I had never heard of Motobriiz, but the idea sounded good so I decided to give it a go. Fitting to the Thruxton took a little longer than most bikes probably need. This was only because the Triumph seat is bolted and the chain guide can not be removed without removing the swinging arm. I cut the guide while still fitted to the bike. Very tricky with not much access, but I managed. Fitting the kit took no more than a few minutes after that. Everything is provided. Even a little mixing stick and pad to mix the adhesive.
I filled my reservoir with Auto Transmission Fluid. I use this in the chaincase of my old BSA, so I had some handy. I considered using gear oil, but I opted for the thinner stuff.
Over the next couple of days I did 400 miles. The chain looked wet and oily, but was this just what I had soaked the applicator pad with? No oil can be seen in the feed pipe. Off with the seat, and the reservoir was about one third empty. It works!
Thank for the review Keith and for installing our oiler on a very cool bike. ATF is a good choice. It keeps the chain nice and clean.
I'm a motorcycle mechanic from Vermont and I mostly ride my bike hard-ish on twisty roads in the Adirondacks. Good weather and bad. Before the Motobriiz I would lube the chain every few hundred miles and almost every time it would require some adjustment. I decided to try the briiz because it was simple and economical. After installing and with a new set of chain/sprockets, I've got about 4000 miles on the system and I don't think I've had to adjust the chain more than once in that time. Very impressed, and I recommend it to anyone who does a lot of miles.
Ben, Thank you very much for the kind words and we are happy that you are enjoying your Motobriiz Oiler. If you ever have any questions or issues, don't hesitate to contact us.
I've use all sorts of chain oilers over my 25 years riding and this is by far the best chain oiler on the market. Not needing to bleed the system if you forget to add oil, (unlike a very well known competitors version) is great. By being able to use whatever oil you like, is also great. I just adjust the viscosity depending on the temperature. Chainsaw blade oil, mixed with engine oil works superb. My chain is also kept much cleaner with the Motobriiz system. The reservoir sits nicely under the rear pillion seat and the water trap hides away in the lefthand front cowling. The only way to better this device would be a flow rate control on the reservoir, so I didn't need to change the mixture of oils. But this is a small quibble with a great bit of kit! Well done to the whole Motbriiz team.
Jonathan, thank you very much for the review and we are very happy that the oiler is working well for you. We do have a version with adjustable flow control coming soon!
O-rings keep grease inside new chains for a time but it will all escape. When it's gone, no applied lube can get inside due to those rings. Then that chain is on its way out because the critical interior lube is gone an cant be replaced. If you use a non-Oring chain the Motobriiz will supply oil to the chain that will migrate to the interior and lubricate the entire chain. So with the Motobriiz it will allow you to use the much less expensive non-oring chains with better results. IMHO Motobriiz + Non-Oring chain is the best combo.
Thank you Kyle....keep in touch and let us know how much mileage you get out of the non o-ring chain. Even with an o-ring chain a chain oiler helps keep the oil rings pliable and other non sealed parts (between the rollers and bushings.We appreciate your business!

"This bit of kit does what it says it will do, very well indeed. You can almost get away with fitting a MotoBriiz to your bike and forgetting your lubrication. It’s just happening quietly, cleanly, effortlessly and efficiently as you travel to your next 1,000 mile reservoir refill stage."
I have always been an enthusiastic user of chain oilers but this one takes the biscuit. Easy to install, simple in operation with no fiddly adjustments to make and good long range before refilling. Brilliant!! Also cannot thank Mike Steele enough for his fantastic customer service. Well done.
Thank you for the kind words David. We are happy that all is working out well. It has been a pleasure doing business with you.
I installed the oiler kit back in the spring of this year. The installation was easy. The installation instructions were clear, and the videos were very helpful as well. Right after installing it, I gave the kit a very thorough test with a round trip ride from Indy to the Florida Keys (over 3,000 miles), I packed extra oil and only had to refill it once. It worked like a champ, and the chain was the cleanest thing on my bike. I was thrilled to come home and not have to worry about a messy chain cleanup chore. I also took a trip up to Wisconsin in July and many rides in my area since then, and the chain still looks shiny clean. The kit is holding up great as well (still looks like new). I need to replace the pad now, but that should be a "briiz". I'm so glad I have this kit on my bike. Thanks!
Thank you Heidi. We are happy that the oiler is working well for you. Contact us anytime should you have any questions.
Overall I love how clean an install everything is. No one would even know it's there. I can see oil on my chain and reassure myself by running my finger on it which always comes up with a nice oil smear.
After using this system for over 2000klm I think this system should come fitted from factory,it works, it's simple and not expensive, so the only reason for it not to be a original accessory,is that the chain will last longer and that's not good for sales..;-)
Thank you Sam. It's a pleasure to have you as a customer. Ride safe.
Owning a motorcycle without the MotoBriiz unit is akin to owning a computer without a keyboard. Sure, you can spend countless hours manually lubing your chain with "difficult to clean" sticky spray waxes that fling all over the place or you can spend a tiny bit of money on one of these MotoBriiz units.
I was skeptical at first but after spending yet another day trying to get chain wax off my rear wheel and chain - I decided to give it a whirl. I can hands down guarantee that I will NEVER own another bike without one!
