I didn't see a specific thread for chain lube like oil so thought I'd make a general posting. In any case I "try" and keep my chain lubed but seeing as I rarely see rain, I do admit sometimes I'm a bit lazy. Still try every few hundred miles. Been using a Grease Ninja
applicator for a few years and really like it. In any case, I've used several brands of chain lube including the Suzuki stuff. That really made the factory chain quieter but I didn't like the black, grease/tar like stuff that flung off and coated the underside of the chain guard. I think using a sample/door prize can of, I think, Bel-ray clean something made me a convert to the clean style lubes. No more sticky grease stuff in a can. When that ran out, I went on a search and found Lucas Oil makes a chain lube that I've been using for a couple years now and am happy with. Clean applications and it seems to stick properly. Well, I ran out and was on the search for something to try. Since I had a discount coupon for O'Reillys auto, I checked and they have the Lucas and also sell B'laster Chain and Cable Lubricant
This isn't the PB Blaster stuff most folks think of when the brand is mentioned. I decided to pick up a can along with the Lucas, hey I had a coupon, and just tried it. I decided to try it with just the included straw and liked the fact that it went where intended and didn't spray all over the place, quick spin of rear wheel and a slow steady shot and it appeared to be evenly applied. I'll let it soak in and when I ride next time I'll check it first. So if anyone is in a bind or just wants to try something different consider trying the Blaster stuff. Oh yeah, being cheap, it was on sale for $3.99 for the 11 oz can. So if it turns out to work like I suspect it will then it's a deal. Of course, you folks who envision themselves as a RTW adventure type and ride right down the middle of the Amazon river might need something more waterproof but for me, I'm OK with trying it out.
