TS-804 is not a motorcycle chain lube; it's an industrial product, manufactured by T.S. Moly Lubricants in the U.S.A.
"Moly", or molybdenum disulfide, is a product known to BMW motorcycle owners and others who have experienced the nightmare known as the spline lube.
T.S. Moly Lubricants, Inc. specializes in manufacturing a wide variety of moly (molybdenum disulfide) pastes, sprays and liquids, used in all types of industrial lubrication applications.
Like the TS-801 Dry Film Moly Spray we reviewed in this batch, we tried this just to experiment, and because we're always looking for something new, different, unique and "cross-sector"; that is, a product from one market segment that might work in another.
TS-804 sprays out like a foam -- it surrounds the chain with a large cloud of foamy bubbles, so it should actually penetrate rather well into the chain. But the large amount of overspray and very high per-unit cost of this product makes it very inefficient for lubricating motorcycle chains.
The product is really designed to penetrate the wire strands of a cable and leave a coating of moly, so as the cable flexes and moves, the strands slide against each other instead of binding.
Again, this product was tried just as an experiment; it's probably excellent for its intended use, but we don't think it works very well as a motorcycle chain lubricant.
