The top one. The new can is shown on the left:
DuPont Motorcycle Chain Lubes for 2012 - webBikeWorld

I tried some the re-labeld stuff. I was junk. See Post 12 above.

That page might not have been updated?

Have a good one.

So the Teflon Chain-Saver Lubricant isn't good stuff? They claim 5 times more durability from using it. I'm going to give this a try. Even if I only get double mileage out of using it, then that's good.

Maybe "news of its death were greatly exaggerated"? Amazon and Lowes still have the stuff. It is really fine for motorcycle chains.

Paul,

That is the new formula. Not good for chains not good at all. See Post 12.

Have a good one.

If you worry about keeping your Starbucks bike spotless use the teflon.
If you worry about impact cushion and lubricity of the steel chain and sprockets use this.

Prior to Oring chains which won't allow lubricant into the vital pin area I'd get 30,000 miles out of a chain. I get about 20,000 on the nifty Daido O ring chains with this stuff.

Maxima Cleaner and Lube

I gotta say that I might just stick with the Maxima cleaner and lube. The cleaner is surprising, removing everything with a water rinse? Sounds like weird directions, but the chain was cleaner than I could get it with a towel. I typically use WD40 to clean. That can will be staying on the shelf nowadays.

Yeah, my bike will find it way to Starbucks on sometimes, but folks generally avoid it. They’re afraid that the dirt will jump off like cooties.

The whacky thin lube is less tacky than the old DuPont stuff and is holding solid. I’m happy for the first time since the OP.

Have a good one.

If you're going to use a chain lube, don't clean the chain first with WD-40. It leaves a residue of light oil that keeps some lube formulations from sticking to the chain. Instead, clean with what the chain manufacturers recommend—kerosene (paraffin).

Worlds best chain lube is gone.

If I run out of diesel or kerosene I'll use WD40 as a degreaser when I'm washing the bike. But I wash the WD40 off with soap and water and then blow it dry before lubing with my favorite chain lube of the month. Like Shazzam said, the WD40 puts a film on the chain that can keep the good stuff from sticking.
