WD-40 after cleaning the chain. Don't spray it on your rear tire by mistake! I clean the chain with a grunge brush made for motorcycle chains. Keep your old socks for rags, they work perfect.

put 'er on a rearstand.

motorex brand chain cleaner (let it soak in, then go in with a rag and watch the grime come off)

let it evaporate

then hit it with motul chain lube or motorex racing chain lube

(i prefer motorex cause it smells good :laughing6)

Oh yeah, unless you have a sink in your garage, wear disposable rubber gloves. Makes cleanup a lot easier. I used Motorex 622 spray lube for a couple years. Got tired of cleaning it off the wheels, swingarm & bodywork but it does stick to the chain even when riding in the rain. Water beads up on it unlike WD. I wipe the chain every time I ride through water now.

Arguments about WD-40 verses other chain lubes are like arguing about engine oil types. Everyone has their own opinion but most people agree that regular maintenance is the most important factor.

kerosene to clean the chain... spray it on and wipe the chain with a rag... then spray it one more time with kerosene and wipe again... then break out the old chainwax and spray the chain on the sides and on the backside....

I thought WD-40 was not good for o-rings??? :dunno....
