Kerosene to clean it, and PJ1 Blue label to lube it.

Wd40 to clean w/ the Grunge Brush Grunge Brush: We have a large selection of grunge brushes. followed by a wd40 soaked red shop towel. Lube w/ quality chain lube. Currently, I'm using Pro Honda Chain Lube w/ Moly.

I clean with WD40 and then use Golden Spectre or something like that from my local Honda shop. After I use this can though I'm going to something else. It tends to fling and run out of my front sprocket all over my fairings. I keep having my brother steal me Vericlean VC-1 Defluxer from where he works so I can clean it. Stuff costs about 130 dollars a gallon and 18 bucks a can but it turns oil into water and it just wipes off. It's also safe for any surface on the planet basically.

+1 on the WD-40, then whatever chain lube w/molybendium.
The key is lube every 3-4 tanks of gas. If you do that, no matter
what you use, you'll get the max milage on the chain.


P.S. Thought before I say this, but "***, grass or gas, pay your way thru life."
-1 on the boosting stuff from anybody. Golden rule applies to businesses, too.

Clean with kerosene, brush it on and hose it off. Lube with 90wt gear oil. Old school, cheap, crude, and not that environmentally friendly. Describes me and my chain maintenance methods.
