Back to chain life...it depends on which lube you use, how regularly you lube, where you ride and how much grit it picks up, how abrasive that grit is, how well and how regularly you clean the chain, how often it's wet, and how heavy you get on the throttle. A Vee is helped by upgrading to a wider, higher load capacity 530 chain and sprockets--a Wee doesn't have the power to benefit from the 530.
Anyway, chain maintenance isn't that big a deal, just another semi-minor thing to do regularly.
