I can attest to the Dupont stuff being a great product. I kept my original Wee-Strom chain lubed with it for over 30,000 miles before finally needing to replace the chain. I attribute this longevity to the Dupont lube.

Yes, I read that too. Actually looking forward to trying that new stuff. A can lasts a LONG time and my chain looks like new and doesn't have all that oil dripping off it.

Ever seen the back rim of those people who put those automatic oil chain drips on? Makes the bike and their chain look like crap.

Here's a thread I ran into on that new Teflon Chain Lube, if interested... http://www.sportbikes.net/forums/gen...hain-lube.html

Stoked that the DuPont is available at my local Wal-Mart. Nice.

And thanks.

Note that this thread is old, and Dupont has since changed their formula for their chain lube. Who knows why, but the new stuff isn't up to the same standard, apparently.

Crikey! "Hey, we have a winner - lets totally, mess with it." Well done, DuPont.

The end of the link states:

So our current favorites are now the Liquid Performance Chain Lube, the Original Bike Spirits, which was the winner of our 2010 Chain Lube Comparison or the Klotz KLR, winner of our 2008 Chain Lube Comparison.


Thoughts on any of those in relation to the Tiger Roadie?

I'm sure I'll get criticized for spending the big bucks, but I put a scottoiler on my bike and never think about. 16,000 miles, and my chain looks great. The best part is I never think about it. Ever. I fill the reservoir when it tells me to. About every 1500 miles and that's it. Did I mention I never think about it
