    Saw that. It can only be 0 maintenance if it doesn’t rust!

    Probably needs to be replaced every 10,000 miles and costs £800 from BMW and you need to buy proprietary tools to fit it which cost another £600 ;)

    So I take it they actually mean no maintenance in respect of lubing and not in respect of tension etc.

    Dam skippy Wozza! I always get these chains for every one of my bikes.
    My Blade got the Gold service wash yesterday, as we had torrential rain down here yesterday.

    But if we don’t need to do any maintenance, how the hell will we get out the house in the winter months?!

    They should be fitted on to Suzukis to save all the chain lube crud being flung all over the place !
