Jus curious, how often everyone oils there chains, what kind of oil they use, tips or anythin like that.

For me it's part of a ritual I do the night before I go on a ride. I give it a "pre-mission" check to avoid unhappy problems (are there "happy" problems?) and part of that is a lube and wipe down of the chain. I don't use my gixxer as primary transportation so it might see 400 miles on a weekend but next to none on the weekdays. If I lived in your area I'd lube it more frequently if I were using it as primary in the moist air.

I use a teflon based lube......its good cause it doesn't run all over the place. Then I spray WD-40 on a rag to wipe off the excess.....its shines up gold links really well also! I lube the chain about every 150 miles or so.........

I do mine after each ride...I use a teflon based lube applied to a rag...I go over the chain and rear sprocket. Keeps things clean and rust free! It just takes a few minutes and is just part of cleaning up my gixxer after a ride...
