    Paul, the book looks like you only loosen the axle on the sprocket (right) side of the bike. The other end of the axle on the left side has a smaller hex. Does the axle need to be tightened on both...

    I agree that the whole point is to save time and make it quick and easy to oil the chain much more frequently that you would by hand. That is why I am thinking about the cheap and simple solutions in...

    I have also been thinking about adding a chain oiler to my 2003 Dakar when I replace the chain and sprockets. This will probably be at my 18K service, likely next year.
