This is my second chain oiler, the 2.0 version. Chain oilers are used to lubricate mechanical pieces automatically, so I made one for my own bike. It has several advantages.
• Longer life of the chain.
• Constant lubrication, ideal for rain days.
• And the possibility of use a lighter oil, like SAE 5 or 10, ideal for dusty roads.

Step 1: Materials

You will need:
• Aluminum tube, of 22mm (7/8”) dia. 15cm (6”) long.
• A “Polper B12” vitamin flask.
• One silicon tube, like those used by doctors for serum.
• A cork.
• A needle 48/18, it’s the biggest I found, has 1mm dia.
• Seals
• A piece of rubber or Styrofoam.

Pretty kool idea. I'll be really interested in seeing how you have managed the feed indexing with changing cogs. IMO, you should iron out many things and apply for a patent; there is some money to be made from this.
I think i wanna do something like this on the old gs
What about the valve? I only see it in the picture How much is the oil consumption anyway?
well, the valve will not use this version because I do not keep the bike for a long time. valve is a hose to draw blood, and strangle the hose to cut off the supply. respect oil consumption depends on the viscosity, I use 5 and SAE use two tanks per month. The tank has 60 cm ³ Im sorry if you dont understand me, is because i dont speak english very well, i have to use what i now of english and the google translate.
dude, dont worry. your English is good.
Nice.going to make one for my self in vacations.
What a neat idea, looks great. Good thinking and thanks for sharing.
