I assume your applying the lube the night before u ride, it stays on much better cos the solvent used to work in a spray can evapourates..
keeping the sprockets and chain clean means I have had chains and sprockets last years on all sorts of bikes.. (i avoid drop the clutch wheelies too, that helps )

I would not use brake cleaner. I'm not sure about that one but a lot of solvents will deteriorate your O-rings. You would be better off with Simple Green.

The guy at Sidewinder downplayed the use of WD40 on chains, of course he wanted to sell me their lube at $15/can.
My two cents!

If you ride in a lot of mud or don't use an O-ring chain, this may not be the best method.
