Grease Ninja

I bought one of these Grease Ninjas. I figured for the money, I'd give it a try. It works really well by directing the spray downward, directly onto the chain. No overspray. No mess.

It's not something you install. You clean the chain and place the device onto the chain as you rotate the tire. The oil sprays through little vents in the device directly onto the chain. No mess. I used it with the Dupont Teflon and it worked great. I'm happy with it.

I'd never seen one before either. Looks a good idea.

Huh. With one motorcycle and six bicycles and a rowing machine, all with chain drive, this might be a good idea.

The Glee has a 525 chain, correct?

Right. All V-Stroms come with 525 chains from the factory.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s
