Sprockets and chain make continuous contact through the rollers on your chain. Little or no lubrication between the rollers and the teeth, cause your sprockets to wear, which in turn causes the chain to wear more quickly. For a long life of your chain and sprockets it is therefore important to lubricate them regularly. This can of course be done manually with chain spray or chain grease, but on a long motorcycle trip this is an annoying and often recurring task. A chain lubrication system offers the solution!
Most chain lubrication systems lubricate constantly. So even when you are riding a sandy track or when you are waiting for the traffic light.
With the OSCO chain lubrication system you decide when to lubricate and when not. By pulling the plunger, oil drips on your chain for a few seconds, which is enough for a few hundred kilometres of riding under normal conditions. After a heavy rainstorm or a river crossing, you lubricate once more and when you go into the sand, you deliberately do not lubricate.
Lubricating with oil has the additional advantage that it keeps the chain clean because sand and dirt fling off the chain.
