Default Honda Chain Lube - No More?

I noticed my local bike dealership was no longer stocking my favotite chain lube (Honda). When Iasked the parts guy who is an old timer there he said Honda pulled it from distribution due to some issue with one of the chemicals in it.

Does anyone knowof a source or whether the actual manufacturers may have branded it under a different name? The parts guy was telling another chemical story of something Honda dropped and the manufacturer decided to vend it themselves.

Or........can anyone recommend another brand that's as light and non-sticky as Honda's?

Thanks.

I've found this stuff outstanding, after reading about it on other bike sites...Dupont Teflon Multi-Use Lubricant. Dries to a wax quickly, no fling-off. $7.00 (11 oz. can) at my local hardware store.

I've been using Maxima Chain Wax for many years....tried other products and just didn't like 'em as much.

Whatever you do, stay far away from that BelRay Teflon ****......horrible!

The Bel ray stuff sucks flings off and gets crap all over the swing arm. . I started using the repsol stuff too and I like it alot.

Yep, the day I went to get more Honda lube and discovered they were out I grabbed a can of Bel Reysince I needed something. I was later in the garage cleaning that crap OFF the chain. Thanks again for the suggestions.
