I just got my new bike and went for a short ride. When I got home i began to check it out there is a real thick stcky grease on this chain. should i put some with a little more viscosity on it, some thing thinner Thanks

They put some sort of protective coating on new chains so they do not rust in shipping. I do not think it is the best lube though. I would give it a good cleaning and them coat it with your lube of choice.

Good Luck!!!

before I install a new chain. Use solvent to get rid of factory lube. I use prolink or hgnr but the lube is up to you.
