How many times have you neglected the oiling of your chain, specially when riding on a trip. Well, you have no more excuses now with the Nemo2 Chain Oiler from Cobbra.
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).
the Nemo works with a simple twist of the upper reservoir – a 1/4 turn delivers a measured amount of lube to the chain for the next 3 minutes. The lube gets deposited in front of the rear sprocket, then it self-distributes onto the rollers, side plates, and sprocket teeth. Your chain and sprockets will last longer when they’re properly lubed.
The Nemo is small enough to fit in your hand. Don’t let the size fool you, it’ll keep the chain lubed for a long, long time. Refilling is quick and easy. Nemo holds about 30cc of chain lube which is enough for a weekend ride (or in our case a 5-day ride in the hills). When the reservoir is empty, simply unscrew the cap and fill it up, then tighten the cap and you’re ready to roll (and lube). We prefer to use 75W80 gear lube in the Nemo, but you can use practically any fluid including ATF, motor oil, or a commercial liquid chain lube.
Nemo is made by Cobrra Industries located in Slovakia. The components are precision billet aluminum with a black anodized finish. The fit and finish are superb. Mounted on the motorcycle it looks like an OEM part.
You can mount the Nemo anywhere on the bike. Nemo literature shows it mounted on the handlebars… but for adventure bikes we liked mounting it down low – see our mounting videos on YouTube. In that position we were able to reach down and give the chain a quick lube after we rode thru a creek crossing or mud puddle.
