I didn't bring my beloved Motul chain lube with me and had to buy some Lucas chain lube from a Canadian Tire in PEI (crappy tire for us canucks) and boy did it make a mess! When I reached the cabot trail it was all up the leg of my leathers as discovered by the black mark on the chair I sat in at lunch that day. Sure my chain was well lubed but so was the tail of my bike and rear rim. When I got home my rim had a THICK layer of dirt mixed with chain lube that took some extensive cleaning, WD40 works great for cleaning that mess. I removed my belly pan for an oil change and had to scrape the crud out of my my belly pan and then also went as far as removing my front sprocket cover and removing the thick layer of built up crap in there that had accumulated to the point that the chain was in constant contact with it. I think when I do my own oil changes at 5000kms between the OEM recommended 10k service interval that I'll remove the sprocket cover and give it a good clean in there too.
I hope this tool works for you so I know if I should be ordering one!
Man, it's been a long time since I heard "Canadian Tire" (And Tim Horton's?), I miss going up to Toronto (actually, Mississauga) to visit friends.
Yeah, I think people tend to find a chain lube they like, and nothing else seems to work as good. My experience with that chain wax (Yamalube I think) was bad, I threw almost a full can away after that incident in AZ. The Blue Label I use, contrary to what it says on the can, DOES fling off, but, I have a tendency to use a lot and actually use it to clean the chain too. But, it's never done anything like what you describe from the Lucas stuff! Yikes! Also, I think from now on every time I lube the chain at home I'll also clean off the excess really good like I did this time, something I usually didn't do, so, we'll see if the little globs that get flung off are less.
I'll definitely let y'all know how this works out on the road, as I know some of you also like to ride long distance on their 'RR. I'll post when I get back next week!
