Lowes Home Improvement Stores in my area carries it. It's in the tool section.

If you can't find it locally, you can pay more ($15 shipped) and get it from Amazon. This is their chain-specific stuff, and if you're coming from the normal moto lube, the regular teflon spray might throw you off since it disappears, but the stuff is still there and you end up reapplying too soon.

Their chain saver is pretty much the same formula, but goes on a little thicker and one that you can visually see your rings still having lube. Amazon.com: DuPont(R) Teflon(TM) Chain-Saver Lubricant, Net Wt 11 oz. (CS0110101): Automotive

It's some good stuff too. I tried all kinds of chain lubes and it seemed to last the longest and keep the chain pretty clean. Only reason I quit using it is I got lazy and started using an auto lube system.

idk dude, i use the regular can (and on everything else that needs lubed) on my chain all the time. have no issues with it commuting daily in the rain. then again, i have no comparsion to the chain specific version. might have to grab a can just to humor you.

OP, if your major retail stores dont carry them, check your local honda dealer. that's where i got mine for a while and was $9 for a can which was pretty good.

Dupont Teflon lube

A note for Canadians. After a long search the only place I could find it was at Lowe's. $7 and something. Walmart does't have it.

I used the small chain saver bottle on my new 17/44 setup (after getting that factory wax crap off). I think it works great! Chain doesn't have a lot of gunk on it, and I've easily gone 500 miles or so since then.

Good heads up MM! I didn't even notice that on the new cans. I still have a full can of the older formula. I might go to Lowes and see if they still have a stock of the old stuff.

Saw it on another forum. I figured I would pass it on. I still have a couple of cans in my garage. Maybe Dupont will come to their senses before I need more.

I use the DuPont Motorcycle Degreaser for Chain and Sprockets and the Teflon Chain Saver.

I spray the whole chain with Degreaser and let it rest for 20-30 mins and then I spray again and simultaniously wipe it down with a rag. Let it rest for another 20 mins or so and then apply the Chain Saver. Another 20-30 mins and then I ride.

How often (every XX miles) are you guys lubing the chain?

The owner's manual ways every 500 miles.

I use the 2nd trip meter for chain lube interval.

Dude, I brought a new thing of the chain saver squeeze bottle this afternoon but completely spaced and forgot to give it to you. Lowes has them now though, if not Walmart for sure.

For sure! If you can come up our ways again for a day or two we can hit some the roads around here. I was thinking of doing 14 all the way across the southern part of Washington sometime soon if you want to tag along of a portion of it. Just ideas at the moment, not sure when

I ran across this stuff when I was searching for something else. Looks a whole lot like the Dupont Multi-Use stuff. Looks to be available a lot of places online and sold at REI, Dick's Sporting Goods, and lots of other places that sell Bicycle stuff.
