I was just wondering what is the best way to apply lubricant.

Do i just get a rag and wipe off any 'junk' off the chains and then apply some lubricant on the chain and roll it through the different gears.
Also, how much lubricant do you put? Just a bit on every chain link or just the bottom half??

Are any Australian made?


I have read many here use Inox as the Aussie option.

The "Lanox" or MX4 is a better option it has more lanolin in it. Dries to being quite dry and only a little greasey.
