    The Tirox I'm currently using is French too - what is it with the French and teflon-based lube? Also, it goes on thin and clear and dries to a transluscent white. Bought mine from Boyds in Hamilton but it seems to be widely available.

    Dupoint might be far easier to get as its sold at Repco or it was.
    Looking at the spec its a teflon based product not sure what the Total one is, as its all written in Froggy.

    DuPont is a US company - one of their staff invented Teflon.

    I had a look at the words on the back of my last can of the DuPont chain lube. Looks like it was actually made by a company called Finish Line, who make a range of Teflon-based bike products.

    Next time I'm in East Tamaki, I'll pick up a can of the Total stuff.

    I changed over to the Castrol one. Especially on the dirt bike it does a good job of staying on the rollers for a reasonable time. Use it on the roadbike as well. Yeah it is messy but I feel it is protecting the chain. I seem to be getting good mileage out of a set.
    Wipe with kero on a rag from time to time.

    Scottoil, in a Scottoiler. Get the drip rate right (not hard) and it just quietly does its thing. No drama.

    I decided that on this bike I'd go with the Tutoro automatic chain oiler, using their chain syrup with anti-fling currently. Personally, I just hate messing with chain maintenance, so I'd much prefer an automatic oiler over pissing about with a spray can.

    This is truth.

    When a bike was my only means of transport on salty, wet roads or just wet roads, I used a Scottoiler. Never bothered with chain maintenance apart from the occasional wipe with a rag and minor tension adjustments once in a blue moon. Scottoiler sits between rattle can and shaft drive.

    Just by chance I went to a meeting Friday and parked outside was a car with Wurth sign writing. Inside I enquired who the driver was. He told me that Wurth NZ carry the full range of products and that they are aware their website is less than wonderful and are in the process of creating a new more accessible site.

    Wurth do make good stuff, although cheap it ain't, but it is available. All 36,000 products IIRC.

    But its the best stuff i have ever used.
    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.

    This^. For my everyday bandit, 35,000k chain is still fine. Hardly ever clean it. Only when Im about to fit a tyre so I dont get dirty hands. Just use WD40 and a brush to clean.

    On my fun bike, just a squirt of silicone after each ride and a wipe down. Job done.

    Have used Motul chain lube for 30 years. Geez it is sticky as buggery. Always careful how and where I spray it (usually carefully at the inside run as it comes off the countershaft sprocket.

    I like Motul products and I used their chain lube. As you say though, it's very sticky, and I thought it was picking up every bit of grit from miles around which made it into grinding paste. So I bought a Scott oiler.

    I'm trying to find something to use in winter when the roads are wet. My normal chain lube is some magical Du Pont stuff that never leaves marks on the wheel, but doesn't stop rust if the chain gets wet.
    An update on the Penrite after about 600 kms. There's still a good coating on the chain and it doesn't seem to attract dirt.

    But it just keeps coating the back wheel, although that doesn't seem to get dirty either.

    So a decent chain lube but a bit messy.
