I don't think this one has been mentioned before; please forgive if I missed it.
On bikes that have endless (no discernable master link) chains from the factory, I usually clean the side plate of one link with parts cleaner, and then put a nice big dab of a bright color (yellow, red) automotive paint from a paint pen or the like in the middle of the side plate.
This helps me to find a starting/ending point for chain maintenance items like cleaning and relubing. Counting links gets pretty old, pretty fast.
