  • taking oil touring

    I use 20w-50 to lube my chain, and I use this oil can at home:

    But it's huge and messy when I take it in a saddlebag. Any suggestions for taking a bit of 20w-50 touring for doing the chain?

      And put that in a big ziplock bag or two.

          Get a Scott Oiler or make your own similar method and cable tie it somewhere on your frame

            Or build one yourself.

                WD40 in a small can. It doesn't get much easier

                As a recent convert to WD after more than 30years of silly chain lubes I can only recommend that u give it a crack and stop wasting ur time!

                    Touring....at the end of the day, spend 5 mins going over the bike [ oil/coolant/tyres and so-on ], including giving the nice warm chain a spray of your favourite WHATEVER. I prefer a small can of chain-lube, pick your own poison.

                    Bike all good to go first up, and a decent spray on the chain the night before will see you through the day.

                    Clean bike when you get home.

                        how many k's touring or more importantly roughly how much oil will be needed over the entire time? perhaps a liquid syringe, or as mentioned a small sauce bottle, maybe even if you have some of those mini shampoo bottles like from hotels? any of those should hold it fine in the relative short term.

                          Sauce bottle and syringe might be goers, will give them a go. Sottoilers are great but a bit $$$ for me.

                          About 1500k away from home, I like to do 500k intervals on the chain as the oil does fling off faster than store bought chain lube. Thanks for suggestions.

                            This ^^ 100% If you are doing lots of km's then a SO or similar can't be beat I've been using one for years and apart from the odd oil spot on the driveway it's been awesome
                            If you really want cheap and easy then as has been suggested a syringe in a plastic bag would do, you can also get something like this vv

                              I got about 65,000 km plus out of a chain with WD40 in 3 years. Chain did about 77,000, but the first 12 were with lube.

                              A single can, i'm pretty sure too.

                              By the time i got > 25,000 km i usually get with lube i got real slack with applying it.

                              Unlike lube, its a lot easier to clean off the wheels, too.
                              “Crashing is shit for you, shit for the bike, shit for the mechanics and shit for the set-up,” Checa told me a while back. “It’s a signal that you are heading in the wrong direction. You want to win but crashing is the opposite. It’s like being in France when you want to go to England and when you crash you go to Spain. That way you’ll never get to England!” -- Carlos Checa
