NO.
NO NO NO NO NO.

Never, EVER turn the engine on with the bike on a paddock stand.
Especially for the purpose of waxing!!!

You know how many bikes have fallen off the stand?
Or how many fingers have been lost?

If you're stupid enough to put your fingers near the sprockets then that's you're fault. But if you do this seasonable then there's no problems

not all people are so smart like you DW. sometimes we need to think in riders that never change anything in a motorcycle. so the correct is put advertising to the risk involved. this is not a bad thing. is just complement your great info with what kind of risk the rider deal in this maintenance.

I dont think it's about being smart. I think it's more about common-sense.

If you do this use you're common-scene. Keep fingers well away or this could happen to you.

The way i clean my chain is to take off all side cowling so you can remove the front sprocket cover. Then get a long handled tooth brush(or chain brush)& a small spray bottle with paraffin in it.... turn on engine and select first gear. Spray paraffin on to chain and give it a really good scrub while back wheel is rotating. Spray again with paraffin and turn off engine and take key out. Wipe over chain with a cloth. Go out on bike to warm chain up. re-put on paddock stand. then start bike up and backs wheels rotating then spray chain wax in the middle section of the chain where the side stand is. my wax has a long straw. so fingers are no where near chain. Leave for a couple of mins running so the wax get's into all the nooks of the links. turn off bike and reassemble the panels... Job done..... Easy.
