I give up. Which chain oiler should I get?
I go through chains faster than I go through tires on my DL650. My current chain has about 14,000 miles on it, and is stiff, kinky, and makes awful noises when I pull away from a stop.
It's my fourth or fifth chain on this bike, and through experience, I've tried to be more and more aware of maintenance. I lube it every tank of gas. I clean it occasionally. I keep it the tension within spec. No joy. Every chain has failed at just over 10,000 miles. Other riders are getting twice that.
It's my first chain-drive bike, so maybe I'm doing something wrong. I don't know. I give up.
I've looked around at chain oilers; prices are all over the board. Some have electronic control, some are gravity....
Can you recommend a good chain oiler?
