    wd/duck oil after washing - If the chain is over two months old use the waste oil out of your mates 4 stroke!

    Clean with wd soon as after a ride, then use diff oil to lubricate.

    I use castrol chain wax on my road bike but really can't see the point with the amount of shit that gets chucked at the chain off road.

    Cheers blurkes. Sounds like regular cleaning is more important than what you slap on.

    Spray Silicone from LIDL, just gone up to just over a pound a tin,works for me .
    Got a 3yr old Wr 250f still running the original Chain and sprockets,never used anything else on it.
    Buy a couple on tins when you find it ,as they dont always have it in stock.
