Klotz Chain Lube

Does anyone know where to buy Klotz KLR chain lube in Ontario. I can but it from the Canadian Klotz website but I need to buy a carton of ten for $145 plus tax. Want to try a can first, Ted

Did you see this dealer page? Klotz Canada - Synthetic Lubricants

There are a couple in southwest Ontario but I'm not familiar with every town that is listed there, so not sure how close they are to you.

I've never seen this before but its msds sheet is interesting. Its solely a heavy Naphthenic, which is mostly used as a blending agent, and a propellant. Most chain lubes are a mix of various solvents, oils, waxes etc. How well does this product stick to the chain?

Almost every chain lube does a good job. There is no reason to hang your hat on just one.

"Older people who are reasonable, good-tempered, and gracious will bear aging well. Those who are mean-spirited and irritable will be unhappy at every period of their lives.

"Let each of use properly whatever strengths he has and strive to use them well. If he does this, he will never find himself lacking."

I been using maxima synthetic which is a good lube but flings off a lot. I started using maxima wax which I find is building up on the chain a lot but doesn't fling. I am probably applying way too much of both types. Klotz is rated by web bike world as the best and doesn't fling off. If I can't find the Klotz I will probably start using the maxima synthetic again but sparingly, Thanks, Ted
