Holding the WD40 soaked rag on top of the chain near the sprocket and rotating the tire backwards. Don't ask why I thought this would be a good idea. The real kicker is that I did almost the exact same thing last week to my other hand while checking the belt tension on my Sportster. Just in case you were wondering, on a Harley with its belt and pulley you get more of a crushing action than the tearing you'll experience on a chain driven bike. Again, don't ask what I was thinking. :eek: Maybe I should leave the beers till after I finish the service.

Also been there, done that. The only difference is I was lucky enough to catch 3 fingers and they went half way around the rear sprocket before I realized what I did. It is amazing how fast you can make it go back the other way without even thinking about it. It looked like a murder scene in the garage that night from trying to shake the pain off. I did not notice the large slice across the fingers till the blood went flying.

Oooh. Yuk. I think that beats mine. Except the fact that I repeated the same exercise the week prior on a different bike.

I've seen the aftermath pictures of people doing the same thing.....with the bike on a rear stand, in gear, and running! I will say that the pictures were not very pleasant and there were large chunks of flesh missing. I don't remember completely, but I want to say I've seen pictures of missing fingers over the years, also. I try to block images like that out of my mind.

I knew an ex drummer. We met when he was a drummer. He added the ex by slicing his thumb from his hand when pulling just such a stunt. I remember him everytime I notice my chain being slack, dry or dirty.
