INTRODUCTION

                                                                                                                           

THANK YOU for buying this REDLiNE+™ product.

This Gravity Chain Oiling System™ (hereafter referred to as GCOS) is manufactured by REDLiNE+™ from carefully selected components. We have used the finest of brass connectors for long life of the product.

FEATURES

DIY DIFFICULTY: Easy

     

WARNINGS AND CAUTION

     

QUALIFIED FITMENT: Due care should be taken during installation of the Gravity Chain Oiling System™. Improperly fitted oilers may hamper swingarm and or wheel movement. The installation can be performed if you have experience in DIY; else best to use an experienced mechanic. Inspect the Gravity Chain Oiling System™ assembly after installation to ensure there are no loose washers, nuts, bolts, zip ties and plumbing.

PERSONAL INJURY: Ensure that the bike has cooled down before installing or inspecting the Gravity Chain Oiling System™ to avoid personal injury. Ensure the bike is on a stable platform, ideally using a rear paddock stand. Ensure adequate lighting and ventilation is available for your own safety.

INDEMNITY: By purchasing this product, you agree that REDLiNE+™ will not and cannot be held responsible for any kind of damages arising to you or your vehicle by the installation and usage of this product. Carefully following the instruction in this guide will mitigate most risks.

PRODUCT DETAILS

     

PROBLEM:

Motorcycle manufacturers recommend that final drive chain be lubricated for optimal performance and life of the chain and sprockets. This translates to a lubrication interval of 500Kms under normal conditions.

The problem amplifies when touring for days together over long distances. Lubricating a chain with a fully loaded bike is not an easy task, especially with bikes without a centre stand.

SOLUTION:

The RedLine+ GCOS works on gravity and delivers a continuous supply of lubrication to the chain. Because the lubrication is continuous in nature, the 500 Km interval does not matter. A boon for tourers

INSTALL

  1. Lay the oiler system on the swing arm so that:
  1. The nozzle head will be aligned in such a way that oil can be delivered near to the sprocket edge
  2. The nozzle end face will be parallel to the sprocket surface

  1. Lay the pipeline as shown in the photos

  1. Lay the foam spacer strips as per their description in package contents list, do not stick them yet
  2. On the right side of the bike, locate the rear brake oil container and notice a gap in that area

  1. Through this gap insert the tube and slide it under the front seat
  1. Slide the tube under the seat collar between the rider and the pillion seat

  1. Now check the nozzle position and keep some play in the flexible nozzle pipe
  2. Adjust and stick the foam spacer strips as per their final position
  3. Zip tie the flexible nozzle pipe near the swingarm axle bolt - the nozzle head should remain flexible
  4. Continue the zip tie fastening all the way upto the area under the seat

FINALIZE

  1. Attach the oil container to the open tube end under the seat
  2. Fasten the bolt of the round steel ring fastener to the tube
  3. Place the oiler on the chassis with the spacers as in the  and bolt it down

  1. If the tube is creating an obstruction, unfasten the oil container, unfasten the tube ring, pull the tube out, cut the tube end a bit and repeat above steps

OIL IT

The system is now ready to pour oil.

  1. Pour the specified oil with the valve in the open position
  2. Keep the flow of pouring low and try to pour into the oil container hole
  3. Once topped up, put the lid on lightly and allow the oil to flow and air to escape
  4. Keep topping the oil every 10-15 minutes to avoid air bubbles in the system and collect any oil at the nozzle end in a container to avoid spilling on the ground
  5. If any air bubbles appear, they will go away due to vibrations upon riding the motorcycle

TESTING

     

Ensure the following after installation:

USAGE NOTES

     

Clean and lubricate the chain before using the oiler using the same grade of oil. The system works best when the chain is well lubricated. The system will keep topping up the oil layer on the entire chain and sprocket.

If the system is used on a dry chain, only the outer side of the chain will get lubricated. In this case manually lubricate the chain on both sides and then use the GCOS for normal results.

Sometimes the nozzle hole may get clogged due to muck or dirt. A sewing needle can be used to clean this. If that does not work, dip the nozzle head in diesel and try again.

While touring, do a quick visual inspection of the system to ensure there are no obstructions, leakages or other hazards.

The GCOS is not a replacement for proper chain and sprocket maintenance. For safety of the rider and long life of the chain and sprockets, the chain must be inspected, cleaned and lubricated manually as per the periodic maintenance schedule from the manufacturer.

The valve position must be controlled to adjust the flow. A very slight opening will provide a single drop every 10-15 minutes. This is a good setting for touring. A slightly larger opening will provide more flow for off road or wet conditions to provide more lubrication. You can experiment and find the best position that suits your preference.

Some notes from the Kawasaki User Manual:

GET SET GO!

Now you should be all set for amazing long rides without worrying about constant chain lubrication!

Enjoy riding your motorcycle safely!

Thank You,
