I wasn't expecting to get much more than 25K on the 800 compared to the 30K+ I get on the 955 because of the smaller front sprocket. 800~16 compared to 955~19.
Not using a Scottoiler, no, but I lubricate the chain religiously every 200-300 miles (or after riding in the rain) using the Dupont Teflon multi-use lubricant. I used that stuff on my Wee-Strom's original chain as well, and that chain lasted about 32,000 miles (though the front sprocket did need replacing around 25k miles). I attribute the long life primarily to that lube -- it's great stuff.
The Tiger's front sprocket is worn, but not terrible yet. I'll replace it this winter. But I'm undecided on the rear sprocket -- it's not showing much wear at all, so I may leave it on.
