Thank you for the replies. The flaking paint chips are very brittle. There is lead paint in some parts of my house, which I have just painted over. I'm not surprised to hear that moisture is probably lifting up the paint. So far this summer, the hu

the best thing to do is to change it early in life, after break in; to get the wear metals out. I believe a study was done by Amsoil to support that. after that, I suppose I would change every 100k. I believe my Jeeps and Dodge call for 12-15k ch

a friend of mine recently bought a G4 Plus which is an amazing phone for the price point. Lot's of features, very nice IPS display. I like how Motorola uses a pure stock Android. And Motorola used to be known for high audio (voice) quality.

If it's an O-ring chain, and it should be, you maybe could tear up the O-rings with a wire brush. I use a nylon brush on my VFR800 chain along with Gunk Engine Brite. And I have Mobil 1 Turbo Diesel Truck 5W-40 in the crankcase. The bike shifts fine.

I've had nothing but bad luck with Motorola phones. Serious lack of features both hardware and software, and they really love to lock down their phones to make them hard/impossible to root and install better software.
