Maxima chain Wax is another great product. It dries as a wax thus no flinging off the chain. This product works great and lasts.

+1. That's what we use on the Bride's Ride, last a long time, no slingin at all:p

I use Klotz KLR spray and have had good luck. Teflon is highly rated but requires more drying time.

Be cautious with degreasers lest you wash out captive, internal grease. Suggest you use the Klotz on this chain, then go to Teflon after you replace it next time.

I need some recommendations for spray on chain lube. I want something clean that doesn't fling (that was a Billy Mays ism, lol). Longevity would be great too!
Great question! I'm not sure of the brand of chain lube on my bike, but there is a lot of messy flinging going on.

How do you know when you need chain lube? Is it indicated by a visual, or by sound?
I am new to motorcycles and chains, but mine just has a dried out look to it. No weird noises, but it might start making them without proper lubrication.

I got a can of DuPont Teflon Chain-Saver, but I want to get a can of their degreaser to clean the chain before I relubricate it.

You might want to consult your chain manufacturer's website to see what they recommend. Of course nothing they tell you will be authoritative as what you read on the interwebs, where absolute accuracy is mandatory.:grin2:

I use BelRay SuperClean Chain Lube......been using it for years!
There's a reason they call it Superclean.

If you want your chain to stay lubricated, even through long days of riding in the rain. And if you hate cleaning dirty, grimy chain lube off your sprockets and rear wheel, then BelRay is right for you too.
