Motul chain clean & Dupont Teflon Chain Saver here.

OP - It sounds like you need to keep up on your chain maintenance a little more (?), there's plenty of advice floating around on the 'net and on the message board about "how to" clean/lube and "how often" to clean/lube.

No matter what "method" you select, pick out a service schedule that fits YOUR riding needs and stick to it so your chain and sprockets will be happy.

WD-40 is an excellent water dispersal (hence the "WD" part) and grease/grime buster since it contains solvents; I use it to clean my chain after a ride (although I prefer mineral spirits). However, as a pure chain lubricant it comes up short. You need something a little thicker that stays in the nooks and crannies to lubricate the o-rings. There is a good selection of specific o-ring chain lubes on the market. I prefer Maxima Chain Wax myself.

Thanks for the tips, was planning on using gasoline as the degreaser LOL but will pick up an extra bottle of wd40

i've used a multitude of different cleaners and lubes. usually i get 12-15k out of a chain.

one of the guys on another forum recommended just using wd-40 period. this last chain swap i switched over to just it myself.

i've noticed the chain does not pick up near as much grit and grime between services when i just use wd-40. in fact it is so little i have to remind myself to service it. rim stays really clean, etc...

jury is still out on the life expectancy of the chain just using the wd-40 but i have noted the change in my service log.
