    Is this still regarded as the best dry lube or has anyone got any other recommendations? I am stopping using the WD40 waxy one as it too messy and I don't want to fit a scottoiler.

    I used the WD40 one once and it was possibly the worst I've ever encountered. Sticky and horrible to clean off later.

    Funnily enough the local Triumph service place used the Muck Off Dry lube but I had read in a few places that the Wurth one was supposed to be better. Will give the Muck Off a go and at least I have an excuse to buy a new UV torch.

    I should have said having used both here is my take.
    I seemed to get through wurth quicker, had to shake the tin a lot, it’s quite potent, tad more greasy, more splatter on the wheel but not by much and seems slightly more difficult to remove from the rear sprocket when you clean it. I’m still on my first can of muck off, which by all acounts is lasting quite well. The other advantage is it comes with a short and long straw attachment, which is more handy for the inside of the chain. I think the muck off also offered better value for money last time I checked. The muck off doesn’t seem as tacky so not sure whether that is a good thing or not i just go off what my uv lamp tells me. I found more places stocked muck off v wurth too

    I stupidly used a cheap "dry" lube I bought at a bike jumble - needless to say it was worse than the WD40!
    Now I use chain-saw oil brushed on after cleaning with paraffin :cool:

    Haven't got my first Triumph, yet, but I've had a chain drive Honda NC700X DCT since 2016 and rode rain or shine, and it slept outside until the snow arrived at which point it hibernated. The Maxima was good stuff and I just re-applied every 500 miles or so.
