    Installing Cobrra Nemo 2 chain oiler

    Got around to installing this today. First decision was where to locate the reservoir. I didn't want it on the handlebars but wanted it neatly located but accessible to operate on the move if necessary. So decided to mount on nearside here - arrow indicates the bolt position I'll use . . .



    Only it needs a longer bolt and spacer - see original and replacement . . .



    Here is the reservoir mounted . . .



    I wanted feeder tube routing to be as neat and secure as possible. This photo shows a channel cut into the under swingarm chain guide which provides a good method of securing . . .



    Tube entry to the swingarm secured with a simple tube clip . . .



    And another used under the swingarm . . .



    And finnaly the dripper itself attached with a couple of cable ties . . .



    All in all pleased with the result.

    Wait until them sticky clips get dirty, they become non sticky very quickly especially on the textured surface

    + 1 on BabyD's comment  - my "sticky bits" came off real quick on that swing arm surface and I had to revert to a cable tie alternative

    Fortunately the two cable clips I've used are not essential to the security of the tubing, they are cosmetic as much as anything. The tubing is well located by 3 secure attachment points - the cable tied dripper, the under swingarm chain guard and a cable tie on the frame at the front end of the swing arm. I'll obviously keep a close eye on things initially.

    Hi how is the cobra. I bought the same one for a  previous  bike and never used it so thinking of fitting it to my multi V2 after washing bike yesterday and finding fling all over the place using spay can oil.
    What oil are you using in the cobra.
    The manual for V2 recommends shell advance chain lube! I can't find this anywhere.
    Thanks

    Cobra works great and I like how you control when it operates. I use Putoline chain oil. I donít think itís critical - any reputable make should be ok as long as not too viscous to flow

    .....and my Cobrra is still in operation and works well however I only tend to use it when touring as it does produce fling on the rear numberplate. I prefer to use dry lube instead but when touring its much easier to use the Cobrra and saves packing a spray can - and one Cobrra fill will last a week . I just fill it with auto gearbox oil - I read a long article on chain lubing a while back which tested every sort of lubricant and the conclusion was that gearbox oil was actually best of all

    Hi, thanks for that, I've watched a load of the chain reviews too and agree, i Used a spray recently and the fling is so messy so i Think i may start on the gear oil and go very lightly.
     I'm surprised you use lube at home tho and cobra when away. Its a messy job compared to my last beamer shaft drive. lol
