I have tried about every kind of chain lube on the market and sidewinders chain lube is far superior to anything else out there.
If you want to spend alot of money, sidewinder makes a smartchain now that every part in it is impregnated with lube and they claim it never needs to be lubed. I have one on my raptor but I still bought a can of thier lube to put on it now and then.

This might sound a little odd to everyone but I got tired of the
Maxima and other chain waxes/lubes trapping dirt in and on my chain.

So here's what I do after each race. Clean the chain (regina o-ring)
with a brush lightly and then grab a quart of Mobil 1 Syn I go over
the entire chain with my oil soaked hand to make sure it's totally
covered and then let the quad sit all week until the next weekend.
Seems to be keeping my chain in pretty good condition. After half
a season of using the chain wax my chain was so gunked up you could
barely bend it.

It's fairly cheap (cause a quart lasts forever)
And it goesn't get all over my swinger and trap dirt all over.

That's just me.

I use some Liquid Wrench crap that's pretty runny but doesn't fling off. I think its like 4 or 5 bucks a can. The power washer does take it off though, but I luber up before every ride. I have 60 hrs on the stock chain and it's starting to show a little wear, but it's still really flexible and doesn't kink at all. I use to use J-D or something, came in a brown can and looked like that expanding gap sealer insulation crap. It got EVERYWHERE when I put it on and it wasn't supposed to fling and it got EVERYWHERE when I rode. Seemed to trap a lot of dirt too and it was 9 bucks a can.

You need to make sure that Liquid Wrench stuff is safe for rubber O-rings.
