It is recommended to oil the chain every 600 miles.
I do it more often and i found out that the oil/grease ends up behind the plastic cover on the front sprocket.
When i removed the plastic cover the build up of dirt/grease/sand/leaves was so thick that the chain run trough it and never stayed clean.
A good practice is to remove the 3 screws and the plastic cover and clean out the dirt every time you oil and clean the chain, especially if you go off-road a lot.
Thanx for creating this forum.
Stay safe!

Thanks for the heads up @powerwagon4me and welcome to the forum! How often do you take the Pan America off road compared to on road?

Plus 1!☝

I would also like to know, how them bottle holders are fastened/connected to the panniers? I like! I.e did you haveta drill holes and use screws/bolts or ???.
Thanks.
Purchased from SW.Motech.US, same company that make our panniers, you have to drill four 5,5 mm holes and deburr them, they rattle a bit at speed, i had to put gorilla duck tape on the mating side, that made them tight and they do not move around.

I just got my PAS a week ago this past Saturday. Loving it. I haven't had a bike with a chain since my first bike back in 1978. What is a good cleaning solution and chain lube?
