Probably because they lay it on thick, leave it dry, and never wipe the excess LIKE YOU'RE SUPPOSE TO!NewRedRider said:Lucas 90W gear oil and a rag. Takes me about 1 minute to lube my chain and no one has shown me a chain and sprocket set that has lasted longer than mine to date. Still looking for challengers after 23k miles and I still have plenty of chain left. I just can't seem to convince you guys that chain wax is not easier and it's certainly not cheaper. I have a nice shiny quiet chain when I'm done. IMO, everyone else that's using chain wax looks like caked on crap.
Now that's two of you guys push'n that crap... I'm gonna try it.gammaray said:There are too many opinions about how to clean the chain. I have my way, and it works fine, so I wont go into that, because Im sure someone will disagree. Do a search, and just take your pick. As far as Lube...Bel Ray Super Clean has been great for me.
