Our BSB Reporter, Oli Rushby, has used the WD-40 Chain Wax on his Suzuki V-Strom 650 GT for the last twelve months and he's given it a 5* rating. Here's why.
WD-40’s chain wax has become a go-to product for winter chain lubrication for me, a coating every week or so has resulted in zero corrosion on the chain of my Suzuki V-Strom 650 and best of all, the ‘outstanding anti-fling properties’ WD-40 claim, seem to ring true – it doesn’t fling off at all!
A 400ml can lasted me the best part of a year, which I was really impressed with. I used to go through chain lube like nothing else, but even in the harshest and wettest conditions, it’s still lasting. With a normal lube, I’d find myself having to re-apply after every few rides. Not anymore!
It’s a bit pricier than an average chain lube, but it does last longer so you probably save money there. The product is white, so leaves a white film over the chain, which is what protects it (so you can’t really grumble) but admittedly it doesn’t look the best. It also takes quite a bit of cleaning off, but if you clean your chain on a regular basis, this isn’t a problem.
There's lots of maintenance products on the market, here's another we've tested .....
