I don’t like the WD solution either. It’s a good cleaner and temporary lube, not a lasting lube.
My sliding screen door rollers are proof of that. Simple and quick but has to be repeated regularly.
I suppose it might be acceptable if it were sprayed on your chain every 100 miles or so but who wants to do that. Not me.
I’ve been using chain wax on mine since new. The only adjustment ever needed was at the initial 500 mile breakin when I learned the chain was set too tight from the dealer. I’ve got almost 9,000 miles on it now.
Same goes for my sons last bike, a BMW S1000 RR.
when he traded it in, the dealer thought we had put a new chain and sprockets on.
I’m sold on the Maxima chain wax.
