I use nothing......a dry chain collects no dirt. In the the last 5 years of racing I have never replaced a chain or sprocket due to whare.......it's one of those subjects than can be agrued for ever like break-in procedure and what oil to use.
NOTE : I ride in dry conditions, if you get you quad wet and covered in mud I do recomend oiling.......see below
If you do oil your chain spray the oil from above on to the lower run as centrifical force will push the oil into the chain rather than flick off.
I typically just use a chain lube out of a can. But was recently told that the proper procedure is to clean the chain with WD40, then oil the chain with 90 weight oil, then spray it down with chain wax to hold the oil in.... Man, you are probably right this is one of those discussions that could go on and on, but I have been riding for over 30 years and have never done that process. Not saying it is bad, just never had enough time to do all that!:nuts: I think I'll keep spraying.....
