Cameleon Plus Chain Oiler on 2012 V-Strom

I just posted a video of the installation of a Cameleon chain oiler on my 2012 V-Strom. I'm sure I made mistakes but thought somebody might want to get some ideas on how to install one. When on a trip I hate oiling chains.

Thanks for sharing this information. An oiler is something I have been considering adding - for longer road trips it does take the hassle out of chain maintenance.

Four wheels move the body. Two wheels move the soul.

Great video. Is the loop in the feed line on the top of the swingarm to prevent a gravity feed once the bike is parked? My Tutoro Oiler does not have this.

Purely a guess but that is what I think the loop is for. The specify in the instructions to place it like that. I would think it facing down would be the same but I didn't ask.
