Chain Protection

Any of you fellas use white lithium grease to protect your chains? I'm thinking of trying it on my street bike. I have an O-ring chain, the grease isn't to lube it, I want to use it to keep the chain from rusting. I've been using WD 40. Getting ready to get a new chain and sprockets and want them to look new as long as possible. I've heard chain wax does what I want, but never tried it. Any ideas?

Re: Chain Protection

try a little bit of ATF on the chain, the other stuff gets pretty sticky and all types of crud sticks to it.

Re: Chain Protection

Oh yeah it's way too light but for storage it'd be good. It seems to get into every nook and cranny.

Re: Chain Protection

why do you have wd-40 ANYWHERE near a chain? wd-40 is glorified
varsol, and that is all it should be used for

Re: Chain Protection

Wrong answer! WD40 is the BEST thing to use on an o-ring chain ... it cleans and displaces water preventing rust ...
i use it on my katana regularly and when it rains i use it as soon as i get home .... chain wax it too heavy to be used on an oring chain as it traps dirt which quickly wears out the o-rings reducing your expensive chain to a cheap one
