uk trailer guy Can vouch for Scottoilers. Good piece of kit and pretty common over here, though having only just got my klr, I haven't fitted one to mine!

Rockyrider Anyone here use(d) an automatic oiler?

I had one on my 1990 XT600e that used vaccum pressure to control the oil flow. Later on a 1995 F650 I had a simpler version that used a vibration sensor.

This thread got me looking for modern versions and they seem to be comparatively hi-tech now.

Other versions that are simpler but not automatic:

I thought it was funny the vid starting out with what looked like a brand new chain. I've only cleaned my chain once and I used a bristle parts cleaning brush and diesel.

Just as a side note on safety. I seen photos of what was left of a guys hand who thought it would be a good idea to get the rear wheel up on the centerstand and clean the chain while running it in gear. "Mangled" is the term to best describe it.

Found it. Not for the faint of heart, click at own risk....... http://www.gixxer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=242261

Tom Schmitz It does look interesting, but it seems pretty spendy. Maybe there is a less expensive source, but the distributor sells them for $70.

Lockjaw Interesting. It's like there was an unholy union between what I got and a grunge brush. Never seen that before. The only gripe I have about my red machine is that the "brushes" are rubber not real brushes. Still works well, though.

klr4evr This looks like a slick system.

Lockjaw You'll be glad you did. You gotta put a zip tie or something around it to keep it closed, but it makes it so easy.

mwatson That's a great idea, thanks for sharing. I was looking at my chain after my ride in the hills tonight and thought, "man, I need to clean and lube that thing". Now I must buy one.

Easy chain cleaning

Had one of these for a while. I like the grunge brush, too, but this is pretty dang easy. Attach hose to WD40/Chain Cleaner nozzle, spray, and spin. Pretty slick.
