Chain Lube

I am curretly using PJ1 Black and lube my chain about 3-500 miles. I lube it after a ride so it will be absorded into the orings on a rear stand. Now I am getting black drops under the bike out of the front sprocket cover, What is good to clean up these spots and the bike. I usually use S100 products but have not tried them yet on this bike.
Questions are:
What are you using? Any one stand out product?
Range in miles to lube?
Cleaning method on rear wheel, chain and sprocket?

I just spit on the chain... that seems to have worked so far! LOL...

I use the Sidewinder Chain lube. I've used it on my quads and it truly is a great product. the only reason I am using it though is because I had two extra cans left over from the ATV days.

Sorry for the huge picture but I don't want to save these images to the work computer for resizing!

I use PJ1 Blue Label on the 919. I will hose it down every few hundred miles after a ride then wipe off the excess.

When I got my bike, it was dripping chain lube goo from the front sprocket area too. I took off the cover and found 1/4 inch thick gunk in there. Scrapped all that off, use the Blue Label, and now, it doesn't build up. It smelled like the previous/original owner was using gear oil on his chain. That could explain the stink and the slinging.

Press Any Key To Continue.

WD-40 will clean up the spots.
