What's the problem with spray-on lubricants?
Why are classic gravity-feed chain oilers so difficult to adjust?
Does continuous lubrication increase chain life?
What about fling-off?
If we have a lean setting, what happens when it rains or the roads are dusty?
I don't ride that much, so what benefit can I get from a PRO-OILER?
How do I decide on the best setting?
How do I know when my chain is properly lubricated?
My chain is over-lubricated. What do I do now?
My chain has gone dry. What do I do now?
started to rain. What setting should I choose?
1. Do I need the
reed switch and magnet?
2. I already
have a PRO-OILER with a reed switch and magnet setup - can I switch to the
speedometer sensor version or add a GPS module?
3. What are the
differences in operation between using the GPS module, the speedo sensor vs the reed switch?
GPS Module (Satellite controlled chain lubrication)
1. Benefits of the GPS Module
2. Installation of the GPS module
Reed Switch and Magnet
1. Why do you
recommend fitting the reed switch to the back wheel?
2. I already
have a Sigma bicycle computer reed switch and magnet fitted to the front wheel.
Can I tap into this wiring for the PRO-OILER?
3. Does the
position of the reed switch matter?
4. What is the
best way to fix the magnet?
1. Is there a
"best" placement for a nozzle?
2. Can I place
the nozzle on the front sprocket?
3. Why is a twin
nozzle better than a single nozzle?
4. Does the
nozzle material matter? Can I use a brass or aluminium tube?
What oil should I use in the PRO-OILER?
Do I need to use thinner oil in winter, like in a
gravity feed system?
Can I use thin penetrating oil like WD40?
What if the pump doesn't pump after winter break?
Is there an ideal position for the container?
What is the maximum oil level in the container?
Can the container be mounted with the cap pointing
Can I locate the container on its side?
What's the best way to refill the container?
Why do I need a breather?
Is the breather tube routing important?
What is the best breather tube routing? Any other tips?
should I do if I see the breather tube is filled with oil?
I already have a chain-oiler. Do I need to replace those
lines with ones provided?
I have air bubbles in the line. Is
this a problem?
There is a trace of oil at a junction between a line and
silicone connector. Is this a problem?
I'd like to use brake-line or brass tubing instead of
the lines provided. Is that a problem?
1. How do I
prime the pump?
2. Do I need to
prime all the air out of the lines?
I'm running a prime sequence, but nothing is coming out of the nozzle. What's
Does the PRO-OILER need any maintenance?
often do I need to refill my oil container?
I've fitted a Pro-Oiler. Is that the end of chain
I've been riding in dirty conditions. What do I need to
1. PRO-OILER is
a total-loss lubrication system - surely this is harmful to the environment?
