Dirtbike Chain Lubricant?


New member
Any recommendations on what brand and/or type of chain lubrication should be used? I have drove myself crazy today trying to research it on the internet.

Interested to hear anybody's experiences with any of the various brands such as Maxima Chainwax, Motul C3 Chain lube Off Road, or whatever you are using


Chainsaw oil, cheap and works well. With the chains we have today ( o and x ) there is not much need to put anything on the chain other then to keep them from rusting.
Fortnine did a really good video on the subject.

With an X or O ring chain white grease is sealed within, so this is no need to lube the links or chain. After washing the bike, chase out water and moisture with a generous spray of wd40 which leaves a short term protective film against rust. Any lubes on a dirt bike chain will simply collect dust and dirt on the chain and not add any lubricating effect.
