  • Full disclosure: I used a half-empty bottle of Canadian Tire gear oil because I had one lying around and never expected it to win. *Oops.* If you actually decide to buy some, it behooves us to mention that F9 and RZ also sell gear oil. Link in description. ~RF9

    • Great idea apart from the fact it'll likely swell and destroy the o-rings. Killing the chain in record time. I've see it literally hundreds of times, people cut corners or are to tight to buy chain lube and use engine oil or equivalent. Really surprised you overlooked this. In my experience WD40 is the worst. People use it as a chain cleaner then wonder why after a couple of months the o-rings are poking out for between the links 😨

  • Did you allow the Maxima wax to set before some of these tests? I'm sure instructions would say to allow time for the solvent to evaporate before use. I have a hard time believing that stuff would fling off at all once it sets. To be fair you should test under the manufacturers instructions. Maybe you did? From my experience, that chain wax dries to a pretty adhering semi solid that would stay put much better than gear oil.

  • Well..good vid.BUT...maxima says to allow it to sit for a certain amount of time(I usually wait 30 mins).It will NOT fling as your test result showed.Plus I generally take a cloth and lightly go over the chain just after spraying it liberally.Fling is virtually non-existent.It will fling if you ride immediately after applying. I also clean the chain with kerosene and a basting brush at around 400-600 mile intervals.This works very well. Great vid though...very informative(as usual). Gear oil works very well also if the excess is wiped off before riding.But it still will fling and leave spots on the wheel and some bodyparts.

  • I will try and continue listening oh, but once you mention that WD-40 is anywhere in the realm of lubrication and rust prevention I almost fell on the floor I didn't even understand why you had it on your table. WD-40 is not a lubricant. It is a solvent. And it's designed to displace water from wet ignition systems so that they will run in the wet. It was designed for World War II and Korean War where are we used a supply line of Dodge trucks so that you could keep them running in the rain. Please don't get WD-40 near anything that needs to be lubricated. I have seen it cause Firearms to lock up in mid cycle and be unable to be made safe because they're stuck in mid cycle with live ammo in them. I have seen chain lube that does not sling off of chains in any way shape or form and still leaves the metal damp. And the other thing that you can use is to squirt a little bit of Z Max on to it and it will soak into Steel. Have been, if I still used a motorcycle with a chain on it which I haven't done in almost fifty years now. I would spray dry Teflon on it. Otherwise I tend to run a shaft on my motorcycles it's a lot nicer ride.

  • Out of curiosity I checked my owners manual and Yamaha says “NOTICE: Do not use engine oil or any other lubricants for the drive chain, as they may contain substances that could damage the O-rings.” Ryan would you soak some of these o-rings for a day or two and observe any changes like swelling, loss of or increase in flexibility etc.? I would do it myself but then I would miss out on another outstanding informative and entertaining video.

  • Chains originally were never meant to run in the open but in a oil bath which of course isn't practical on a cycle. In industrial settings that I worked in they were in oil baths for conveyors and such with some untouched for over 20 years only to replace the electric motor driving them.

  • Chain oiler. You can make your own but Scottoiler are good. Beats carrying round gear oil and a toothbrush on a long trip, plus the chain is always lightly oiled. Tends to attract more dirt to the surfaces it lands on (swing arm wheel), but makes cleaning easier. 'O' rings definitely seal better and create less friction if they are wet. The rollers are always lubricated and dirt and grit 'fling' off if you use lighter weight oil. The lubes you use make dirt stick to the chain. The ones with solvent bases that are meant to be tacky and resist fling dry out and tear the 'O' rings. The longest test I did with a Scottoiler was 60,000 miles on an OEM chain Yamaha FJ1200 - There was hardly any elongation when I sold it, the witness marks showed the rollers were still sitting right between the teeth of the sprocket. The latest test is on a DID chain - Triumph Sprint GT. 50,000km and I have changed tyres more often than I have needed to adjust the chain.

  • My current solution is a Chinese copy of the Nemo chain oiler bought for 14GBP (16USD?) with 80/90 gear oil. I'm not even sure it's a copy I think the Nemo is the chinese made unit rebadged. I've also found wiping a clean chain with ACF50 (use as little as possible and let it dry before riding) works pretty well...

  • I love your test procedures and I'm a bit sad that your channel is pretty much entirely focused on motorbikes. She who must be obeyed has said I'm not allowed to have a motorbike any longer so the horsepower that gets applied via chain to my back wheel is somewhat lower these days. With that out of the way I was wondering if there is any chance of a follow up test. When it comes to pushbikes pretty much the ultimate in lubes is paraffin and PTFE. I was wondering how this would fair on motorbike chains. Oz Cycle does a great video or 2 on making and applying chain wax.

