yea, I know...search... I did and to no avail...

So, what are the good chain lubes out there??? Thanks Hell, what about the rest of the lubricants too, what does everyone recommend??

also...Is the 4000 mile oil change to early to go to a full synth??? I know in cars its suggested to run standard oil for at least 10k due to the fact that synth works so well it wont let the rings seat... thanks

Maxima chain wax, dosn't sling everywhere and dosn't turn your chain white.


As for the oil I wouldn't think it would hurt I ran full syn. from the second oil change. But don't hold me to that it's just my :twocents

Motul. Best stuff on the market. It's not as tidy as Chain Wax, but it does a better job getting in the nooks and crannies. You won't find many racers using Chain Wax.;)

I assume picking a chain lube will be like figuring out which tires suite you best. Everybody uses something that suites them. I use Bel Ray Chain Lube and have for many years. It works well and has minimal fling.

I use ELF, penetrates and sticks, no skanky white chain look, smells exotic.
If the real truth were told, any modern chain lube will probably work fine as long as it is applied properly (hot chain, along side plates, excess wiped off) and the chain is adjusted correctly.

Silkolene! Absolutely the best I have ever used. Apply to a clean warm chain, and it never flings anywhere. Goes on absolutely clear.

you can try Motul wash and wax. Its for cleaning the fairing, windscreens, helmets and that kind of good stuff, but Todd found it works well on chains as well:woot:

I was using Repsol chain lube, but it flings it up onto my Sato's. So I put on a chainguard (thanks Tai) and now I use Bellray(sp) lube, works good but I don't really like the white...

WD40 before and after every ride. I have been known to forget the after part from time to time.

I use the Bellray lube and they make a clear now so no more white crap and it doesn't fly all over the place. Best stuff on the market IMO.

I was using Silkolene, then put a Pyramid rear hugger on and decided it looked better without the chainguard. Immediately noticed sling onto undertail. Read an old post from Mr.CE Howard about Maxima chain wax, been using it ever since. Also got the idea to purchase a Baxley Chock from Mr. Howard as well.


Thanks CEH.

Maxima and Motul sprays. The best has been RK O-ring lube non-aersol. The RK does take a real investement in time to get on right.

Just about any kind of lube is going to be better than no lube.
