I use a Scott Oiler

First few fills were the Scott Oiler products.
They seemed to work fine, except for being a tad messy until I got the flow rate adjusted correctly. After which it still left a noticable film on the LHS of the back end.

Have tried ATF, which is 1/4 of the price, and readily available.
Seems to do the job, but does "throw off" more than the Scott products.

Have used spray cans of chain lube before, but there are better methods.

Years ago I used a product named "Duckhams"
It came in a tin about 12" dia and 6" high.
It contained a 'Secret Formula" of 11 herbs and spices, suspended in a foul smelling grease compound.
Place on the stove top hotplates, and heat until the grease liquified.
After cleaning the chain with kerosene, immerse it in the grease tin.
Simmer for 10 minutes, then hold it above the grease tin and allow to drain until cook.

The downside to the Duckhams treatment was that it could only be done whilst mum was out of the house, because it caused a stench throughout the house.

"The specific purpose of the desmodromic system is to force the valves to comply with the timing diagram as consistently as possible. In this way, any lost energy is negligible, the performance curves are more uniform and dependability is better."
