Smile primer bulb chain oiler

Hey all. My old 08 DL1000 just turned over 80,000 + coming back from Bike Week. She' farkled like all good storms, but the nifty one I like best is the primer bulb chain oiler. Used an old fuel cell from a leaf blower, mounted vertically inside the left side fairing opposite the coolant reservoir, primer bulb at 11:00 of gas cap in plastic mount, with 1/8" fuel line hidden behind panels to mid-point of chain beside helmet lock. Other than smoking like a 2 stroke from excess use of nifty new invention and hot exhaust pipes, never was too keen on moderation, seems to be working fine. May have to limit my enthusiastic use of afore mentioned bulb. Love that slickem. Which being synthetic gear oil and engine oil 50/50 mix. Try it you'll like it. Pics to followThanks to betterhalfs efforts. I do well to type and not get lost while riding.

Chain looks pretty dry to me.

'F'-ing brilliant. An on demand oiler that most of us have laying around in the shape of an old weeder. I've got at least 2-3 in the barn.
