With the kickstand switch permanently by-passed and the bike idling and myself in a squatting position, I squeeze the clutch lever and then just pull Left & Down on the LH handlebar and carrier rack. This will elevate the rear tire to balance point. Then I snick it into 1st gear, still keeping clutch squeezed the tire will rotate and I spray the left & right sides chain lower run, trying to avoid the suspension links & the tire. Shift back into neutral & set the tire down.
By spraying the inner circumference of the chain run, the lubricant has to go Thru the chain, not just on the outer circumference and then fling back off.
Probably takes about 30-45 seconds & done.
Modify at "YOUR OWN RISK"!
Still riding my 1987 KL650-A1. 85,000+ miles & counting
