Motorcycle Chain Lubricant TIPS
Avoid anything too sticky, it will just accumulate dirt and turn your chain into a grinding sludge paste that will actually increase the wear and friction of the sprockets.
Please DO NOT use WD40 spray on a motorbike chain, the reason is because it will dissolve any lubricant in the bearings and evaporate all those chain lubricant that you have spray earlier.
Also please do not believe in product that claims to be chain cleaner and chain lubricant combine in one bottle *hint WD40.
Each function of a chain cleaner and chain lubricant is different and how can these two function in the same bottle?
It is prudent to stick to established motorcycle brands such as MOTUL, LIQUIDMOLY, MUC OFF that specialize in manufacturing for racing factory motorcycle products.
