Kettenmax Premium Chain
Cleaning & Lube Device
Manufacturer details: Kettenmax-Premium
Chain bucket for motorcycle
It was just for private use on his own motorcycle that Josef Pesl began working on designing a cleaning system for drive chains. But because all his friends and acquaintances suddenly wanted to own such a handy piece of kit for themselves, he soon began to mass produce them. The Kettenmax is now patented globally and has a first class reputation - not only in Europe - as the clean solution for those who want to preserve the performance of their chains.

Advantages of a chain cared for with Kettenmax *Premium*:
- Chain and sprockets are perfectly cleaned, lubricated and protected against rust.
- Extends service life by 200-300%, which saves you money.
- Much lower maintenance. A chain maintained with Kettenmax stretches 30% less, which means lots more miles before the tension needs adjusting.
- More power to the rear wheel. Chain friction is a cause of power loss between engine and tyre. Chain care with Kettenmax considerably reduces friction, which means more horsepower is transmitted to the rear wheel.
- Lubricant is not flung off onto the rear tyre, firstly, because it is sprayed on in small, measured amounts and, secondly, because of the precise application and distribution. Tested on the race track
- No lubricant is sprayed onto frame or rim. The lubricant spray is applied direct to the inner side of the chain by the Kettenmax system.
- Very economical use of cleaner and lubricant because they only go where they are needed, with no waste. This saves you money and is good for the environment.
- The reward for Kettenmax care is exact gear-shifting with minimum effort.
- The chain runs smoothly, and gear shifting is more responsive. Chain care with Kettenmax prevents chain slap, clanking and squeal, resulting in a quietly purring chain and greater safety. The most common cause of a broken chain is inadequate care. Increased friction and heat lead to premature wear and weaken the chain. Chain care with Kettenmax effectively prevents this, and therefore greatly helps improve safety.

Test verdict from "Motorradfahrer" magazine:
- Chain cleaning may not be absolutely essential, but regular lubrication certainly is. The Kettenmax does both of these jobs really well, in both ecological and economical terms..."
