Nemo claim 5000km (3000 miles) per fill up and are probably not far from reality in perfect conditions  - However my last long trip to Italy 3500 miles and back I managed about 1800 miles or so although this was due to extra oiling caused by lots of wet weather over a few days.   I carried a 250ml bottle of reserve oil cable tied to inside of crash bars.

The benefit is also that you can go to any hardware or car parts store on a long trip to get a small thing of gear oil to fill it up again.

I also filed out notches for the zipties for the arms, didn't put any JB weld or anything else, it seems OK with the zip ties anyway. So far I've been pleased, but I'm keeping a little higher oiling regime due to the wet weather we're having.

Im almost done with my bodge-replacement of the oiler drippy thing, and decided on RTW silicone gasket maker as the adhesive, along with two zip ties. It should be nice and dry tomorrow.

If the RTW fails, Ill go back to JB Weld.

You should be fine, I went with the original (even after it came off before I mounted the zip ties) and two tightly fit zip ties  and it's been rock solid. Tested at over 90mph and in rain and wind at high speed. Any decent adhesive will be fine.

I think these would look better and be quite effective provided the surface had been thoroughly de greased

I finished up my replacement bodge for the chain oiler drippy thing tonight, I think it may just work out.

I found a bracket at the local hardware store's building section, the nut in the picture was replaced with a Nylock that I found in my box of misfit tools.


I then drilled two more holes and enlarged the bolt hole - conveniently, the bolt is a 5mm allen and the nut is a 10mm wrench


Making sure everything fits but, at this stage, the drippything looks too much like it came from the Touratech parts bin


A lick o' paint hides a lot of sins


An old tube of gasket maker that keeps on giving


Installed, and stuck on with gasket maker. But zip-ties are my friend.


The easy to remove side panel reveals the threaded tube on the bike's frame


And the tube is under the swingarm. I prefer Bullroarer's idea of getting some proper clips.


Over the years, my collection of RAM mounts, arms and balls has grown to the point where I can spare some for the Cobrra's master cylinder. This fits quite well behind my Garmin GPS mount, but I'll see how this setup works, and may try something else if it's too awkward.

Nice, thanks for the pics! The arm/bracket thing is a good idea. The thing in the box is nicely made, but ultimately it's nothing special and a trip to the hardware store can easily replace it. Nice!

I've had mine for a few months now. It's much simpler and more reliable than the Tutoro, and the chain is far cleaner and better maintained.
