I've tried almost every chain lube known on the market so far, and chain cleaning products. This stuff is provides the best 2 or 3 season chain protection solution on the market. What makes this stuff special is that it changes viscosity during the chain's operation, during it's usable life span after application it continuously re-lubes the moving parts of the chain due to it converting from honey to liquid and back again. No other lube that i've tried does this, it will also do this type of physical transformation when used on hot days, so carefully measured application to prevent drips or spatter must be observed! This stuff can be messy, I laugh at the person who called it "Liquid Bubble Gum", in a way they are correct. I can only attribute the negative comments about it's messy nature mostly to improper application. The viscosity of this product when it comes out of the nozzle is very low, like hot honey only more fluid than that. Within 60 seconds of coming into contact with the air, it turns into a highly viscous honey-like consistency. The only way to properly apply this stuff is to use the application tube supplied and very light controlled pressure on the button, following the contour of the O-Rings on the chain. If done properly overspray is all but completely eliminated, and the viscosity of the chain fluid actually aids in controlling the flow rate during application. If you ride in foul conditions it does require frequent cleaning of the drive line assembly but it is a superior product for preventing rust from forming on the chains of street bikes. I prefer to clean the drive line with Honda branded chain cleaner, it is the most effective cleaner i've tried, I have tried many! This product is not appropriate for any use other than motorcycle chains, don't be foolish and use this on a bicycle..

Like it's black label cousin this stuff goes on clear and does a very good job of protecting the chain. I am not entirely clear on how these products differentiate from each other in terms of usage or performance but i've tried both and find them to be very satisfactory. My instructions for proper application are no different then the black label, overspray and wasted lube are eliminated by using the tube and very light controlled pressure on the button as you follow the contour of the roller plates and bearing surfaces. I've stopped having problems with this stuff getting on my rims after I changed how I apply it. Proper application of this stuff can extend the life of one can tremendously and keep your swing arm a lot cleaner. The claims of dirt not sticking to it is unfounded, no chain lube has ever managed to avoid having stuff cling to it but it's within acceptable tolerances. Huge props to motorcycle superstore BTW! They have had these products appear on my doorstep within 48 hours, considering it's on the other side of the country thats pretty darn amazing!

I have old bike calls for 90 grade gear oil. Everyone locally has 80 grade.Can't use it. I been using it for the last 11 years. Great g-o but very pricey.

Came out looking good- no runs, very smooth.

Got a can with no pressure inside. So instead, I punched a hole in the can and made my own pressure pump (out of a Windex pump). Once I got the product in the cable it worked well.

Just to clarify the review by JOHN H of OH: The Fast Black "E" is correctly described in the SuperStore web page as a urethane, not an epoxy. The PJ1 site does not state the formula so I asked them, to wit: "Our “E” Engine & Case finishes are a Poly-Urethane Enamel based product." by Todd Carroll in Sales. And the "G" formula is correctly listed as PJ1 EPOXY, and is available at SuperStore. AND PJ1 Fast Black are excellent aerosol paints.
