Chain Lube?

I was told i needed to oil/lube my chain, and so checked around my local autopart stores. Has anyone ever used Permatex chain lube from Oreilly's before? Or do you have a recommended brand and where can I purchase it at?

I dont remember what the stuff I use is called(having a brain fart today) but I got it at Motorcycles Unlimited.. I beleive its chain wax(goes on as a liquid and turns white). The stuff from the autoparts store is garbage. It will make a huge mess as it slings off EVERYWHERE.

Geez.

That said, it's chain lube...that permatex stuff works fine. You usually will pay more for the motorcycle "specific" stuff for no real reason. But if it's the same price, go for it. Just don't clean your chain while the bike is running....
i've used it for years, works great. best thing to do is buy their chain clean first (611 on the can), it's a detergent to get all the dirt and chit off your chain first, then lube it up with their chainlube (622 is what i use). or you can use the cheap chit that's made for bicycles or whatever for $2 cheaper.

I have used that stuff before (it was recommended to me by Solracer, when he used to work at the Walmart down in Texas City).... but I use Maxima chain wax, after I clean the chain with kerosene.

I've, used pj1"bad", motul"good", motorex"ok" and now I'm using a can of repsoi"good". The ones I marked bad were because it flung off the chain and made a nasty mess.

Here's mine;

O-ring chains don't really need to be lubed. They need to be clean and protected from rust.
Save your money and use WD-40 to do both. Just leave a film of it when you are done, too much and it'll sling everywhere.
All that BS about using expensive lubes is hype from 2 places. Lube mfr's and chain mfr's. The 1st wants to sell more product, the 2nd want's to cover their .

Think about this.
The o-rings are there to keep the built in lube inside the links, right? Right.
Doesn't it make sense that the o-rings will keep out the lube you just sprayed on?

o-ring chains do retain lube in between the links/rollers, but you do need some lube between the links and sprocket (metal on metal is not good, unlike girl on girl which is great). and the lube keeps the chain from rusting.

i like the chain lube/wax combo from Motorcycles Unlimited, or online. it sprays on milky and turns like a chalk white. no sling (if done properly) and plenty of lube.

So CLEANING your chain is more important than lubing your chain correct?
