Undeniably waste of time or a real chore, depending on the equipment available and your motivation, cleaning, greasing and if necessary retensioning your chain has yet been an essential step before hitting the road. But it may be over soon. BMW has just presented a chain that does not require any maintenance: the M Endurance.
We know that at BMW Motorrad we like to be at the forefront of innovation. This time around, the German brand could please all those for whom the maintenance of the chain is more a chore than a communion with the machine.
The M Endurance is thus made to be maintenance free. No more toothbrush cleaning, spray lubrication that repaints the garage floor, the new chain does without maintenance, lubrication and tension. How does she do that? Thanks to a new material, amorphous tetrahedral carbon (ta-C), otherwise known as industrial diamond.
Arranged between the axles and the X-Ring, this material produces almost no friction and even acts as a lubricant.
"Thanks to excellent dry lubricating properties and the elimination of wear, the tetrahedral rollers coated with amorphous carbon in the M Endurance chain provide maintenance comfort equivalent to that of a motorcycle with cardan shaft transmission. . This includes all the cleaning work that is unavoidable with a conventional chain due to lubricant splash. As a result, the M Endurance chain also offers maximum respect for the environment " precise BMW.
The maintenance-free M Endurance chain is already available as an option on the S1000RR and S1000XR and should soon arrive on the brand's other models.
