As much as I love Amazon for having pretty much everything a need it dosen't half end up draining my account. Thought I'd give the WD40 stuff a shot cause lets face it standard WD40 is great for everything else so I have expectations.

I always clean my chain with normal WD40 (not tried the specific chain cleaner, not sure why not though!) to clean the chain and the WD chain wax to lube it with. Seems to do a good job :-)

Heard a lot of conflicting things about using standard WD40 on a chain. I needed lube anyway so thought may as well order some at the same time. I have heard Paraffin is another thing to use to clean a chain.

Yeah Paraffin works too. Some people think WD40 will damage the O rings but I have seen some tests done of O rings being left to soak in WD40 and nothing happened to them so thought sod it I will just use that then haha. Some people still think it causes damage though so would rather avoid using it which is fair enough.

Let us know what you think about the chain cleaner :-)
