No kidding! I don't think the chain on my DR650 looks that bad.

Is this something you plan on leaving on all the time or maybe just when you fill up the tank?

They're more popular in Great Britain because of the number of days it rains, fog, and the damp conditions

if you crashed and your oil reserve cracked, oil could get on the track. I can say with great certainty that track organizations won't allow that on the track

This is typical with any crash, fork oil, engine oil, radiator fluid, people use chain lube that flys off and they cake that stuff on. So there are many variables that could also leave a potential hazard.

What are the regulations for track on modified bikes, are they not allowed. For instance nos or other kinds of aftermarket upgrades, are these allowed on the track?

If you look at some of the companies that have sold these they are all placed under the seat in a sealed container...

Its really simple, all it consists of is a reservoir under the seat with a 12volt pneumatic valve that automatically will open when the bike is turned on, a second valve to fine tune the drip rate (with this i can make a drip either ever minute or ever 10 minutes approximately). All of this can be done for about $30 and it looks better the the ones ive seen sold for $300 online lol

I think I may have mentioned earlier, but the one on my rental was under the seat.

I bought this one, for future long trips. The lube on an o-ring chain is inside the links and rollers; the o-rings simply seal out the from getting inside.
When you clean and spray with chain lube, all you are doing is keeping the o-rings clean and pliable. You are actually not getting ANY lube inside the moving parts.
So a light drip of oil does it simple and easy..

chain oilers were a lot more useful back in the days befor O-ring chains that have lube in them.

Lots of distance riders can get 40k+ miles out of a chain with an oiler.

just about every courier bike you see that is chain drive is using a scotoiler.
low delivery in the summer, high in the wet and extreme cold

That bike looks way too clean to be any sort of properly ridden.

I dunno, seems like a waste. Especially when I can just do it every 600 miles.

I've been entertaining the chain oiler for my bike for awhile now. I just take a can of lube with me on long trips. I currently have 34,000 miles on the stock chain. It is ready to be changed and the new one is in the mail and on the way.

Sounds like guys are getting some good mileage out of their chains from what I've read. Don't see how that can be bad.

I like to lube my chain only after a good ride where the chain has been warmed up and the lube inside has expanded and been forced out. My thinking is that when the chain cools down it will draw in some of the fresh lube that I just put on, past the o rings where it really needs to be.

Dam come to think about it.....I just put on a brand new chain and sprocket set. It just hit it's 500 mile mark... Should have oiled it up when I got home.
