Chain Oiler Benefits


 

Chain Oiler Benefits

Properly lubricated roller chains can reach an efficiency of 98% or greater in the transmission. Unlubricated chains will significantly decrease performance and increase chain and sprocket wear. A common cross section of the modern motorcycle chain is shown below. The internal parts of your chain are well lubed from the factory. The lube is held in with an o-ring or x-ring. This slows the wear of the pins and bushings as they move against each other with very high forces.

Chain Oiler Benefits

The outer parts of your chain are also well lubed from the factory. This slows the wear between the rollers and bushings and the rollers and the sprockets. It also keeps your o-rings pliable to prevent wear and cracking. This helps to keep the lube inside.

This lube wears off over time and will exit your chain as it travels around the sprockets. Replenishing it enables your chain to last longer.

Not to say that manual lubrication is not effective at all, but continuous lubrication keeps your chain in top working order. It will also ensure smooth operation and promote maximum life. The comparison below shows the motorcycle chain oiler benefits in time and cost savings.
