    endurance chain lube question

    I just got my new 2023 S1000xr. I won't be able to ride for a while because it's winter here for another 6 weeks anyway. It has the endurance chain on it. It came with the white lube coating on the chain. Should I clean the white lube off before I ride it or just clean the wheel after it slings it all over the place. Not sure if cleaning the wheel is any harder than cleaning the chain. My other question about the endurance chain is, are you all using the same chain lube you were on the regular chains or is a teflon or ceramic lube better for the endurance chain? Thanks in advance for your experiences. I can't wait to take this out for a rip.

    i clean and lube my M chain just like an ordinary chain, just less frequently. It doesnt rust like an ordinary chain and looks better
