Chain looks great so far, but I've only been using it for 3K miles. Other people I know use it exclusively with great results.

There's so many variables as to why your chain wore out prematurely it's gonna be impossible to nail motul for this IMHO.
u can keep the teflon stuff on longer then the thick stuff!!! i do mine every 1k and 10k miles later still looks new!

I lube each O-ring individually from the inside of the chain and then spin the wheel by hand for five minutes, then the bike sits overnight. I always clean and lube a warm chain. Put almost 10,000 on my 600 and didn't have this problem
