PJ1 Blue works for me, every 500-1000 miles. I apply it, wipe it off, let it sit overnight to dry. There is some fling-off, but it's not much.

A friend gave me a can of Yamaha "no-fling" chain lube. I tried it once and it made a big mess. I threw it away.

Gunk

I found a chain lube made by Gunk that I really like.

Used PJ1 before, but the first time I took the sprocket cover off, I decided it was time to look for something different. The Gunk stuff does not seem to sling off as much and the chain also seems to be a little cleaner with it on there -- I check it often because it looks like there is nothingon the chain sometimes. Its there and its working well.

Scott Oiler. Install it, fill it, forget it. There is some fling off but not enough to bother me and the chain stays nicely clean and lubed.

Fit a Scottoiler and add (I love this word!) a LUBETUBE under the seat, and forget about it all for a few thousand miles!!

Works a treat on all the bikes I have or have had.

+2 on Maxima Chain Wax.

+1 on BelRay also, I used that before I switched to Maxima.

I prefer Maxima because it flings less; however once you get it on, it's on for good. It's REALLY hard to clean off.

I did the research

Dupont teflon dry wax lubricant!!!!
No doubt about it ... this is the best lubricant for your chain.
I spent a long time researching this.
Dry wax lubricants are the best.

* doesnt collect dirt
* looks very clean
* great lubrication
* dry wax doesnt fling off

A dry wax lube is the best thing to use on an o-ring chain. You are not trying to lubricate it - O and X ring chains comes pre-lubed inside the rings.

The purpose of the material applied is therefore to keep it clean and free of corrosion, so that the o-rings do not become compromised. A good cleaning and periodic application of a sealant are your best bet.

I use Castrol Chain Wax, occasionally Motul.

I have read several threads on this subject where the benefits of WD40 are made. It seems that many guys are using this in place of a chain lube.
Anybody here using it for the chain?
