I'm doing it every 500 miles (800 km). Too frequently?

Clean - every 300-400kms
Lube - every 1000-1200kms

Assuming dry riding only and no excess road grime.

Every few weeks. Not religiously, but looking to see that it is nice a lubed. contributing to a smooth, quiet ride. Also riding mainly dry.

Ok. I lube my chain after every ride. I use the spray on wax type lube (Maxima chain wax) so it doesn't leave a mess.

Now call me old fashioned -
I check it at least once a week. Usually Sunday just before lunch and after the aperitif.
I clean it if it looks grubby. And always lube it after cleaning.

Depends on the conditions you ride too. If its dusty or dirty or rain, then you have to clean it more often.
