  • Chain lubrication

    Hi all!

    With the search function being somewhat out of order for me I'd like to get your advice on chain lub for my ninja 250. I saw one brand called crc tac2 at autopro but after a quick google search there some bad reviews with it flinging everywhere... That was the only one they had so are u guys able to recommend a brand that's good and where to get it ?

    Cheers

          motul or silkolene. make sure you lube the chain properly tho or it wont matter what you buy. lube the inside of the chain AFTER a ride, not the outside of the chain.

              The CRC is really good and heaps cheaper than the motorcycle specific lube. And as Adman said, try to get in the habit of lubing your chain after each ride when the chain is warm. Plus use it spairingly.

                Thanks for the advice guys!

                I might try this bel ray next ... Can I get it from Dale brittons in vic park? They aren't too far from me... Or is there a better place to get it?

                  if your in winthrop you could try Prestige Honda in Myaree... not sure if they stock what your after, but they are the closest bikeshop to you that i know of. never actually been there myself, just have heard of it.
                  fairly certain it's just along leach, in between north lake and stock road.

                    I have tried a fair few different brands and all in all (even if they say anti fling) they all seem to fling off a little. I tend to try and lube the chain a little when i get home after a ride, while the chain is still warm, chuck it on the stand, only takes a minute. You dont need to put heaps on if you are gonna do it frequently.

                    As far as recommending a brand, Motul, Bel ray, Chain wax. Whatever you are using is better than not doing it at all.

                      CRC/WD40 is not a lubricant and it strips the grease in your O-ring chain. I have been through tons of chain lubes, wax and gels. My favorites are lubes made by motorex, motul and Silkoline in that order.

                        My chain has done in excess of 40,000 kms using WD40 as a lubricant. No complaints here

                          We use that exact Motul one. I just bought a small can of something, can't remember what it is, recommended by Kim Britton, but it fits under the hump and comes with me everywhere. Don't know why, convenience I suppose.

                            I am using the Motul stuff - The belray tended to leave a bit of white residue around the place - even after letting it dry properly - looks a bit suss on a black bike...

                              I like the motul road stuff stays on for ages, and not much 'fling off' just dont stick too much on then you might . I got mates that like the belray stuff but im not a fan of white chains, unless yer trying to cover up a rusty chain...
