the Grease Ninja :thumbsup:

Back in November 2012, I got wind of a chain lubrication device called the Grease Ninja. Seems like I watched a youtube video of it, and thought it was worth a try, especially at only $15.
I got the impression that Tom, owner of Grease Ninja (and maybe My Space? ) was a start-up who had a good product that was not just another 'better mouse trap'.
I'm really glad I bought it, and can't believe I waited so long to try it out. The only reason is because I was procrastinating rigging the apparatus to the spray can.
That was easily tackled in about 3 minutes.

You guys and gals, this thing is a no-brainer!

This simple little plastic block is engineered just right to do exactly what it's supposed to. It comes with various straws to fit different size spray nozzles, thatís handy! And it allows you to hold the can straight up for when your spray can is almost empty. The Philips screws: take them out and blow air or WD40 through to clean all the ports. This is a well thought out design. imo.

I think I'll make back the $15 this year in saved (premium high priced) lube. The first time you use it, you'll see how easy it is to get adequate coverage without ANY overspray and no more than 5 or 6 drops of waste.

My endorsement is completely voluntary - I have no interest in Grease Ninja.

They just make a product that really works and is simple, fast, and very cheap.

- It takes a few seconds to figure out to turn the wheel moderately slow.






- This is all the spill I had. Next time I'll have half that or less.




- My chain is a 520, this picture gives a visual of how well the ports line up with the Orings.
They offer another size for 525 or 530 chains. Even bicycle chains. If I was still mountain biking I'd get one for it too.

Re: the Grease Ninja :thumbsup:

Looks like a great tool and love the idea of no over spray on the back wheel.

Re: the Grease Ninja :thumbsup:

I would assume that it is actually a Teflon block and not merely a hunk of plastic... good idea actually. Like Kevo pointed out.. not having overspray all on the back wheel and tyre is a lovely thought =)

Here is my cheap ass method of chain lubrication without over spray. I have taken a used paper towel roll and slit it length wise. Then install it over the chain under the swing arm and spray away through the length of the slit. I'll take some pic's and send the dimension to nder.

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.
