Nasty smell while cleaning chain #stankchain

Recommended Posts

After giving my Niken GT a bath I went  to lube my chain. Cleaned off my chain with paper towels and nitrile gloves since I was using 75w90 weight Redline gear oil for lubrication. While I was cleaning off the dirty  chain a horrific smell came off the chain. None of my other chain driven motorcycles smelled like that when cleaning. Is this normal if you're chain hasn't been cleaned in 800 miles on a new bike? The smell was so putrid I almost gagged. Smelled like something died on the chain.
