I just wanted to see out of interest what brand of chain lube & cleaner everyone used. I normally use motul but just thought if there were any better options out there for my beloved 899
WD-40 does wonders with removing that crap! simple wipe off.I've noticed with the lube that came on the bike when i picked it up, it's completely coated the underneath of the tail section & was so tough to get off.
I wonder what ducati pre lube/grease their chains with before they first send them out
I've used WD-40 several times on the underside tail fairing and have not noticed any degradation in the paint. I've also used it on the carbon chain cover and on the rear wheel.. no issues at all. Although be VERY careful of course to not get any on your tires! (The use of WD-40 was recommended to me by the master tech at Beverly Hills Ducati)Haven't picked mine up yet, only ordered last Saturday and was told it would be 5-6 weeks although did have a call yesterday saying it's due here in 3 days so picking it up next Saturday!
I always use Wurth dry lube and will immediately clean the chain off and put that on when I get it. I was going to use WD-40 to remove the mozzarella but am not sure if it's safe to use on the Arctic White paint? Winter (or anyone?!) - are you able to confirm please?
