I have always wondered about using teflon lubricant for the chain. Not neccessarily this Dupont teflon, but just in general.

I have been using the Bel-Ray chain lube for years. The one that dries to a white wax seems to be a very good product.

A friend told me about it a while back and I used it for a while, it seemed to do fine.
If you don't mind your chain having white all over it then go for it.
It works REALLY well for lubing your kickstand, white lithium grease works just as good tho.
FYI, I use the Maxima chain wax and I've had good results.

I used it in the past because a lot of people on Kawiforums had good experiences, and it worked great.

the lube i posted goes on clear, vs the lithium they offer which is white. think you have a diff. product in mind.

I use the Dupont teflon (found at Lowes). I really like it compared to the other chain lubes that exist. It does not flake off (well it does, but its a small amount, and barely noticeable if you let it dry good). Easy to clean off on your next lube, and my chain stays clean.

Latest chain lube I can compare it to, is the one found at cycle gear... can't remember the name of hand. I didn't like it as it leaves the chain white, really sticky, and flakes off into the rim real bad. Don't get me on trying to get it cleaned up on the next lube cycle.

I plan on going back to Dupont as soon as I get a chance to remove all the gunk the current chain lube left on the chain.

Your right, the pic never showed up when I first seen the post.
That can looks different than the one I had. Any idea on price?
May have to check it out when my Maxima runs out. Let us know how it works out for ya.

This stuff is amazing. I've been using it since 2007 on my current bike (2004 r6), when I installed a new chain. It now has about 27,000 miles on it. The chain has seen some abuse: a Canadian winter, two 3,000 mile long trips, you name it. I've had to adjust it maybe once.

The Dupont stuff is the easiest chain lube with which to work. Take a rag, and spray it with WD40, and then wipe down your chain with it. Let it dry, then spray it down with the Dupont lube. All done.

I clean/lube every 600 miles. If it rained a whole lot, I might have done a quick spray. One thing was that using this stuff, cleaning the chain was so much easier. The chain never really gets gunky.

Every 600 miles?! No wonder you got 27k miles on that chain... I don't think it matters what chain lube you use!

I have used the teflon spray lube in the past, for several thousand miles/at least a dozen applications, but I quit using it because I don't know if it is "O-ring safe"

other than that, i put 12k on the chain and it is still fine as far as I can tell

It says it is O-ring safe, so sounds good to me.

Yeah a huge plus to it is the chain doesn't get dirty between lubing. I'd still be using it, but it was always so hard to find at Lowes.
