What do you use to lube your chain?

Just curious because I'm headed to Autozone to pick up some oil, time for that oil change! Figured I may as well pick up some chain oil too. Thanks in advance...

I use chainsaw lubricant (silicon?) from Home Depot. No fling, no mess.

Less mess = Chain wax


Longer chain life & less stretch = motor oil

This stuff is supposed to be the fishizzle.
It's O-ring friendly and you can pick it up
at Lowe's for $5-$6 a can.

It's all we use at the shop and the track.

We sell Maxima Chain wax as well, but the Bel Ray Super Clean works best for me.

PJ1 Blue chain lube is what I've been using.

O-Ring friendly and its clear. Not to mention its a bit sticky once it soaks in and drys so no fling and 'it's clear'. Spray it on and wait a few minutes and you're good to go.
