The Nemo 2 Chain Oiler is an on-board, on-demand chain oiling system. You lube your chain only when it’s needed, which means you control the process. We generally lube the chain when we start in the morning, sometime mid-day, and again at the end of the day (5 minutes before we stop).
Cobrra work on the development and innovation of motorcycle accessories and other equipment. They are known worldwide for the Nemo 2 - a mini chain oiler.
Handy oiling systemBy: Anthony Fathers on 21 October 2019After years of dry chains or carting bulky chain lubes on trips, I've bitten the bullet and bought the Cobbra Nemo 2. Fitting to my DR650 was easy, although I needed to supply my own bracket. They can also mount on your bars, so the need for your own bracket depends on where you mount it. Mine's on the frame, just above the chain and below the side plastics. There is no connection to electrics or vacuums or any of that nonsense - it's manual/hydraulically operated. Twist and oil flows. First use, you twist the head 180 deg to prime and flow, thereafter 90 deg. Oil flows for three minutes. Cobbra recommend a twist at each fuel stop. I'm using 80w90 gear oil, and there is some fling off onto the tyre, but not on the tread. So why not five stars? The fling off is a mild concern, I might have to reposition the outlet to where Cobbra recommends - closer to the rear sprocket than the DR's chain guide makes easy. Don't twist too close to the of your ride - I now have a fresh oil spot on my clean pavers although I rode 20km after my first 180deg twist. My chain smells like gear oil, but is well lubricated!
Beats doing it manuallyBy: Andrew Morris on 20 July 2018This little thing is great!! Give it a twist and the lube happily drips down onto the chain for a few minutes - definitely beats lubing it by hand!!
My First Chain OilerBy: Stuart Green on 11 April 2018As the title suggests, this is the first time I have ever used an automatic chain oiling system , and the powers that be must have let me know that the best one had just been released and its time I purchased the Cobrra Nemo Chain Oiling system. It was so easy to fit and get working on my BMW F800GS and I'm using a quality 80- 90W gear oil in it and its perfect. I went through a bit of oil initially , mainly due to the fact that everyone wants to know what it is and how it works. I mounted it down near the engine on the Throttle Side so now its just a matter of get on, start the bike, reach down and turn to click , and rest assured that your chain and sprockets are getting the lube they need. Top product and highly recommended. I will be fitting to my old Bonnie too. Cheers
Recommended: By Jove, Yes!By: Glenn Oliver on 7 April 2018When I bought my latest motorcycle approximately a year ago, I decided I wouldn’t have a chain oiler... it’s always a hassle to break into wiring, or get vacuum from somewhere. I convinced myself by saying, “It’s better to manually oil my chain and run my eye over that area of the bike at the same time, looking for any issues”. While looking for something else on AdventureMoto I stumbled across the Cobrra Nemo 2 Chain Lubricator. The principle of creating pressure along the line, by closing-down the lube container in quarter turns seemed like a good idea. I checked out some reviews around the planet and all gave it a rousing thumbs-up, so I bought one right here on AdventureMoto. I can tell you, it works how the manufacturers say it will. It’s a beautifully machined piece of kit, and it delivers chain oil right to the spot where you want it. The suggested quarter turn works perfectly for me, with no excess jumping onto the tyre. Best part for me: You can pour what oil you like into the Cobrra, it doesn’t mind. Recommended? By Jove, Yes!
Oil feed locationBy: Paul Cummins on 2 April 2018I bought the system for my F800GSA some months back. I have relocated the feed to enter the right-hand side cover and feed the inside of the chain about 50mm after the primary sprocket. I'm much happier with this setup; it's oiling the chain nicely with minimal fling off at the rear wheel - much better than when I had it mounted before the rear sprocket. Plus I don't have the ugly and vulnerable plumbing running down the swingarm.
