Back in November 2012, I got wind of a chain lubrication device called the Grease Ninja. Seems like I watched a youtube video of it, and thought it was worth a try, especially at only $15.
I got the impression that Tom, owner of Grease Ninja (and maybe My Space? :D ) was a start-up who had a good product that was not just another 'better mouse trap'.
I'm really glad I bought it, and can't believe I waited so long to try it out. The only reason is because I was procrastinating rigging the apparatus to the spray can.
That was easily tackled in about 3 minutes.

You guys and gals, this thing is a no-brainer! :)

This simple little plastic block is engineered just right to do exactly what it's supposed to. It comes with various straws to fit different size spray nozzles, that’s handy! And it allows you to hold the can straight up for when your spray can is almost empty. The Philips screws: take them out and blow air or WD40 through to clean all the ports. This is a well thought out design. imo.

I think I'll make back the $15 this year in saved (premium high priced) lube. The first time you use it, you'll see how easy it is to get adequate coverage without ANY overspray and no more than 5 or 6 drops of waste.

My endorsement is completely voluntary - I have no interest in Grease Ninja.

They just make a product that really works and is simple, fast, and very cheap.

- It takes a few seconds to figure out to turn the wheel moderately slow.






- This is all the spill I had. Next time I'll have half that or less.




- My chain is a 520, this picture gives a visual of how well the ports line up with the Orings.
They offer another size for 525 or 530 chains. Even bicycle chains. If I was still mountain biking I'd get one for it too.

I'm not sure, I ordered mine 1 1/2 years ago and it came with the straws and adapters along with the actual grease ninja. Look at my first picture.
You actually need the assortment of straws. The repsol nozzle is different than, for instance, the motorex or the PJ1's nozzle.

Check out their site.

Handy gadget :)

Just remember: the grease we spray on the chain doesn't go inside the chain's pins. It makes a grease layer over the o-rings so that the chain's factory grease that's inside the pins won't come out.

Clean good the chain before applying the grease otherwise tiny gravel and dirt will be attached on the grease and worn down the o-rings like sanding paper.

Don't use too much....a thin layer of grease, twice a month is more than enough, even though, after a couple of rides from applying it, the chain may feels a bit dry. Taking a closer look on the o-rings would make one realize that they are still well lubed, and that's what's important the most.

.... v2 should be both a top and bottom half to it, maybe hinge them together so you could clamp it somewhat loosely on the chain ... adding a bottom would lube more completely and would reduce spillage even more.
Adding a bottom would keep the contaminants in that you want to displace while cleaning / lubing a chain.


That is just slicker than opossum shit.:cool:

Tag Team! :D

That might just leave more grease on the bottom of the chain - which will end up getting flung off. Inside the front sprocket cover and all over the back rim.

After using the Grease Ninja, it doesn't need any improvements. It's perfect just as is. :)
