Picture of Chain oiler V2 (2.0 version)
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.

What about the valve? I only see it in the picture How much is the oil consumption anyway?
notingkool (author)  BobS4 years ago
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.
