If its proper fooked Dude will have that as a spare,, or even fit it straight on, coz the chances of it being better than the 1 on is pretty high.

After ew wash yur bike. Start it up to dry the bike off. Select first and let the back wheel spin to shake out water from chain. Then spray with wd40 which will disperse the water. If you spray the chain with chain lube ew can trap water under em roller thingies. Very Happy

Well that's what do anyway. And what the fuck do I know...

Problem with wd40 it contains thinners and not good for o rings. Something oil based is better for cleaning but again what do I know Very Happy

That's what we had to do 20 years ago but with the o ring chains it should stay sealed ok.
As said a water repelant and a Good  spray should do the trick.
