DuPont Teflon multi lube

Anyone know where a Canuck can buy this stuff here in the mother land?

I am actually very happy with my Maxima chain wax, but have heard good things about this Dupont stuff too.

Cheers!

Super Lube Multi Purpose Synthetic Lube

I contacted DuPont last year and was advised they have no Canadian dealers. I have been using Super Lube Multi Purpose Synthetic Lube (with Teflon) which seams to be similar to the DuPont Teflon Multi Lube. I get it at Mountain Equipment Co-op for $9 a can and they will ship it within Canada. I started using it on my mountain bike chain and then decided to use it on the Vstrom. I have been using it for about 6000 km and it seams to work well. Spray it on, let it dry. The chain stays quite clean using this product, it does not pick up dirt. The link for the product is: http://www.mec.ca/Products/product_d...=1214936358020

Cheers

Don't think it's in Canada yet rcacs. You'll have to duck across the border. I get mine in Sumas / Lynden, Wash.

I think the only Lowes stores in Canada are in Ontario.

Darn, was just down in the States too.

O well.

Thanks for the tip - bought two 11 oz cans for $5.68 each at Brantford Lowes today. (The propellant is propane/petroleum distilates - an nearby open flame could be interesting!)

WTY - where did you get it in Lynden? I was in Wash. last week and checked 2 Walmart's and couldn't find the Dupont Lube. I did pick up a Fram ph6018 for $3 though (local dealer wants $17 for an oil filter).

Ace and Lowe's are the only places I've seen it.

Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s
