I use a Scotoiler but I don't mind the bit of fling off if I've got it set a bit heavily, all comes off when you wash the bike and may even give it a bit of extra weatherproofing. I bought the Hein Gerrik bargain bucket of bike love earlier this year and in there was some kind of chain spray but I don't like the look of it when it's on the chain Ian, you're welcome to it if you want it...

Been using that Wurth dry lube for a l-o-n-g- time and no complaints. Had a Scottoiler on my first Thunderbird and it made cleaning a nightmare (alloy rims). Dialing it to a satisfactory setting was inconsistent, depending on temperature and the way the wind blew. Waiting patiently for my Loobman via this fine site. I,ve heard nothing but good about them. I also have some EP80 and EP90 gear oil that have been prisoners in a dark corner of the shed for far too long.
To each his/her own.

Honda recommends 75/90 gear oil for lubing the chain I think. I've got a Scottoiler on mine and it's also set pretty heavy. I run the chain through a rag once a week and lube it with gear oil, even though it has a Scottoiler. Must be doing something right as it looks as new as the day I fitted it...

I use a scottoiler and do not worry about the rims being greasy, after having one rot away always cover em in ACF 50 anyway , but other bikes that I have i use the Wurth dry lube on seems good to me ,

I use Wurth Dry Chain Lube, everything else I've tried makes a mess.
If you try the Wurth lube, make sure you apply it to the instructions on the can!
