The new Clean Bob from Sdoc100 is a simple-to-use splash guard that prevents chain lube from soiling the tyre, wheel rim and/or swing arm when spraying the chain.
Until now, most riders have resorted to placing a piece of card behind the chain when applying lube, to protect the rear wheel and surrounding area from excess spray. This usually makes the application time-consuming, messy and awkward.
The Clean Bob catches excess spray that misses the chain. It is designed to fit onto the valve plate on top of most aerosol cans with a diameter of 57 mm.
It also leaves one hand free to rotate the rear wheel while spraying the chain (lube should only be applied with the engine off and the bike in neutral).
Once the Clean Bob is attached to the can, 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 chain spray on the inside of the chain, rotating the rear wheel until every link has been sprayed.
After use, the Clean Bob can be wiped clean or rinsed with SDoc100 Chain Cleaner.

Ventura’s new Adjustable Pack-Rack is the most significant evolution of the popular motorcycle luggage system since its launch 30 years ago.
The updated system still attaches to the bike using L-Brackets that are tailor-made for the make and model. However, the Adjustable Rack replaces the range of Pack Racks required to fit the different width and height of various motorcycle tail units.
The new Rack works using an elbow system, which slots into the L-Brackets and bolts to the rack. The elbows pivot, allowing the Rack to mount forward or back to suit the rider, bike and pack – so it can be carried closer to the machine’s centre of gravity when riding solo, or positioned to give a pillion ample room when two-up.
The range of adjustment provided by the elbow system also means the rack can be fitted to a different motorcycle, no matter what size the tail unit. Simply adjust the elbow bracket to suit the new machine’s L-Brackets, attach and position the Rack-Pack as needed, then enjoy the unique ‘slide on, ride off’ fitment of the Ventura Packs.
Paul Dold, who founded Ventura, says: “The Adjustable Pack-Rack means our customers can use one rack across multiple bikes, and have flexibility when mounting the rack depending on taste and what packs are to be fitted. We believe this new mounting makes the Pack-Rack system the most versatile on the market.”
Ventura’s Bike Pack system combines the best features of soft and hard luggage: a sturdy rack-mounting system designed to hold the load safely and securely, and a range of soft and semi-soft bags – from a 35 litre weekend bag, to a massive 102-litre touring combination – that are lightweight, easy to handle off the bike and can be easily rolled up and stashed away when not in use.
It attaches using existing points on the sub-frame and doesn’t add significant weight or width. The Pack’s unique ‘slide on, ride off’ fitment eliminates the need for straps or bungee cords, so it’s quick and easy to detach and reattach too.
Both Pack and Rack can be removed in seconds, leaving only the discrete L-Brackets behind. The rider then has the option of fitting a pillion Grab Handle or a Sport Rack, designed for transporting small loads.
The new Adjustable Pack Rack retails at £59.00 and is compatible with any machine fitted with L-Brackets.
