I've been using the new WD40 professional range, but on your recommendation the other week, a big can of PJ1 has just been delivered today! :046:

I haven't ridden the bike since I cleaned and relubed, so it may be a while!

Probably overkill but the first thing i do once i have my lid and gloves off at the end of a day  is give it a little squirt before locking it up.

Chain still nice and warm when i do it and wipe off any excess !

Then i have a cuppa and regale susan with tales of derring doo and how bloody good it is  :001:

The wurth stuff is well regarded in the sports bike world but i have always had concerns as to its wet weather performance

I fitted the electronic Scottoiler to mine.  It has done an excellent job over the first 2,500 miles.  Have used these before and they pay for themselves with the extended life of the first chain (although this electronic job is not cheap to buy, twice that of the vacuum original).
Scottoiler were ace in helping with pictures and installation.  Certainly a satisfied customer here.
