Just placed an order using my Visa - if anyone is still not convinced that this seems to be a good solution to reduce the "oil fling" make sure you take a look at the Youtubers review, Based on what i saw reduces fling 2/3 good enough for me placed the order this AM will report back late March with my 2 cents

In one of the posts I eluded that the final chain drive is my biggest pet peeve with the Strom - I have ordered a Tutoro oiler and this item hopefully this will keep me in the family for many years to come.

I just got it in and installed it, along with a Suzuki center stand. I have the chain guard installed in the more rearward position, just to give the chain more clearance.





I don’t know how well that plastic clip will retain the chain guard. I’ll have to find a better way to secure it. That’s the weak point and obviously the reason you’re not supposed to do any heavy off-reading with it.

What kind of chain lubrication system do you use?
Looks wet!

I use S100 chain spray

Maybe reversing the axle so the clip is around larger axle bolt?

OM is probably right - depending on the bike your ride (650 - correct) you will have to look into this solution

On top of the two replies above and before you undertake anything else - find the Dr Vstrom YouTube channel and take a look at his review of this product. On it he references this issue !

Duh, it's designed to transfer funds from your wallet to their bank account.

Srsly though. I at first misunderstood it as intending to keep the chain clean. Fat chance, says I, if you're going on dirt at all. Dust is the herpes of the riding world.

Then I realized it was basically there to prevent chain lube fling.

It's solving a problem almost as important as the scourge of toast sweat.

This is a less than constructive post. Anyone who is running a chain oiler will get a considerable amount of fling on the rear or the bike over time, this should do a good job at keeping that at bay. If it is not interesting to you, so be it. Those that find it interesting can report back on how well it works.

I have ordered one and the fit is very secure but you do need to follow the instructions and have the bolt on the left side of the bike. I can report back how well it works when winter is over but I suspect others will get there first.
