Question Looking for Blue or green Primary fluid?

I was thinking about primary fluid and clutch actuation today and can't remember what lube I saw that was blue or green being used so that you instantly knew where a leak was from...

Redline shockproof (red) in Tranny

20-50 or straight 60 (undied) in motor

Blue, green, ? in primary...

Any suggestions? Any color of wet clutch/compensator/chain lube thats not undied or red/pink.

Thanks, Brice

And am thinking b&m trick shift (blue) in the primary...

Amsoil straight 60wt. is to heavy for the primary. Amsoil dealer here, the company does not recommend 60wt. in the primary.

Just because someone else had a leak doesn't mean you will. I wouldn't even worry about it until you have a leak and then only if you are having a hard time locating the leak would you use dye in the fluids.
In most cases leaks are easy to find.

I am weird, the idea of having color coded lubes just in case gives me a warm fuzzy and reminds me of when I did it racing... Nothing like making something REALLY simple...


BTW Anyone using a 60 wt synthetic out there in HOT weather?

You can put all the gold fluid you want in the oil hole and it's gonna turn black. I'm betting that b&m fluid will be black as well after about 500 miles.
