    +1 for Wheelie. That is the dry lube, I will never use anything else on a chain again. It does not attract dirt so the chain stays much cleaner.

    The manual says to use kerosene to clean the chain. It's kind of messy.



    For cleaning, I use WD40. Spray on until the chain is thoroughly wet, then use a rag to wipe it off.



    To lubricate, I use what Wheelie uses, the Dupont Multiuse lube with Teflon. It's available a Lowe's.



    There are many motorcycle chain lubes on the market, and everyone will have their favorite.

    Yes. There is also this 'thicker' version:

    I bought both the blue and the yellow and at least my can of yellow is exactly the same consistency as the blue...

    There was a comment on using carb cleaner on the chain - if you have an oring chain, carb cleaner will dissolve the rubber orings so DON'T use carb cleaner.



    Take the chain off an soak it overnight in varsol or solvent. Scrub gently with a toothbrush.



    If you have an oring chain you can buy a spray that is light enough it penetrate in behind the orings. If it's not an oring you can use a thicker formula spray or even oil. But wet lubes attract dirt so some don't like them. I offroad in the mud and spray off the chain after each ride, let it dry, then apply a spray lube. That keeps it well lubricated in the dirt (kind of hard not to attract dirt when you are knee deep in mud....) and keeps the rust away. But I do this each trip and wash down after so I don't mind a greasy messy chain (arr arrgh).

    I probably need a new chain very soon. What about the DID product?
