i also use MAXIMA , but i use the synthetic stuff ,.. it thickins when it goes on the chain and it dosn't fling off as much ,..

don't know if everyone does this,.. but i put my bike on the rear stand and put it into first and spray on the lube and when it's on i then put it up to 4-5 gear and rev it up a bit . it should fling off any accsess stuff .

Can't remember which Magazine but they recently did an article on chain lubes, and found that PJ1 black label has the least amount of slingoff and most effective. That's what I have in my garage and have had since I can remember lubing a chain on my dirtbike since age...10 or so :cheers

Isn't the "Blue Label" designed for O-Ring chains though? I was looking at the Blue Label stuff, but hadn't considered the Black Label because of the O-Ring.

Chain Wax is definitly the good stuff, swear by it, in summer i usually clean and lube my chain bi-monthly, Pro Honda Brake and Contact Cleaner is by far the best for cleaning, then hit it with the chain wax, and you'll definitly notice the difference. :hammer

According to this the difference in X ring to O ring is the shape of the seals, and the X seal is supposed to keep dirt out better, but as I read the "better" job it does is not justified to it's cost against the O ring chains. And reading on the PJ1 blue label vs. black label.

black labels literature:
Heavy duty, thin-bodied lubricant penetrates chain rollers. Molybdenum disulfide and synthetic sperm oil added. For standard and o-ring off-road chain.

blue labels literature:
Gives o-ring chains longer life
Keeps o-rings moist and pliable
No messy fly-off

Sounds mostly like the black label is for off road and any O ring or standard chain, and that blue label is for basically motorcycle O rings. The magazine that I read said the black label had the least amount of fling off, I think either can be used, but since I've been using black label for, who knows...ever? I'll try the blue label to see if I notice a difference, which is in about 15 more miles but a half a can of black label left, when I do try the blue label and if a difference is noticed, I'll find this thread and post. :drink

In what way is chain wax far more superior, I'm interested in finding something new, I'm satisfied but always interested in better products. It sounds like the label is saying just what the black label says. For standard and O ring applications.

I use the Belray Chain lube, but to avoid that nasty looking coating I spray the shit out the chain then wipe off the the outside of the links and it is hardly noticeable.

Personally I would rather have the chain have a barely noticeable tinge of white than get lube all over the wheel, tire and undertail of the bike, but that's just me. And the Belray WILL NOT sling off. :hammer

belray superclean

I used to use maxima, but it doesn't stay on the chain.

Belray does leave the chain looking white but it doesn't fling off the chain, which is a good tradeoff for me. Belray also doesn't seem to attract as much dirt/grime as maxima used to. The only downside is that its a little harder to clean the chain (which makes sense if it sticks to the chain better).

I use Redline 80w/140 gear oil! Clean chain with kerosene... 1 drop of oil on each roller... rotate wheel 12-15 times to work oil into chain... wipe off excess with a clean rag!
