Ok, so I know this is always one of those items people all worked up over, (like regular or syn oil) but what is a good chain lube to use?

I have heard people say no way to WD-40 (bad for o-rings), but a work buddy of mine has used it for 19 years on many bikes and gets plenty of miles out of his chains he says.

I ask because the stuff I bought last year was sort of tacky/foamy/whitish when applied and made the chain look like a**. I figured WD-40 is a bit more clean to apply and wipe off.

Let the debate begin! :ears:

That's what I use now. Goes on easy, stays put, no mess, and smells like coconut. Seriously.

I'll have to try the DuPont. I currently use Maxima Chain Guard which works pretty well and doesn't gunk anything up. Just make sure not to use PJ1. It's stays on great but also gunks up the whole left side of the swingarm and acts like superglue to any road grime that gets on it. It was a PITA to clean off, then I switched to the Maxima and it works great.

I bought a can of that crap recently only to find that it leaked out of the can all over my shelf. I had to throw it away and then clean up the mess. :angry1:

Currently 10W40. I think dino juice does a better job fighting corrosion and it's easy to clean.

chain lube prefrence has been beaten to death thread after thread, but I'll still contribute here.

I run the DuPont stuff- cheap, easy to get, easy to apply, stays put, lasts long (never looked at chain and thought it looked un-lubed), and it doesn't attract dirt & grime since it dries.

If I didn't have the DuPont I'd 100% be running the Bel-Ray Super-clean. The Super-clean is alot like the DuPont as in they both do not attract grime and the lube does not fling off. I bought some regular Bel-ray on accident last year and that stuff flung all over everything, talk about a waste of $7. My wife was not pleased with chain-lube on her jeans.

+1 : Best stuff since button up boots. Bought it at the local Lowes.

Just rub some bacon on the chain every other Saturday and it will last for 25,000 miles easily.

Thanks for all the info everyone, I figured it had been beaten to death before, but wanted some fresh info. I might try the Dupont lube this spring.

The lube I used was mentioned here, the bel-ray super clean. I thought it seemed very white and pastey when applied(chain looked like crap). That is why I wasnt sure about using it again this season.

Thanks again folks, see you out there soon!!!!!!
