From Who said not too ? In California the Pasadena Yamaha Dealer sold me the Bel-Ray. I used Bel-Ray in the beginning It's a spray. Then I also got a Tube of Motul it's like a white paste and you brush it on and in.

I used soap and water and a thin kitchen brush I purchased from Ralphs. Then took it for a ride to dry off the chain. Then lubed it up. I do it every 300-400 miles.

I use what ever collects less dirt and sand keep you posted.

Told spray on gets every where and brush on don't, so makes no different what you use?

Three dealers near me all use Motul spray on.

Don't worry too much, the factory chain is junk and will stretch and wear out regardless.

Run it into the ground. Need to clean mine after seeing that. Time to get it done.
