You have probably three good recommendations above. I swear by the red can Honda HP7, but I haven't tried the others. Something tells me the Lowes teflon spray is for screen door hinges and wants no part of a motorcycle chain.

The Dupont is sold at Lowes. I'm wonderring if he's maybe referring to the Dupont Dry Teflon lube that recently was renamed the chain lube, or the Dupont Teflon multipurpose lube which is advertised as a dry lube but is best used for hinges, cables, clutch perches, ect... Their whole line is quality, but the chain specific is the most fling reesistant.

How many threads are out here with these sort of information? about chain grease, motor oil, tires, etc...?
but btw I'm using this one here
BelRay Chain lube, it sticks to the chain and very rarely do I find a little spot under the back end of the bike, The one I'm using is white, so I can see when it's used up and then spray on more, I do that about every 500-600 miles anyways:thumbsup:

I use the blood of an unborn yack! then sprinkle it with dried ground puppies! puppies work great for all kinds of things! here is my new crash cage on my stunt bike! I'm thinking about marketing this idea!

Do a ZX10r forum search for chain lubes, theres alot of info. I just can't resist recommending the red can Honda HP7, I've used it for many years and I know this stuff is chain magic in a can. :wink:

Most chain waxes/lubes work very well, to ensure that it doesn't fly off the chain do the following: clean chain throughly, take bike for a 10-15 minute ride to heat chain up, come back and apply chain lube/wax. The heat from the chain should for the most part ensure little to no excess lubricant/fly off......

Btw, I do the above steps and use Maxima and haven't had any issues....my .02.

On a sealed O ring or X ring chain you should worry more about keeping it clean than what type of lube to use.

A clean chain and a thin layer of lube (mostly to prevent rust) will do the trick. You will do more harm than good with some of the waxes and lubes availible. Grim will start to build and destroy the O rings.
