    I do realize many of us use WD40 in regular chain maintenance..........most be a dozen posts on the topic.

    ADVRIDER has more than 50 threads on the topic along with a long term WD40 test and oring compatibility.

    Chain maintenance and servicing is one of those HOT topics including cleaning, lube choices, service interval, replacement interval.

    WD40 works wonders on the rear wheel - excess chain lube, oil/road grime, you name it. Just keep it off the tires. Also helps isolate any pesky squeaks without leaving an oily residue.
