Re: the Grease Ninja :thumbsup:

The lube acts as a lubricant and protector for the o-rings though. So while the grease is inside that is for the chains pins/links, you still need to protect the outside of the o-rings themselves from the outside elements. That s why you don't need to load a chain up with a thorough coat of lube and have it then flung all over the place.

However, you are cleaning the chain which is good for the sprockets and lubing the roller pins but it doesn't significantly accelerate wear to neglect it once in awhile.

My last chain I removed simply because I wanted to go back to the stock size chain and sprocket teeth.
^^True

I put my bike on rearstand, click it into 1st and let er roll. A towel behind the spray area soaks up the overspray.

Guys, cleaning and lubing a chain need not be an engineering challenge.

Can you please give me the exact brand of paper towels and the location of the store where you bought them so I can replicate it? I would hate to use the wrong brand and achieve sub-standard results, or God forbid, be sued for patent infringement, you'se guys are brutal!

Re: the Grease Ninja :thumbsup:

Here is a product I bought over 20 years ago, haven't used it in awhile so I couldn't find mine for a picture, that's why I posted this guys video. It did contain most of the over spray, I just haven't seen it since I moved 10 years ago, lol. I don't know if it's still for sale, but I doubt it, all I could track down were you-tube videos. It has plastic bristles on the inside to brush off the crud, but I used to clean my chain first and only used the oiler on a clean chain, just so I wouldn't have to clean the oiler every time. Oh, and I used PJ1 chain lube, not WD-40, nor did I have the problems this phuktard had making it work. I used the string it came with a looped it around the foot peg, but then again I'm not a 'Busa genius! Sometimes you have to be smarter than the tool.
