Steven, I would test the oil if it is O-Ring safe first. Get a normal o-ring and soak in the oil over night and see if it does expand (if it does, it's no good). It would be useful to have another similar o-ring as reference. I've seen heavier grade gear oil, like a SAE140, if my memory serves me right.
I am using 80W90 gear oil also and manually applied to the chain. Once every full tank is done, I would apply oil on the o-rings and rollers completely. Between the next fuel intake, if I see the rollers are a little dry, I would apply on the rollers at the lower chain side (& not every rollers), right before the chain enters the rear sprocket for a forward motion. I find that with this method, the oil is well distributed after a ride and does not cause the oil to fling out so much. Scott Oiler are not cheap.
Anyway, I am thinking of using the DuPont Teflon Lube spray which is O-ring safe the next time. Found them in ACE Hardware at QueensBay Mall, selling for RM26. It has got good reviews.
