How many?

Jeez. how many ER-6F's did you buy?

Of course you can clean and lube your chain, that's kind of like asking if you can wash your bike and not have that Affect your warranty...

to degrease the chain with a tooth brush/paint brush.

Gear box oil to lube it with another paint brush, after a good ride when the chain is warm.

No warranty issues my friend.

WD40 fucks up O ring chains. Chain lube is a waste of money.

See your original string for the better advice.
