    I think the turkey baster could be the start/reservoir of a manual chain oiler, if only BMW sold one. sigh

    I started dabbling in the CF dept. a few months ago and have made a few trinkets I like for my BMW F800GS.

    but they should be handy.
    A stainless catch held with stainless hardware on a spacer with an o-ring to keep it from rattling. One on either side of the sub-frame screwed in to a factory bolt hole(Could use a riv-nut to put them someplace else) Way easier than trying to fish the rok-strap around the frame rail. Rated for 90 pounds.
