Fitting Loobman chain oiler
« on: December 31, 2019, 01:40:18 PM »
Hi Guys :031:

After a bit of research and talking to people I have bought the Loobman chain oiler, it only 22 so worth a punt I reckon :084:

I have fitted it on my Evotech twatnav mount and will keep you posted about how I fit the tubing etc. Any pictures of how to fit tubing is welcome

Hi

Just sorting out fitting the tube and nozzle .It a very clever idea, you put  a small ziptie through the nozzle which brushes against the sprocket and I assume the oil travels along it, as the zip tie wears you push more through. I now understand why the small hole is put in the pipe near the nozzle :084: . The longer the length of pipe after the hole determines how much oil drips onto the sprocket per push push of the button.I will fit tomorrow and go for a test ride :017:

Thanks for posting this. I have a Loobman kit purchased over a year ago. It will be fitted to my 800 in a couple of weeks.

Hi Guys

I have fitted the tubing and nozzle, it certainly drips out ok along the zipties, I will go for run tomorrow and see how it performs, but looks ok so far :001:

Hi Guys

Went for ride today and I am impressed with the chain oiler, I pressed the button too many times so chain is very 'wet' , so just a couple of times per 100 miles perhaps OK

I generally press mine for 10 seconds half way through a run. That's usually enough to cover it lol

It varies on how you have the tube routed etc .
I've used it in the past on my older 955i and on 2 bmw F 650's.
For the money its bang on.
