What lube do you use? - August 21, 2008, 08:26 PM

KY
Astroglide
Anal Eze
WD-40

Now that I got those out of the way...


I did my searching first and found this from 2003, but I'm sure lube technology had improved.

Chain Lubeage

Any particular brand ya'll recommend? I heard PJ1 is good, but very messy.

yea pj1 is nasty and still flys off the chain , i've had the best results with chain wax , any lube is going to come off the chain a little . Then i use 6 in 1 lube to clean the chain or just wd 40 if thats all i have laying around.

Clean it with WD40. Lube it with Maxima Chain Wax. If you ride the bike for about 15 minutes before doing it there will be very little "fling" if any at all.

Motul Performance Lube for me. It was on sale, so I bought it instead of Chain Wax (which I used for 5 years). After a full clean and lube, then 300 miles, I could count the "flings" on one hand. Plus, it is clear as glass. Possibly the best thing to come out of France

yeah its all about technique, don't expect to lube your chain jump on and ride, then not expect it to make a mess.

AFTER your ride and when you park your bike, clean your chain, lube it up (aiming at the O-rings not just the side plates) then let the bike sit overnight and give the solvents in the lube a chance to evaporate.

I use PJ1 Black. you have to apply it properly. Spray on and WHIPE it off. I see too many people just spray their chain and leave it. then the stuff goes everywhere. You are only lubing the O-rings. the manufacture says to wipe it off.

Hmm..lots of options. I usually ride about 15 mins, lube and let it sit for about 15-30 mins and ride again. Does that sound about right for everybody?
