I've used Maxima for years, sorta messy but dealt with it.
Since getting the new Z and seeing some of the Youtube "tests", decided on trying Dupont's spray for awhile- couldn't find it locally so ordered 2 cans off Ebay.
My ZRX chain was so nasty, cleaned it for a good 45 minutes with grunge brush + kerosene then air hose, being gold it shines again!  That spray goes on thin, I hit it again few hours later, can't even tell it's on there.
See how it does.

Dupont update:

Did 272 miles on the Z with no visible fling off- there was some white residue on my sprocket and garage floor (didn't shake the sh*t out of the can as recommended before using)  :157:
Wife's Ninja 650 had good results and no mess at all.
The ZRX chain was cleaned and totally dry, 2 coatings about 3 hours apart and have rode that for almost 100 miles so far with nothing showing on the swing arm.

I think it's pretty good as far as staying on- longevity is yet to be determined.

I find the DuPont still looks like it's working at 4-500 miles so I'm not worried if a ride takes me beyond that point.  I try to lube it at the 350-400 mile mark tho.

If you can get Wurth cheap or want maybe the best product there is, get it. It's synthetic wax that dries immediately. But I think I'll be mainly using CRC chain lube pro, it's an awesome product with 1/3 of the cost of Wurth.

Good shout, will give it a go when I run out of my Wurth stockpile lol.
