Chain maintenance

How often should I be lubing my chain? I've been doing it every other Friday after I wash her

I've been told every 300-500 miles. Also depends if you drive on dirt roads a lot or not.

usually every 600 miles. Wouldn't hurt doing it sooner, but from my experience 600 miles is the minimum. It's a very easy process if you've never done it before. Shouldn't take more than 10 minutes

I lube mine anytime I hit water or wash it. I'd rather too much than not enough

lol every Friday might be overkill, but you're not hurting anything

Robert's got it right though, and you should wash it every time BEFORE you lube it. Or else it just makes it dirtier and will actually hurt the life of the chain
