V-Strom Service & Maintenance Questions/Discussion
OEM chain. 0-27,800 miles
All it ever saw for cleaning and lube was WD40.
At 17K miles I replaced the front sprocket with an identical 15T from suzuki.
At about 25K miles, the chain was getting noisy and continued to get worse untill I replaced it.
There were no kinks, no signs of rust.