  • For about 6 months I have stopped applying any lube to the chains on my 2 bikes.Following the advice of Neevesy from MCN I simply clean the chain after every ride using WD40 and paper towels.The chains are always spotless.The theory is that any lube applied will attract grit and form a grinding paste.So keep the grit away and the chain will last a long time...the WD40 just stops the chain rusting.I find it hard to accept that any lube on the chain will prevent wear on the sprockets.Anyway I cover 10,000 miles a year so I will soon find out if the chains start to deteriorate.But up to now the chains look good with no obvious signs of wear.You can buy 4 litres of WD40 and a spray bottle off Ebay for £24.I simply hoist the bike up on the Abba Stand and just spray and wipe about 8 inches at a time as I spin the rear wheel.Takes less than 5 minutes.

  • loved this video. Very meticulous and scientific approach. Just want to add my 2 cents about Chain Wax (Maxima) While it landed at 5th place, I believe that it partly because it takes some time to dry. like 30 mins or more. Once dry it is barely tacky to the touch. I think if it had been given more dry time it would have scored much higher in Splatter, and probably Grit as well. Which likely could have made it come in at least 2nd place due to it's great scores in Rust and Roller. I typically clean and lube my chain after washing my bike and then put it away. so it always gets hours to dry.

  • With your chain making thousands of rotations every ride and servicing of it only being done periodically i would think the lube that stays put the longest would be best. You should have shown a X ring so people can see it's not a X but rather a O Ring with steps on the side. The steps reduce contact and have more surface area to hold lube.

  • Well, I do really recommend that you CLEAN and then LUBE your motorcycle chain. If it wasn't for your safety I would suggest that you run your chain without lubrication. Ever. Bad things would happen. Really bad. Being with gear oil (there are better choices, like 90w140) or with a good spray lubricant, always lube the chain. And, Ryan, try to spray the chain with Motul C1, leave it over night before use. Then run the motorcycle. Test wether there is lubricant in the outer part of the rollers. I think you will be surprised. You can run the motorcycle in a stand to avoid being biased by dirt on the road. Good luck. Even if not faultless, your FARTs continue to be most interesting and informative.

  • CHAIN CLEANING: Courtesy of ROUGE RACING USA This just recently came up in conversation on another message forum where a couple riders had complained about their fairly new X-Ring high end chain had the x-rings literally falling apart. Many years ago I had personally experienced a similar issue with an OEM o-ring chain and what had happened is I had used a very stiff plastic bristle brush to clean the chain and the bristles actually started to tear at the rubber o-rings and cause them to fall apart. In this recently reported incident though the owners were stating that they did not use stiff bristle brushes etc, but there was a common denominator in that they were all using Motul Chain Cleaner. Now while the ingredients in the chain cleaner might not be caustic to the rubber o-rings or x-rings that does not mean that the propellant inside the can to get that detergent to the chain isn't. When I pulled the MSDS sheet on the chain cleaner it showed Butane & Propane as ingredients and both of those are deemed unsatisfactory for use with EPDM rubber. It was also stated in the Motul literature that the product was supposed to be applied in short bursts whereas the users were simply spraying it out of the can in long durations and rotating the wheel slowly by hand to coat the chain with the cleaner. This prolonged spraying allows the propellant in the can to saturate the rubber o-rings and start to deteorate them instead of evaporating quickly. Don't misconstrue I am not opposed to using Motul Chain Cleaner I am simply saying that if you do not use it correctly you may be subjecting your o-ring chain to premature failure. Additionally it is highly likely that it is not just Motul Chain Cleaner that this would be an issue with. I am reasonably sure other cleaners and even other brands of aerosol chain lubrication also contain propellants that are harmful to the rubber o-rings so too much of a good thing can easily become a bad problem. I was asked about my own chain maintenance and what I recommend. The short answer is I use WD-40 for cleaning and light lube at all times. When I take the time to actually lube the chain properly it is usually Repsol Chain Lube. For the sake of clarification I am not a fan of Repsol products as I find their engine oils to be very inferior, but their chain lube product is excellent. It sprays out of the can in a very fine, atomized and controlled mist and is easy to clean up if you get any overspray. I never use any type of chain wax which is absoutely worthless as mentioned above or any of the lubricants that are sticky/tacky. Anything that attracts dirt and debris is the exact opposite of what you want on your chain and can lead to some of that debris making contact with the rubber o-rings (x-rings) and damaging them.

  • How can wd40 evaporate in one test, but fling off excessively in another? It seems like it didnt get enough time in the flingtest for the carrier/propellant to evaporate. It would have been great to see some of wd40's specialist products, perhaps in a future test? :D Also, I dont think you can just add up the 4 test, and the one with highest average wins. Its even stated in the beginning that the rollers dont really need oil. And if a chain picks up a lot of grit, it will wear out the chain faster, despite its ability to prevent rust, or splatter. You can also use a combination of the stuff, like wd40 for cleaning and to use when you know you will pick up a lot of grit, and gear oil for commutes on tarmac.
