Chain oiler on KLE 500
 
Hey!

I have recently bought a Tutoro chain oiler, as I hate those spray on crap's that only make chain sticky and attract dirt, and have finaly fit it to the bike. The oiler is a very good qualitiy and compact size. It has also been the cheapest I could find, at only 40€ deliverd. Here are a few pictures:

The oiler itself is a manual one, where you have to open and close the neddle valve everytime you go on a ride and stop. So i have decided to set a electro magnetic valve in between (picture 3). For more info on how to instal it on KLE follow THIS link, I am lazy and I dont have the will to write everything again here (copy/paste doesn't work as pictures are too big).

Cheers, Ghosty!

I also fixed the same chain oiler, but the discharge outlet different, my problem is the oil splitting on the tyre. Are you having the same problem?my one the drop on the chain just before the sprocket.

I do get som oil on license plate and left side of the sub frame but not on the wheels. I have a bit to high flow set getting around 400km per fill.

Look at your discharge outlet, it's just at one side of the chains pins, are the oil distribute evenly to all length chain both side? Maybe possibility the oil being slitting by moving sprocket just before the oil dropped on the chain link.

Chain is oiled in the middle where it touches the sprocket, thats the only place that oil has to be. Sides are dry, and there is no need to oil the sides of the chain.

It's good as long as it drips oil in the middle of the chain.
