You should periodically clean your electronic components by using a damp cloth to wipe off any dirt and debris. Clean the components with mild soap and water only. Rinse thoroughly with water and allow the components to dry.
Notice: Remove the SRAM batteries and install the battery block into the Transmission before cleaning. Do not clean the components with a power washer. Do not use acidic or grease-dissolving agents. Do not soak or store components in any cleaning product or liquid. Chemical cleaners and solvents can damage plastic components.
Chain, cassette, and chainring cleaning:
We recommend cleaning your chain, cassette, and chainring after frequent use and after riding in muddy, dusty, or other adverse conditions. Maintaining a clean and lubricated system will help extend your drivetrain performance and product component service life. Use only biodegradable cleaners to clean the cassette, chainring, and chain. Rinse thoroughly with water and allow the parts to dry, then lubricate the chain with chain lubricant. Wipe off excess lube.
