I usualy pop it up on the rear stand, put it in gear and let the idle spin the rear wheel. Then use an old toothbrush with the WD40 while it is spinning. Then kill the bike. Wipe it down to get excess WD40 off of it then pop it back in gear and spray it down with wax. This way the chain is warm, waxed and ready to ride.

IMO proper application of the lube/wax is more important than the brand

Ive always heard that wd-40 helps to rot out your o-rings. is this true? and if so, why does everyone do it?> (yes, i know from experience that it works great.)

also, whats the difference between chain wax and lube and why should you use one or the other?
