Elf Moto Chain Paste
Strange stuff, this. It’s a grease-like paste in a tube.
There were no printed instructions on this one, so we can only assume that it’s designed to spread on the chain using a brush or rag.
Elf Moto Chain Paste really needs to be applied on the inside run of the chain so it will work its way out as the chain spins.
How the paste/grease ends up working its way down into the side plates on the chain is uncertain. It just seems like a lot more work and mess for questionable results.
Perhaps it actually does a better job at lubricating a motorcycle chain — we’ll never know. But one thing’s for certain: it’s much easier to use a spray.
However, you have to give them credit for trying something new…
After using this product, we wanted to see how other types of grease might work for motorcycle chain lubrication, so we bought a tub of Motorex grease (review) and Maxima grease (review).
Neither of these is designed for lubricating motorcycle chains, but we wanted to explore the concept anyway. These true grease type lubricants are far too messy and sticky for motorcycle chains.
