Right, I just use the bottle for travel. I like the squeeze bottle, no overspray and you can get it at Lowe's if you run out on the road. I also don't like it as much since they changed the formula, I've gone back to Maxima Chain Wax for regular use. I'm hoping more companies start offering lube in larger squeeze bottles.Dupont also make a small bottle of chain wax. it's about the size of a cigarete pack. it packs in a tank bag, or in my case tool tube. I have no idea how many chain lubes are in one bottle, but it sure is convenient when on the road.

:yikes: Really?! Glad I saw this thread. In the past I've usually bought 4 or 5 cans at a time and it lasted me a long while. Probably would have just bought a bunch more when the current batch runs out if I hadn't seen this.The stuff in the blue can changed over a year ago. It is no longer a dry wax lubricant and not recommended for chains.
That doesn't jibe with the webbikeworld article. The yellow can stuff goes on thicker than the old blue can stuff for one thing. My own experience is the new blue can stuff doesn't dry.Spoke with DuPont about a week ago and they said the lube in the yellow can is the same as the old blue can. The only difference is the propellant. The lube is the same. Still using the chain saver in the blue can with no problems.
what don't you like about it? I like the convience and small container. I also like that it's a liquid that i can watch run from one o-ring to the next. it dries and does not attract dust and no fling off onto the wheel/swingarm. it does take me a little longer to apply, but i only use it on the road in a campground where i have lot's of time.I don't like this stuff even for my bicycle chain.

Your recommendation was all I needed to hear. The fact that it is less expensive is a bonus.
Check the webbikeworld link Greywolf posted. WBB has an Amazon store that helps support the WBB site.Where can the liquid performance chain lube be purchased? And do they make a small can for under the seat? I have purchased a small squeeze bottle of the DuPont, but haven't had to break it out yet...
Aha! I have recently noticed more chain noise than I was use to, and I had JUST recently bought more of this Dupont. I did notice the can was a different color, but I just figured they rebranded. I think you're right. This stuff doesn't dry like the old stuff, and just flings off. The last time I used it, the chain got nice and quiet for about a day, and then I could hear it again.The stuff in the blue can changed over a year ago. It is no longer a dry wax lubricant and not recommended for chains. DuPont's chain saver in the yellow can is now the dry wax lube for chains and I don't like it as much as the old blue can stuff.
