Chain Lube

What's the best chain lube and coolant? Any ideas or suggestions? I heard Engine Ice is the best on the market.

Bel Ray chain lube and Coolanol Antifreeze / water pre-mix.
Add Water Wetter or Motul MoCool to make it a bit cooler.

Engine Ice sucks imo, and can stop up your cooling system.

i use "maximum" chain wax and i mix "water wet" in with my coolant, It is a pink liquid that helps you run even 20 degrees cooler than just coolant. You can pick it up at advance auto for about 8 dollars

I use the Maxima chain wax. I like it. I run Supercool by Redline. It's a premix of deionized water and water wetter. The ZX-10R seems to like it and runs pretty cool. And yes, I remember the PJ1 being gooey and flingy too. I'd imagine most chain lubes are good but it's all about HOW you clean and lube your chain for the lube to do its job. Do it the right way and your good.
