Not a mechanic, but I would say probably not... You will need to get the chain adjusted after the first few hundred miles, but that is normal for all new chains. If you wash the bike or run through rain or water, I would lube the chain with whatever chain lube you prefer.

Ok. I was told at the 500 mile mark, but heard somewhere else on my third ride out to put some chain wax on. Thanks!

Chain maintenance is something that needs to be done on the regular. If you ride when it's raining or just when it's wet out; you'll need to lube the chain afterwards. It's something you should check every couple fill ups, too.

Officially though, the Yamaha Service Manual lists chain maintenance (checking slack + lubing) as something that should be done every 500 miles and after washing or riding in the rain/wet.

This is the first bike that I've owned which had the chain rust on it. Although I may have been more diligent on chain maintenance in my younger days with those other bikes.:)
