This is all you need plus a water hose. Brand is Maxima.

Spray cleaner on a COLD chain, get it cleaned up with the grunge brush, spray off with water hose.

Ride bike round the block to get the chain warm, spray the chain, and wipe off the excess

My method.

Always heard that stiff bristle brushes are BAD for O-ring chains.

For O-ring chains:
  • Use short soak in kerosene (5 minutes)
  • Wipe off w/soft rag
  • Blow dry with compressed air
  • Apply proper viscosity oil (Honda Spec for my bike is SAE 80 or 90 gear oil)

Non-O-ring is different

I used to just spray on more lube everytime, but the run off and gunk build up was really nasty looking so I started using kerosene + grunge brush to clean it. I don't clean the sprockets, but the chain itself looks much better. Still looking for the perfect chain lube though, have a couple new cans to try, but I only do this every 500mi so it'll be a while before I get through them I think.

http://www.webbikeworld.com/t2/motorcycle-chain-lube/ shows in the readers response thing the effect WD-40 as a lube/cleaner has, but motorcycle chains are nowhere near as stressed as that and most chains are made strong enough to make up for it anyway.
