This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

XCP CHAIN LUBRICANT quickly penetrates the links and sprockets to lay down a thin, even and non sticky film, designed to keep the chain lubricated and protected. The non-sticky film allows for easier dirt rinse off, when cleaning. Suitable for motorcycle, ATV and other motor driven chains. Suitable for road and off-road use.

REDUCE FRICTION, MAXIMISE POWER

The powerful formula is built to withstand extreme pressure, reduce friction and minimise the long term effects of wear maximising the power output of the chain.

RESISTS HIGH SPEED FLING OFF

Due to the formula’s unique flow properties, an ultra thin film is laid down on the chain, with minimal ‘pooling’ of liquid and high fling resistance.

As take_a_look says, gear oil and a paintbrush to apply. Better and cheaper than all chainlube sprays. Only point to them is if you carry the stuff with you on a tour. Sealed chains need external rust protection only.

Rubbish, gear oil or diesel or whatever old wives tale people push about using cheaper options has been proven inferior to dedicated products.

Not 'rubbish' but you are entitled to a different opinion. If a modern sealed link o or x ring motorcycle chain has the lubrication sealed inside each link, why would it need any additional lubrication? The only areas which can benefit is the interface between the roller and the sprocket, Since the forces involved with when a roller goes around a sprocket your additional lube disappears immediately. There only remains the question of protection from oxidation, which gear oil does as well as anything else. Many motorcycle manufacturers and chain manufacturers recommend using sae80 or 90 in their own manuals. The only advantage that a quality spray lube gives you is the lack of 'fling off' and portability. I think if you view the video you just posted, the reviewer actually says the same.

Wrong

Using oil on your chain is not worse than dedicated sprays

The most important part of chain maintenance is how often you do it.

Some people will fully degrease their chain and clean it and use expensive sprays and then just leave it.

Little and often is more effective.

Ive tried them all, and the best way by far for me is to just put some oil on, but often.

I actually prefer to use thinner oil, as it doesn't fling around as much as people say, unless you're using way too much. And it actually keeps the chain cleaner because when some crap gets on the chain then it will fling off.

Thanks.

Would any 80w90 suffice? Do you have any further reading I could do? (I just bought my first bike)

I don't have any reading for you, other than bike manufacturers and D.I.D recommending such method in manuals and other rider feedback over the past 10-20 years. There is the Fortnine video linked above and a few from this channel.

From my experience you have to apply after every ride, otherwise my chain went dry much quicker than after using chain lubes.

I have found I only need to do this if it rains heavy. I check my chain before every ride as it is, so a few seconds to put the paint brush over it is nothing.
