FF as Motorcycle Chain Lube?

Will FF work as Motorcycle Chain Lube? Has anyone ever tried it or would there be any draw backs?

I find it flings off faster than a thick grease. If you ride slow it might be ok.

Warm up the chain and it should soak right in. Wipe off any excess and you should be good to go.

The longer you let it soak in, the better. If you get a little sling off on your pants, you'll smell great.

we use to race in mud, we tried everything on our open chain drive transfer case, fluid film was the only lubricant that worked for us!

http://www.amazon.com/DuPont-Teflon-...nt+chain+saver

http://www.lowes.com/pd_213197-39963...ont&facetInfo= (i read this one works better than the chain specific one, i dunno, this one does clean really really well)

I will use nothing else on my ride. nothing..... period.... contains several world standards in lubrication such as moly. with the power of Teflon. Nothing more than very fine suit sticks to it.

but, it does not soak into the metal, which im reading is how im reading FF works. so that being the case i can imagine using these two products together would be a VERY POWERFUL combination. FF to protect the metal. dupont chain saver to clean and lube.

in the old days guys would bake their chains in a pot of teflon, you can get galons of FF in liquid form right? could you do the same (without the heat)?
