paint surface is smoothed and the fine, weathered paint layer removed. As a result, the light is no longer scattered and the paint appears again in a rich, deep color.
2.2 Gloss increase

The reflection of light without scattering produces what we call gloss. This light reflection can be greatly increased with the right polish. The paint gets a brilliant shine.
2.3 Scratch removal

Good paint polishes do not cover the scratches in the paint, but remove them. For this purpose the finest abrasives are used. They must be adjusted so that fine scratches are removed permanently, but the paint is not additionally attacked.
2.4 Sealing

In addition to polishing, complete sealing also requires sealing. It acts as an additional protective layer and keeps dirt and fine scratches away from the paint. Due to the optimal coordination between silicone and wax components, one can achieve easy processing and at the same time an ideal long-term effect. The S100 Lacquer and Plastic Polish gives all painted metal and plastic parts a perfect gloss. Scratches and weathered paint coatings are removed. At the same time, the surface is effectively sealed.
2.5 Unpainted plastic parts

Unpainted, smooth and structured plastic parts need special care because they lack the protective lacquer layer. In the absence of care, the plasticizers in the plastic volatilize due to heat, UV rays or chemicals. The result: the plastic becomes brittle and brittle and becomes increasingly visible.

1. The chain cleaning
1.1 Why the chain should be clean

Between chain and pinion, friction is constantly generated while driving, as well as between the chain links. This dissolves fine metal abrasion and the chain inevitably gets dirty. Together with the residues of chain lubricants, sand, road dirt, etc., a stubborn coating on the chain and the pinion. This coating prevents the active ingredients of a chain spray from crawling deeply between the chain links - lubrication becomes impossible. So if you never or rarely clean the chain, the lubrication of the chain becomes increasingly ineffective. Chain grease is exaggerated because the lubricant can no longer crawl between the chain links but remains on the surface. So that it runs optimally, it is not enough to lubricate the chain now and then. A chain is only really well maintained if it is thoroughly cleaned regularly.
1.2 Which one keeps the chain clean

The S100 Chain Cleaner combines optimal creep with perfect adhesion due to its special formulation. The cleaning performance is thus completely unfolded, the stubborn dirt is packed - and automatically, without long scrubbing. The cleaner is also absolutely compatible with materials, it increases the smooth running properties and protects against wear.

2. Protect the chain from wear
2.1 How the chain lives longer

On a motorcycle chain powerful forces act. The constant friction that occurs between the chain and pinion, but also between the individual chain links, is minimized by lubrication with chain sprays. A chain spray does that only if it is applied regularly and sufficiently and has a strong adhesion to the surface. Inadequate lubrication will quickly lead to signs of wear such as elongation of the chain (it hangs and must be re-tensioned) or visible wear on the pinion.

It's worth it to avoid that. Because a regularly maintained chain set has a much higher mileage and does not need to be replaced early. A well-maintained chain contributes to the safety while riding a motorcycle.
2.2 How to protect them

S100 White Chain Spray is almost spin-free for a clean rear wheel rim. Excellent creep capability for longer chain drive life. Longer lubrication intervals. Best corrosion protection, effectively protects against rust. Optimal lubrication properties from -30 ° C to + 110 ° C.

Excellent wash-off resistance (rain rides, motorcycle washes). Contains PTFE. Maintains O / X / Z rings and keeps them supple.

3. Tips for chain care

    Lubricate the motorcycle chain every 500 to 1,000 km.
     Before lubrication, clean the chain at least every 2,000 km, ideally before every lubrication.
     Make sure that you only use cleaners for chain cleaning that guarantee O / X or Z-ring compatibility.
     Spray the chain spray always thinly and evenly and then let it air well - ideal is overnight.
