What's the best chain lube?

Even such a ubiquitous product should be given a second thought, especially one that can leave a nasty mess if it's not up to the job. Properly lubing your motorcycle drive train will most definitely add extra life to your chain and sprockets. With so many choices on chain lube how is one suppose to find a decent product that works?

Well, customer reviews have always been a go-to for me when shopping online. The products that stand out are the Motul Factory Line Chain Lube, Dupont Teflon Chain Lube and the Maxima Chain Wax when it comes to decent customer reviews with the Motul currently outselling the Maxima.

Motul's Factory Line has always been a staple in high end performance lubricants. I've noticed off-road guys seem to gravitate towards Maxima while street riders embrace Motul. Perhaps it's the marketing? Who knows. Maxima also offers a smaller 8-oz size for those looking for portability and a lower price point.

Another relatively new product to the bunch is the Dupont Teflon chain lube that's widely used among racers and voted one of the best chain lubes by a motorcycle publication. This my current go-to chain lube of choice and it's pretty amazing stuff - especially with a name like Dupont behind it. It works and it works well.

These are our top 3 selling chain lubes on our website and should serve you well!
