That's why you need to dry and lube your chain. A properly cleaned and lubed chain is going to last a lot longer than the metal on metal that WD-40 is going to leave you. It's a solvent and not a sufficient lubricant for a chain or bearings. While they advertise it as a lubricant, that's for the likes of the hinges of tools, doors, etc. That being said, WD-40 does make a chain lube, but it's very different from the big blue can everyone thinks of.
