Oh sorry, i thought you meant the exhaust that was rusting - me and english :-)

I am more worried about rust on the "shiny" adjustable shockasorber underneath, i was told to use wax on the shiny things on the bike. I use the expensive ultraglozz

not internet rumors, i know people who always used wd-40 and their chains snapped. regardless, might as well get the products made for the task, doesn't cost a lot

edit: i'd rather pay a little extra for the chain cleaner and lube than replace the transmission or get my leg hacked off when the chain snaps

You are right Doublergirl, keep away from wd40.

Theres something bad in wd40 that the o-rings dont like.

I use new gearoil to wipe clean.

It's a DID o-ring chain, not some no-name brand. Some people use the DuPont Teflon china lube DuPont Teflon Chain Lube - webBikeWorld without the messy "fling" or attract dirt like some of the wax based lubes.

I couldn't agree more. Chain cleaner is like $8. Not exactly bank breaking if you can afford a new $4000 bike.
