I've finally found a non flick chain lube!
« on: August 29, 2016, 08:40:25 PM »
Finally, after trying just about every chain lube that guarantees "no flick", I've actually found one that doesn't flick. At all. Nothing!

500 miles since I applied it, ridden in rain, triple figure speeds (all in the name of testing ), and there was not one spot of chain lube on the rear wheel before I washed the bike today.

And the winner is........

SDOC100 White chain spray.

I'm extremely impressed. I'd normally have to spend time getting all the tar off the rear wheel, number plate and rear painted panels after washing it, but didn't have to today.

I've also been using their chain cleaner. Spray on, leave for 15 minutes, agitate slightly with a chain brush, and the chain comes up like new (7200 miles on the clock).

They even do a plastic guard for the can, so you don't spray the whole bike!

Cheers Rich always looking for decent products by referral. Gets xlnt reviews as well. Have just ordered both on Amazon to try.
I have been using Silkolene Chain Gel. This is virtually no fling, but becomes 'gungy' in use. A decent chain cleaner is always welcome.

OK I gave it a go

The cleaner is bloody brilliant and so far the Lube seems to be equally so.

All that said i think a great deal of cjhain related stuff is down to the discipline to clean and lube regularly but as said I am impressed with the lube and there ids a good offer on a full case at this place and good offers on the cleaner and bike cleaner as well

Been using SDOC chain cleaner and white lube for about 6 years now... excellent product.
I also found this lube guard thing which attaches to the can and stops it going everywhere when you spray it. I used to put bits of cardboard between the chain and the wheel/exhaust but now don't need to... got if off eBay I think. Dunno if you're already aware, but you can also buy a smaller spray can for touring, which you can refill from the bigger spray can
