wondering if this is big enough to handle a 530 (motorcycle) chain...

Looks identical to this one for $7, also free shipping

Trying to decide if a clean chain is important. I never cleaned a chain before and didn't seem to have any problems.

It reduces wear on the chain/drivetrain components, extending the life of the parts. You can clean the chain by hand, on or off the bike, but it's a bit messy and a pain to get completely clean. I usually just grab a rag, put some degreaser/cleaner on it, and hold the rag to the chain as I run it. Then again, my family's bikes are all low-milage or indoor use only, so it's not a huge deal for me.

Thanks. Just ordered one from there and a couple other little $2.xx items that I needed.

These things are very cheaply made and tend to break in one use (at least some portion of the plastic tends to crack). Don't expect much out of this.

I bought one of these from DX a few years ago. I ride my bike to work almost every day in the spring/summer/fall. It is about 8 miles round trip.

The cleaner device is fairly cheap, but I have not had any problem after about 3-4 uses. To use it, I add water and some degreaser and run the chain through it for about one minute. After that, I rinse it and add a chain lubricant. It removes all of the gunk that builds up from rain and dirt and lots of use. It only takes a few minutes to use and is not too messy.
