oh absolutely not, LOL, I think I would be frowned upon as I only lube the chain before every ride and hardly ever clean it until it gets REALLY nasty. its a sealed chain and a heavy duty one at that, it was designed for this. if the rollers and o-rings have lubrication then it will be good, but if theres so much crud to the point it starts flinging off everywhere then off it comes for a good deep cleaning
