It’s off the road anyway but yeah think your right. Safe is always best policy. It’s like riding. “If your not sure don’t do it“ cheers kiwicol :cheers:

I'd use it. My chain & sprockets have been a lot dirtier than that in winter & then done thousands of miles more the next summer.

Test the chain before condemning it.

KAK it definitely deserves some cleaning and inspection. Don't condemn it due to the dirt build up. It may have actually protected itself.  :stir: :stir: :stir:

I changed my front Angel GT to a new one after 19 600 km (12 200 miles).

Started to rebuild a spare set of front forks for the Bandit. Couple of pits in one's on now and up for MOT.
Spare one's have good chrome but leak on one leg thus the rebuild.
There are some butchers out there.
