i use bel ray super clean chain lube. i tried amsoil heavy duty metal protector and it worked alright as well, but im finding that bel ray stays on longer and it dries thicker. i used to just use tranny oil or stuff like that, but i'd have to oil it all the time and it slings off. if you spray the bel ray and amsoil stuff on a table top and touch it, it's real thin. then wait 15 minutes and its hard and waxy. it's like the stuff that comes on a renthal chain when you buy it and it stays on forever.
i also use bel ray filter oil and i'm happy with it, but i've never tried anything else.
