I disagree..... nothing to me says grabbing a moving chain at ANY speed and ANY tightness is a good idea.
There are plenty of ways to clean a chain, thoroughly, that do not involve the engine running, let alone the chain moving.
That's what I keep thinking. That motor has enough power to propel that bike at highway speeds (and rider, too). I'm guessing that the RPMs and such are pretty powerful with that chain, and I'm not going anywhere near that.
