No Fling Chain Lube?

Anyone use this stuff? I understand it works great. Dries clear and no flinging. Does a good job of initial cleaning too from what I've read.





I'm probly gonna buy a can today...my Suzuki Chain Lube gets all over my wheels.

I use PJ1. Normally, I use the Blue Label, which isn't supposed to fling off (and it doesn't). The shop was out of Blue, so I had to buy Black. I think it's going to be more "flingy" (is that a word?) than the Blue. We'll see!

if you have 0-ring chains, you really don't have to lube it. the lube is in the 0-ring. All you need to do is keep it clean. I use wd40 to clean it then wipe it off. Chain lube is a real mess.

I use PJ1 black, applied to the inside of the chain loop after riding. The next day, the lube is like wheel bearing grease and won't fling.

That dupont teflon stuff is GOOD $#!t- I use it for everything possible! Still, most lube wont fling if you let it sit long enough. But get the teflon anyway.

I was to the understanding that you need to shoot the chain with some shiz every so often.

lube it to keep the o-rings from dry rotting. not necessarily lube the chain. there is lubricant trapped inside the 0-ring. you just need to keep it clean.

Like BM says you don't need to "lube" the o or x-ring chains!
