Used Maxima chain wax for years. Been very reliable and does work well with O-ring and non O-ring chains. It goes on without the tacky grease that just attracks dirt. The chain stays a lot cleaner with Maxima I've have found over the years.
When I first switched over to using Maima Chain lube I was not sure on what I was getting in to. But I will never switch brands again, The Maxima Chain lube Works great and Stays tacky for a long time Thanks
Chain wax is the way to go in my experience. I clean my chain with Maxima Chain cleaner at least every other ride and apply a t coating of chain wax 15-20 minutes before i ride and it is good for the motos for the day.
I read great reviews and figure I would give it a try, Apply this to a clean chain, let it sit for 10 minutes and your set. Does not sling anything, keeps the chain fairly clean as well. Other lubes attract dirt and mud and sling grease everywhere. Definitely my lube of choice.
This stuff works great but you have to plan ahead. You have to apply it and give it time to dry, I usually wait overnight. This way you have a lubed chain without all the oily crap stuck on the engine case/frame/swingarm etc.
I tried this chain lube on the dusty, dry trails of Colorado and Utah. What a mess. This stuff is a magnet for dirt. I ended up with a gummy, sticky, gritty mess on my chain. There a a lot of fans of chain waxes, and I guess they have their place: high-humidity, low dust environments. So, if you ride the streets in Seattle, this may be your chain lube.
I found DuPont's dry chain saver (with Teflon) to be perfect for my application. Keeps the chain lubed and reasonably clean, and doesn't attract grit.
Going to give this nearly full can to one of my ADV or street biker friends.
I've used several different types of chain lube and Maxima chain wax is always my go-to. Others work well also but it seems that the chain stays Lubes longer and looks cleaner for longer. Minimal sling off
My buddy warned me about this stuff - it sticks to everything and does not come off. Once you have made a mess of your drivetrain you'll regret using this.
Pro-tip use purple power cleaner and a power washer to get rid of it. I will continue using lucas chain lube. Best thing you can do for a chain is to keep it clean and lube it at the end of each ride to prevent rust and keep the orings from drying out.
Use this on my sport bike. Works great, keeps chain well lubed between applications. I lube about every other week. Would recommend cleaning the chain before initial application as well as reapplication.
Unlike most chain lubes, this won't make a mess of your bike. Goes on wet and penetrates the chain, then dries to dry waxy finish. Works well with oring and xring chains. I use to lube other things like my foot peg pivots.
I have used Belray chain lube/wax for nearly 30 years with no complaints until I finally got a gold chain. I was using the Belray super clean and when I finally bought a gold chain it looked like a 2 year old with a box of white crayon's went at it Everytime I cleaned and lubed the chain which kind of negates the whole reason we run gold chains(because they look better than black). A friend of mine told me about the Maxima chain wax so I have it a shot and absolutely love it. It goes on a tan, brownish color and really wet like Belray so it soaks into the places you want the lube to be then it gets tacky after a few minutes when applied to a warm chain but after a couple hours it fully cures into a no fling almost dry lubed that nothing sticks to and just so happens to be gold in color. The key to using this lube is warm your chain, spray or on and let it set up for a couple hours before you ride and you will be pleased with the results. This is not a spray and go lube unless you want it everywhere except the chain. This has never been a problem for me as I always wash my bike and clean the chain before the next ride. It's a very good lube for us track and off-road riders period.
It does not clean the chain, just lubes it. I personally have had good luck with several different ones but none better than the other in my opinion. I use a bike cleaner called slick and it does great for all the components including the chain. It doesn’t strip lubrication points and areas crucial to the mobility of moving parts. Hope this helps. Good luck and be safe.
It does clean the chain somewhat, I use it both on my duel purpose and trials bike and like the results however I wood suggest using a citrus based cleaner after about every five applications of the wax just to get a deep clean on the chain.
This product does not clean the chain. You must clean the chain first, let it dry, then use this product to keep the chain from rusting. I have an "O" ring chain. That remains sealed. This protects the rest of the chain from the elements.
