Every 500 miles. Tons of lube. Wd40 for removing gunk and any lubricant sold will work well. Go take free maintenance class at Motorcycles Unlimited.

good advice the mileage goes by how rough you are with the bike also. so it could be every 200 miles for adjusting or less or more.... also if u get rained on it is a good idea to clean and lube it back up. and make sure you keep proper chain tension at all times.

I try to lube every 300, and do a full clean and lube when I change the oil.

If it gets ridden in the rain I'll do a clean and lube as well.

A scrub brush and a container of kerosene will make you chain look new again. I recommend doing this every 200-400 miles and use a a good synthetic lube like BelRays or PJ1. If you can hear your chain rotating or slapping during take off or cruising it is too loose or to dry. Defiently hit up Motorcycles Unlimited if you arent familiar with the process!
