Best no mess chain lube

Recommended Posts

What is the best chain lube that won't fling all over?

I use Maxima Synthetic Crystal Clear Chain Guard, it lubricates well but makes a mess of my rim and under fender.

I just started using silicone lubricant. Don't see the need for a chain specific lube. And the o- and x-ring chains have the lube locked in where it really counts anyway.

I use that stuff, too.

Try using a bit less.

I spray the chain then wipe off the excess with a rag.

I use chain wax by Rockoil......No mess ever.

I use the leftover oil from changes to clean and oil the chain. It is light but too light, synthetic, I really cant think of a reason why not except I could use it on my next ride. I just like that it reminds me to give the chain a good once over every time I do an oil change.

Motul "road" for the motard and motul "offroad" for the cr125, unless I am riding in the sand then I just use silicon spray as the oil turns the sand into a thick paste which proceeds to eat through the sprocket

+1 on Motul road and off-road. Don't use to much.

I use PJ1 too. It's good stuff.
pj1 blue used on r1 at over 160mph will not fly off

Yep, good for me too, I tend to put it on when I come back from a ride, so by the time I want to go out again the solvent has evaporated off.

That helps with any lube.

Maxima Chain Wax is the absolute best chain product I've used. Street or dirt....

Agreed.

I use a spray can of white lithium grease. That's what the chain mfg's use on their chains from the factory. I[ve used it for years and get good service from it.

I have two Pro Oilers also. One on my FZR and one on my R1. Very cool chain oilers.

I use Bel Ray Super Clean chain lube. It is white, and does not make a mess.

Me too , but i use to spray the chain with a more oily lube at night , let it dry and some time later when am gonna let the bike to sit am spraying with the Bel Ray which makes something like a thin film on the chain , or what i think .

I use Tri Flow. Its a teflon lube that goes on wet and then dries. Doest fling off and make a mess. I get a few spatters here and there that just wipe off clean. I have around 4k miles on my off road chains and sprockets and they are still good. I like teh stuff and my local hardware store has it.

      Hey all, 
      I'm looking at buying a 2004 Suzuki DRZ400EK or at least I think it's an EK according to Vin lookup websites, but it does not appear to have a kickstarter. I was told the bike was owned by a motorcycle dealer and that it has a current green sticker, and a California license plate but has not been registered for the streets since 2011. I want this as a dual sport but am not clear if the fact that it already has a plate means I am good to register it or if maybe they took away the ability to register it after it was plated, California loves to do that kind of stuff. Since the bike was owned by a dealer I would think they were up on the latest regulations in California, but who knows. Can anyone add any insight as to what I should look for on the bike itself like the carburetor, model numbers etc? Or do I just try my luck at the DMV?

      Hi,
      I have a 2003 DRZ (actually a KLX400) and the head tube bearings are shot.  I ordered a new set to install but I'm wondering if anyone has any recommendations on other parts I should replace while I have the front disassembled.  I was thinking about new rubber fork protectors, but are there other things that wear out on the DRZ front ends that you can only get to when disassambled?
      I also broke off a replacement key that I got for the steering lock.  I must have been made of cheap pot-metal.  Should I just remove the whole lock mechanism?
      Any tips or tricks for getting the old bearings out and the new ones in would be welcome!
      Thanks!

      Hey Guys,
      I recently bought a 2003 DRZ400S and thought it would be a good idea to check the valves clearance etc . I timed the engine on TDC with the magneto mark aligned as per the manual but I find the cam timing slightly odd. The arrows pointing upward are on the 1st and 15th pin as they should but with the magneto timing mark aligned they are not perfectly straight. Same goes for the arrows that should be parallel to the cylinder head casing. Is this normal or should they be absolutely perfect ?
