    It says so on the tin so why should i doubt it ?

    Like BMW telling me that the GS is a round the world adventure bike and the best in the world at it

    Now at the risk of being serious, lubricate may not be the correct word in its purest form as the SDOC chain lube seems to contain various stuff PTFE being one of them and some sort of advance adhesive to prevent fling etc

    So lubricate or reduce friction, pick your terminology

    I know PJ1 lubricates but it also flings a lot which is why on the recommendation of a tosser i sort of trust as he has the same bike as me ( albeit a slower one) I will try this stuff

    I am impressed so far !

    The cleaner is very very good and the lube seems to be equally excellent

    Good deals on the stuff here http://www.motorcycle-road-and-race....cycle-cleaners

    I used this PTFE lub on the last chain drive bike I had (Triumph Tiger 800xc) & found it to be very good. The only downside I found was that it didnt seem to prevent corrosion & the outer link plates went rusty. I resorted to the occasional wipe with scottoil oil. Could have been the quality of the chain or not re-applying often enough or after a wet ride? See how you get on with it.

    Chain saw oil is great for anti corrosion and will polymerise after a while so really stays stuck. It's cheap as well.

    Just to resurrect a thread, based on a few positive comments about SDOC in this thread I tried a can of SDOC cleaner and white spray and have been totally impressed by a) how clean the chain is when you use the cleaner and b) the lack of fling-off. Just purchased a 6 can pack (3 cans cleaner and 3 cans of white lube) as its by some margin the best stuff I have used. No idea how well it actually lubes the chain but time will tell Im sure.

    So thanks Nutty & Redrick

    What on earth do you use to degrease the sprocket, wheel and chain guard? That looks like it came straight out off the showroom.
