Luis puts it up on the stand and lubes it with lube and uses a rag to clean it off. Sometimes I have seen him do that with wd-40 on a rag and cleans it.

WD to clean it. Then run it to make sure it dries. Then spray lube.

piarjr is on a distinguished road
I use a spray Yokos and mine with Diesel, and a brush (what a royal pain), then dry with rag, then chain lube (this is the part that I hate of bikes), the gold chain it is better on that department (or it is me ?)

...and if you can ride it before putting on the lube as it sticks better to a hot chain.

clean it with kerosene, then lube with lube of choice.. I prefer the Chain wax, or the pj1 blue label.. both are great for anti fling properties.
