Chain cleaner / lube

I had purchased some online when i bought my bike, and loaned it to a neighbor, who never returned it... so where is a place that i can purchase these items? I don't have a pref on brand unless you recommend a specific brand.

Thanks for your help in advance...

Cycle Gear or any MC shop should carry it. Chain Wax brand is good.

I would imagine house of paint would carry this stuff, i know tony stocks motul oil wouldnt be surprised if he carries this stuff or just call House of paint and ask tony what he thinks is best.

I like this stuff the most from the stuff ive tried, it cleans easily with no mess and then the chain lube leaves a light white-ish color to see where you have already sprayed the chain. and motul is a bad brand, its like the dainese of motorcycle care products also it isnt expensive... but replacing your chain all the time is expensive :P

I use the motopro (cyclegear brand) that cost $5.99 since I can't find the spray teflon stuff at home depot.

*any chain lube should work fine if your chain is properly adjusted.

I use motorcycle chain oil because of the O rings. Kerosene to clean it. Is what my owner manual recommend.
I get the oil at Wild West Honda with the MotoHouston discount.

Until recently, I have used WD-40 on all my chains--for cleaning. Highest mileage was 20k (traded it in at that point), but stock chain and sprocket were still good. I don't spray it directly on the chain, but on a t-shirt rag, and clean it with that and a toothbrush to avoid it dripping onto the tire. I only recently started using the spray chain cleaner bc it is less time consuming. I have always used a separate chain lube though.

OMG TMI dude. ROFL! But, you are incorrect regarding it not being addressed. I said Chain Wax. Others said Teflon, someone else said WD-40. You just wanted to say KY.

If your in the Katy area, Wild West Honda carries Maxima cleaner and lube, works pretty well.

Cycle Gear or any of the moto shops carry these stuff.

Used to use WD-40, but now I clean my chain with kerosene + grunge brush since it's cheap and works very well. Chain wax, I use... chain wax.

You can find the dupont teflon spray at walmart for about $5 or so. I wanted to give it a try, but I am fine with the products I'm using. Not all walmarts carry it, but there should be one small column in the auto area with motorcycle specific items, including Mobil 4T oil (YMMV).

The one off Beltway 8 and Bissonnet carries both.

The best deal is from Maxima. They offer a combo package that includes 3 full size cans. Chain cleaner, Maxima Chain Guard synthetic lube, and a can penetrating lube similar to WD-40. After the Motohouston discount, $14.50. In stock at Wild West Honda. Soon to be called Wild West Motoplex and hopefully include Yamaha.
