Exclamation *BEL RAY CHAIN LUBE QUESTION*

I just bought some Bel Ray chain lube and applied it to my chain just like instructed. My question is......is it suppose to make your chain a light Blue'ish white'ish color? About 5 minutes after i applied it i looked at it and my chain is freakin a light blue and white color. Does it go away?

thats how you know its on there. when the chain looks shiny again, its time to re-apply the chain lube. its recommended every 600 miles, after any rain, but most importantly, anytime it looks shiny and un-lubed.

As long as your chain is lubed and well maintained, it really doesn't matter what it looks like.

Well, unless it starts to look rusty... then it matters!

Yes, but like they said - if the color goes away, reapply. You want to keep it off-color.

If the residue bothers you, you can lightly wipe the side plates off with a rag with a little WD40 on it.
