I have been googleing a bit, and I think I will go for Motul spray. But which one. They have at least C2, C2+, C3 and C4

Some are for sports bikes, some for offroad, but can't I just use an allrounder?

Are the interchangeable? I remember on my ordinary bike that I need to remove old one if I put on wax

Regards, Lars.

Dupont's Chain Saver formula would be a good candidate. Incredible creeper oil and dries into a dry wax without any mess or accumulation.

I use Wurth HHS2000, but it is tacky and will attract dirt/dust.

You could check out WebBikeWorld and all their chain lube reviews and comparisons :smile2: :

I am using Tirox Synthetic Chain Wax now that my supply of original recipe DuPont Multi-Use Dry, Wax Chain Lube is all gone.


YMMV

But how about the Motul? And can any lube be added onto any existing already on the chain? (Do I need to remove the existing first?)

Regards, Lars.

Ask 10 riders about 10 chain lube options and you'll probably get well over 100 opinions.

I've used what I think was the C2 stuff in the past. Thought it worked fine. A little sticky, perhaps. C4 is intended for racing chains, it says. No experience with it.
I have used their chain paste, and didn't think much of it. Had my shortest-lived chain ever using that stuff. As a paste, obviously it doesn't penetrate anything, anywhere.

Check out Ryan at Fortnine (youtube) on Lubes

Never Buy Chain Lube Again? Comparison Test


Ryan not only performs 4 different tests to see what lube works best for chains with O rings but he also explains chain mechanics and friction. What is chain lube for? Manufacturers say "rust prevention". Find out what mfgs recommend.

Buy a Scott Oiler and a $3 quart of ATF and you'll have enough chain lube for 30,000 miles. You can also expect double+ mileage out of chain and sprockets. All the while never needing to manually cleaning you chain again. The Scott continuous oiling will clean and lube the chain as you ride.


The $143 dollar investment up front pays for itself in short order.

Ryan's tests exactly coincide with my personal experience with Belray Superclean. While it was nice having a nice and clean backside, i noticed small bits of rust appearing after only slight wetness (if you donnt reapply often). I was also not impressed with the rollers lubrication. That brought me to the Tutoro oiler. But as i have found out, there are tradeoffs, and no free lunch. Messier usually oils well, and vice versa.
