Ive been told just throw some WD-40 on there and it will be good, but is lube for the chain way better or would it be ok to stick with WD-40?

WD-40 i've been told is water based and is not good for your bearings or your sprockets at all. I use WD-40 to clean all the old lube and dirt off my chain then go over it 2-3 time with black label chain lube.

I've heard bad things about spraying your chain with WD.

to clean my chain i use an engine degreaser and wipe it all off. then apply some white spray grease. u can get from any shop that sells that kinda stuff. there are specific things out there but i was recommended to use spray grease. not a lot. just a bit all round
