How to lube your motorcycle chain without the mess

The new Clean Bob from Sdoc100 is a simple splash guard that prevents chain lube from soiling the tyre, wheel rim and/or swing arm when spraying the chain.

Most of us place a piece of card behind the chain when applying lube, to protect the rear wheel and surrounding area from excess spray, but it’s messy and awkward.


The Clean Bob catches excess spray that misses the chain, and fits onto most 57mm diameter aerosol cans. It also leaves one hand free to rotate the rear wheel while spraying (because we know you’re not daft enough to do it with the engine running!).

Once the Clean Bob is attached, turn the nozzle towards the shield, position the Clean Bob behind the chain near to the rear sprocket, and carefully spray a thin layer of lube on the inside of the chain, rotating the rear wheel until every link has been coated.

After use, the Clean Bob can be wiped clean, and costs just £3.99 – visit
