    I have used castrol, belray, PJ ,rock oil maxima and lots of others.
    But Total is different it goes on very wet but dries solid. so it penetrates but doesn't fling off.
    It has a solvent that dries very quick, but dont use it until it dries to a waxy surface.
    Best stuff i ever used for MX bike in sand.

    Just remember to let it dry first. best time to oil chain is when its hot after a ride.
    Someone asked the can size I don't recall and cant be arsed trying to find a empty can to look but it was probably one and a half to twice the size of the Castrol stuff.

    Bit of food for thought. Mr Sweary reminded me that I used hypoid gear oil / EP 90 back in the day. A wee squeezy bottle of lube makes more sense than a lazy arse aerosol, too.



    and the peddlers perspective. Pertinent peddlers...

    Back on topic...

    I have to say that the Penrite stuff has lasted well. After 750 km there was a decent film left on the chain, and it still sounds quiet when you spin the back wheel. So I've sprayed a little more on the inside of the rollers and will see how it goes.

    Can size is 500 ml-got mine from Whangarei distributor $12.50 a can-On initial application it seemed like kero in an aerosol can but not so,it does dry waxy and does not fling (too much)

    Can buy it everywhere as Forbes & Davies are the importers. Though I notice the rrp has recently increased from $19.95 to $26.54

    I like it but think I'll give that Total lube a go.

    I might change my mind about the Penrite stuff. Seems like the can is over pressurised, so I probably applied too much the first time. There is definitely less chain noise, and a good film on the chain.

    Nope, it's shit. I spent ages yesterday evening cleaning up the mess on the back wheel and swingarm because it sets almost hard once dirt sticks. It took 3 or 4 applications of WD40 to get the back wheel clean. I hate to think what it looks like inside the front sprocket cover.

    In the UK there used to be a product with lard like oil in a pan. You cleaned the chain (non O-ring days) with petrol. Put it on the 'lard' like oil, and melt it on the stove. THe oil got right in the chain then kinda solidified when cold. You could wipe off most of the external stuff when it cooled down. It set like lard and water would just roll off it. It attracted dust but a wipe would take it off. Can't remember what it was called.

    I remember that stuff! The one I had was black, maybe molybdenum or similar in it. That was in the days when horsepowers were so low that chains were just held together with a fish link and easily removable No O rings on the chain and you just hung it up whilst hot over the lube tin to let most of it drain off before it cooled down.
