What chains lube/grease

I use chain wax myself, though you'll get as many recommendations as there are brands of lube. If you commute in all weathers a daily spray of oil during the wet spells won't do any harm, if you're a sunny weekend warrior like myself just do it when it looks like it's getting dry.

I use the WD40 stuff. little bit cheaper than the muck-off stuff and can be procured freely (at a price) at my local halfrauds.

 

Do not use wd40 it is not a lubricant and it washes grease and oil away


Your chain will wear a lot quicker using wd40!

I use gear oil (80w) never had a problem though I wonder if I had a more powerful bike if it would be liable to fling :?

 

I can confirm it does :lol:


and I use 90w which is thicker

I use chainsaw oil from a local tool shop. Cheaper than branded motorcycle chain oil, and stickier so less fling.

I have also used it in a Scottoiler - which is a brilliant device.
