    Chain Oiler . . . . .

    Ridealot offered: Same way you lube any chain.

    Is it an automatic oiler or manual?

    speaking of lubrication, does anyone know if the BMW motor is good at oiling itself during extended wheelstands or stoppies?

    Go soothingly through the grease mud, as there lurks the skid demon.

    That sure looks like the Martin (Michigan) US131 Motorsports park just north of Kalamazoo. Wish I'd heard about it, I've have gone to see it

    I think BMW is starting to get the attention of lots of younger folks! LOL

    BMW has a winner with this machine. I had the pleasure to ride my 08 ZX10R to the dealership and ride the demo RR. The differences were remarkable despite similar weights and such. As most know the sportbike scene is constantly changing and the manufacturers are extremely competetive. It will be interesting to see if BMW is in this portion of the market for the duration or has the RR been a one off to demonstrate technological/engineering competence. In any case all others were caught flat footed. Check out the ZX10R blog: http://www.zx-10r.net/forum/

    If you have just washed the bike or are just going to lube the chain, warm it up by riding. That will also get trapped water out. Lubricate the top of the chain on the bottom level, between the large sprocket and smaller sprocket. Use a rag where you are spraying using it to wipe the chain and catch excess. Different lubes are out there. I begin lubing at the master link so I know when it is done. I have never removed the chain to clean it but do frequently use WD40, a rag, and a chain brush to clean it. This extends the life of sprockets and chain as well as adds to performance. I am not certain what the S1000RR manual indicates but having been around sport bikes awhile these are just some tips we have followed. Hope it helps.
