Which is better for the CTX 700 DCT chain and why? Sorry sorta still new to riding
I have 58,000 on my 14 CTX and still have the original chain and sprockets with very little wear or chain stretch. For about all of those miles I have used the ProHonda with graphite ,lubing the chain between 500 and 800 miles. Alot of rural and mountain roads with plenty of dirt. I don't waste my time cleaning the chain. I have never used the lube with Moly so I know nothing about it. My experience with the graphite is the why.

I have used the Moly since purchasing my CTX in 2014 with no issues. Originally was told the Moly flings less....never tested it. But, you can't go wrong with either choice✌

Thanks, I just ordered a can. But you never clean the chain, just squirt more on and go?

58,000 miles has to go in the Guinness book.
You need to publicize your success

Well, 58,000 don't seem that great to me. I would think anything much less on a street bike would be from abuse or lack of maintenance, not use.
