The Best Chain Lube ?

13 posts in this topic

Bel-Ray Superlube, the best without doubt. Spray it on at least 30 minutes before you ride and it sets up a nice film. Does not attract dirt or fling off. Best I've used yet

do any of you guys take your chain off and soak it in oil? (I use the oil left over from oil changes) this method has always worked great for me and I only really adjust my chain every 2-3 months...sometimes i get carried away and let it soak for 3-5 days! I use PJ1 lube works good and is only 5.95 a can and it is a BIG can! It works just as good as the others except it is cheap!

I use Bel Ray and it doesn't seem to attract much dirt.

Try Bel-Ray Super Clean Chain Lube. It's claim is that it has an outer protective coating that will not attract dirt, sand or grit and is suitable for o-ring chains. I'm not a Bel-Ray salesman. I use it with good results. Just my opinion.

I'm currently running an o ring chain and i'm using maxima chain wax, i don't like it.

about a 2 years ago DIRTRIDER MAG. actually did a test on chain lubes. for o-ring chains the winner was, believe it or not, was WD-40! they specifically said stay away from chain lubes. they damage the o-rings. every since, i spray my chain before i ride or race, that is all i do. i have raced 11 enduros and harescrambles, plus ride 40 to 50 miles every weekend, the chain on my yz426 is just over a year old and looks nearly new. i will never buy chain lubes again!

I've been using Maxima lately too. It sucks. I use the kind that comes in the spray can, you said you use a "wax." I don't know if that's the same thing or not. Anyways, using Maxima I often have 1/2 can left of lube but the pressure gets weaker and weaker until it won't even spray the lube anymore. What a waste!

EVERYONE, don't use Maxima unless you for some reason have had good luck with it or something.

WD-40 is a degreaser and removes the lube from the chain...which is not a good idea! I use to use WD40 about 4 yrs ago and always wondered why my chain wore out soooo quick and once I started using chain lube, I stopped buying chains, because they dont stretch anymore! Hope this helps! The makers of WD40 also make a lubricant I forgot what it is called but I have a can in my garage and it works great for chains!

I use a product called White Lightening that I also use on my mountain bike. It is a dry lube that goes on wet and leaves a wax film on the chain. I always put it on the night before and lube every link. It will last a couple of rides. I swear by the stuff in dry conditions. I am in Az so I know it works well in dust. I don't think it works well in wet though. I know they also make a product called Race Day, you can put it on the day of your ride, but it attracts a little dust.
