      I want to explain myself
      1- this advice is like discovering hot water
      2-needs to be improved, if you unscrew the nut or the bolt and pull weight on it you can ruin the fork thread
      3- a good way to ruin your axel bolt, if it’s struck.
      4- that’s ok if you ride at 20kmh, otherwise you will lose your hat
      5-and you’ll have a broken camera mount. Better use your teeth if you want to impress someone. Anyway, never drink and drive
      6- you won’t lose your hat here, just your fingers.
      7- wow it can fit 3 screws! Also they will never fell if you it the bike, right?
      8-just 😂😂😂😂😂
      9- imho, this is a good advice. Just don’t do that with your bike running to spin the chain.

    That chain hack is fucking terrible. For one, spray the inside of the chain instead of the outside. Secondly, don't run the bike on the stand, especially when not holding the controls. Quite apart from the whole 'if it falls off the stands it'll do one down your driveway' thing, a girl I used to follow on twitter who was a learner rider did that, got her thumb caught between chain and sprocket and had the digit chewed up so badly some of it was amputated. Way to give dangerous advice there, champ

    CLEAN YOUR CHAIN, Fasten to old tooth brushes bristle to bristle with elastic bands, dip them in cleaner and pull them apart to put them onto the chain and turn the back wheel. Rinse brushes as necessary. Dave

    Using nut to open axel doesn't provide much grip and can slip. Instead you can use long bolt, use two nuts in the end to lock them together for applying torque.

    Good vid with some nice shots however some "life hacks" are poorly researched and some of them feel like fillers just to get that number 10.
    overall everything is fine but the life hack with a kerosine will help make your chain nice and shiny and it won't damage O-rings: however, it will get under the o_ring and will remove the lubrication inside the O-ring which can cause shorter life span of the chain and in some cases it might damage it.
    Also when it comes to using 1st gear to spin the rear wheel, you should have mentioned that spraing is fine but don't try to use a rag or a piece of cloth to remove the excess of a lube, it can stuck under the rear sprocket while your hand is still holding onto it, it happens very quickly and 1st gear power will be enough to chew through your fingers. apart from that, great work on this vid

    Um don’t use your helmet as a shopping cart, security will definitely have a problem with that, ok spools offer strength to the bolt that is beyond the swing arm mount, your hat trick, doesn’t work if you have regular back riders, a beer bottle opener promotes driving while intoxicated, don’t lube your chain with your bike in gear running on a paddock stand, many fingers have been lost to this setup and i noticed you didn’t even have a rear lower chain guard, the paraffin is a good hack, chain wax is so much better than some no fling chain lubes out there, also the cam hack for bike owner selfies is a legit hack... a few of the hacks you listed were unnecessarily risky, leave the risks for speed and handling

    Hilarious video, had me giggling like a school girl! As a mechanic your hacks were something that I assumed everyone knew. But sadly this is not the case. Don't fully agree with your chain cleaning, but at least you said a disclaimer. So I just wanted to add a tiny bit of safety advise. Please make sure that the bolt you use is a "Hardened steel bolt" of at least Grade 8/Grade G. Not just any old bolt that will fit into the hole. This will be much safer lifting your bike and keeping it secure and safe on your swing arm stand. Because as you said, we all have a love affair with our motorcycle and I'm sure we'll do anything to protect it!

  • Dorian Almonte

    Never clean or lubricate chain with the bike running. Even experienced riders lose fingers this way. Grab a cold beverage of your choice and take your time cleaning it. Rest assured your fingers will be attached to your hand when your finished.

    Good advice with the bike stand and first gear to lube the chain single handedly but the hat trick along with the helmet basket trick are barley more than observations. I like half the advice, dislike the simple observations. You killed it with video (picture) quality though.

    wd-40 is kerosene based and I've used it and an old tooth brush to clean my o-ring chain annually. the chain is 33 years old, in spec and the bike has well over 110 hp....
    also have lubed it on it's center stand for 30 years...i'm not an idiot. pay attention at all times...
    laying your helmet on the ground to take the 'hero shot?....mini tripods are a couple bucks, helmets are triple digits....
    opening a beer off your bike and spewing that swill all over it is disrespectful...the motorcycle should be in lock-down if you are a boozer.

  • JaeSchmidt
    JaeSchmidt 15 days ago

    Guys and gals, it is true that you should avoid having your bike run in first gear line that while lubing the chain as that is quite dangerous. What you CAN safely do however, is start the engine (with the rear wheel on a paddock stand), put it in first gear and fix the clutch to the bar with something like strong duct tape. This way the engine's torque will cause the wheel to slowly rotate without the danger of pulling your hand in!

  • Mookie Conster glorious leader of flipflopistan

    These are fuckin shit!!!
    Except for the helmet as a basket which every biker works out after literally one week of owning a bike!
    What a waste of time!

    Cap on the back seat just screams twat.

    Any guy that has a problem with 'helmet hair' has no business riding a motorcycle, for those that do here's another hack. There's just enough room under the rear seat on an 05 R1 to pop a couple of extra tampons under, just in case yours falls out when you see the state of your hair.

    Don't clean your bike chain with kerosine, when you plan on using a dry lube or other non oil based lubes.
    Also make sure your manual recommends cleaning with kerosine or petroleum.
    While most modern O and X-rings are fine with kerosine, you'd better be safe than sorry.

    Do not use kerosene if you store your bike in a garage. It stinks to holy F and back for a month after you use it. It really cleans your chain well, but it's not worth the stinky stink.

    Ádám Szabó 20 days ago

    I think this rider is really amateur.
    At first: do not use the helmet as a basket because it will be dirty sooner.
    Second: When you lubricate the chain you must spray to the inside of the chain, not the outside.
    At least: Never, and say it again, NEVER lubricate the chain with working engine and spinning rear wheel. It is really dangereous. My friend lost his finger because he did it.
