There is also a Dry spray Lube availible at Home Depot's.
the thing is, spurs & pinions are non-porous.. unless they are made of wood or something similar..

so what are you trying to say i dont get you..

Too Much of a good thing can be bad.

Apply a few drops and spin the Gears to spread it around. Never had a buildup problem this way.

(I did read of Guy that made His own Plywood suspension Arms).

I also want to comment that the 'White Lightning' does NOT in anyway seem to be superior to the other Dry Lubes that I have tried over the years.

but what ever you do... no white lightning...

peter
Peter,

What technique do you use with Krytech on putting it on?

Does it work on belts as well as beveled gears?

krytech is a bike chain lube just like the white lightning, except that it does not turn to wax, just put a few drops on the gears and then work them in until the liquid dries.

i have not heard of using it on belts...

Default Which lube is Better?

versa;

After 4 years of racing and trying diffrent products, I have NOT come up with a favorite yet.

They ALL seem to work very good, with the ability of Not attracting Dust & Dirt being my #1 consideration and ease of application as the 2nd.

Which one of these lubes from Finsh line do youy reccomend?

http://www.gearshark.com/finder/deta...ttle/5570.html

I think your thread shows that it would be beneficial to use the Finish Line Teflon-Plus Dry Style Lubricant - 2 oz. Squeeze Bottle .

Finish Line Krytech Chain Wax sounds like it is the one that hardens.

Any thoughts or reccomendations
