Kerosene is the best to use as a cleaner, followed closely by WD40 or chain cleaner like Motorex. Kerosene is not a flammable, it's a combustible...flashpoint above 100F, whereas gasoline is much lower like 30-40F. It's safe to use.

I warm up the chain for 5 mins with a quick ride, use Motorex cleaner and a grunge brush/rag to clean the chain, then use Motorex chain lube which tacks up pretty good and will last for a good while. Wipe off the excess with a clean rag and you're done.

At motorcycle unlimited when you get the oil change, you also go through a 41 point inspection that includes chain lube and adjustments.
