I've only replaced the chain once at 15K. Current chain is 10K and it looks like it will go to 20K. Nothing special - just random brands of spray wax lubes. I relube seldom, just when I can hear increased chain noise or actual squeaking (as I do on my bicycles).

So some caveats besides random internet guy posting, my experience is mostly bicycle chains. I almost never ride my motorcycle in inclement weather or on wet roads. I also limit my speed to 65 mph and would assume that has chain life benefits over faster riders. I do accelerate briskly, but shift well before redline.
