    Query Approved.

    Chain by practical means should be lubricated at the end of the link joints where the O ring is visible, but most people just spray it on the chain, and that's not a bad idea after all. Put your bike in center stand, ENGINE OFF, rotate the wheel manually and spray and the edge of the links, not sides, and keep doing it slowly for the entire chain, you're all set.

    No. Applying grease on O ring is not recommended or oil for that matter, all these spray and or attract more grime than necessary, unless it's a case sealed chain. Just lube it as you would normally.

    Once upon a time, a guy asked a girl 'Will you marry me?'
    The girl said, 'NO!'

    And the guy lived happily ever after and rode motorcycles and watched sport on a big screen TV, went fishing and surfing, and played golf a lot, and drank beer and scotch and had tons of money in the bank and left the toilet seat up and farted whenever he wanted.
