Ya know there is a lot of controversy 'bout chain lubing. On another forum a lot of people said they just clean it with WD-40 and wipe it off.
Even some of the mfrs said in a rider magazine article last year, that O-ring chains mainly need to be kept clean. Chain lube won't get in past the o-rings any more than the lube inside the links gets out.
The main advice was to keep them clean and lubed to protect against rust.
I use maxxim chain wax.

I used to use WD40 but a week later after I put it on there was rust...everytime. I just went and got Maxima chain was and that stuff is great. Be sure to heat the chain though, like 1FastGSXR said, just like 5 minutes of hard riding does the job.
